60919. Tile trim anodizing: 10,000 lengths

January 9, 2019

RFQ: Hi guys

We have purchased around 8 tonnes of bright silver anodized aluminium tile trim from china from 2 different manufacturers, as everyone manufacturer we spoke to in Australia had said that the 0.8mm wall thickness was too small and they were unable to produce a scratch free polished finish. My question is can the scratching be removed on a mass scale or is it not worth the money. We are open to finding another manufacturer outside of Aus but as it's a finishing trim for bathrooms, etc., it needs to be scratch-free.




We have over 10,000 lengths of trim which are not up to our standard. Even a point in the right direction of the right manufacturer to speak to would be a great help!

60791. Anodise removal and re-anodize, NSW Australia

July 7, 2018

RFQ: My situation: I have anodised parts that need to be stripped and re-anodised deep blue. Dimensions are important. Has to be a removal process that does not effect base metal (6061-T6) such as chromic phosphoric acid process which no one seems to do in Australia. Approximately 90 parts. Parts have all only just been anodised, color is inconsistent and some parts have leaching visible. Parts are not hard anodised. I will attempt to get a Pantone number for the colour I need.

60854. Quality 18K plating on 925 silver products

May 29, 2018

RFQ: Hi,

I run a jewelry brand that produce sterling silver rings, bracelets and earrings made at our manufacturer in Sweden.

Unfortunately they don't have the equipment to gold plate our jewelry with good quality. The gold layer of rings and bracelets wear off in a couple of weeks.

They say that they plate at 3 micron with 18K gold, but they cannot guarantee it since they don't have measuring equipment.

I'm Looking for a partner that has experience in this field and can provide quality plating, either with TiN layer or a good clear coating that really lasts. Thanks.

I hope one of you may be able to help with this ... I am looking for a company that can help etch 1-6 mm width tracks in a <3 µm aluminum foil that is fused to a very thin mylar membrane. The size of the foil/membrane combination typically is ~ 10 * 15 cms, yet it would be preferred if the sizes can be up to 25 * 50 cms.

I would much appreciate if someone here knows of such a company (within the EU is preferred but not mandatory).
