plating, anodizing, & finishing Q&As since 1989
ELECTROPLATING STAINLESS IN COLOR
Any help would be appreciated here, I am looking for a better process of coding stainless steel surgical tools, I currently use powder coating equipment with nylon powders, they work good but the process is too long, I am looking for a way to electroplate the tools in different colors, I use a wide variety of colors (red, black, blue, orange, pink, brown, green, etc.), Is there such equipment? Outsourcing is not an option.
Thank you,Vlad Schedrin

Electroplating does not offer colors. Metal platings are either silvery colored or gold colored. But there are electrolytic (anodization) processes available to color stainless steel. Talk to B&M Finishers / Prismatic Stainless Steel [a finishing.com supporting advertiser] [Kenilworth, NJ] or Russamer Labs [Pittsburgh, PA].
