Sulphuric anodising coatings

If you want a coloured finish to your components for decorative or safety reasons, we can help. Sulphuric anodising puts a hard protective coating on components in a variety of colours including red, blue and black.

Pressure testing

We can pressure test cast and machined parts by using air under water or, for greater pressures, hydraulic testing to replicate their use out in the field. This enables our experts to assess the viability of the component and whether single or double impregnation will restore the required properties.
