Plating is a process in which an ionic metal is deposited onto a conductive surface to form a non-ionic coating. The Hixson team has over 60 years of experience working with metal plating processes. We perform many different types of electrodeposited plating and cleaning in our General and Precious Metals Plating department, most of which are applied to aid in corrosion prevention, cosmetics, and function of different sorts of components. Many materials go through various processes in this department including steel, corrosion resistant steel, and aluminum. While we have expertise with a vast array of materials and processes, Hixson has created a special niche focus on Vacuum Cadmium plating and are proud to be one of the few metal finishers who offer this process.
