Finishing process for aluminum castings
I'm researching suitable finishing processes (coatings, etc.) for aluminum castings that form part of pumps. The "ideal" description of the coating I require would be: Not to show fingerprints Non-chipping Fast application Cheap Environmentally friendly Look suitable for use in a scientific environment (i.e. To look more like a domestic appliance as opposed to an industrial machine) Could you please advise me of any suitable processesLeigh Smith

Unusual word is causing some confusion on my part. Are you looking for a negative surface finish to the raw casting item or a positive protective coating?
