AST specializes in standard and enhanced Hardcoat Anodizing, and now offers multiple enhancement options for a variety of applications and metal types other than aluminum.
Applied under license, GENERAL MAGNAPLATE™ finishes push part performance to the limits of wear, corrosion & mold release performance
AST's LAMBDA line of custom processes are research & development driven solutions tailored to resolve customer specific problems
Industry standard Aluminum finishes performed with 3rd party and in-house verification for customers who require proven compliance
Outperforms conventional hard anodizing in corrosion, friction, non-stick and wear properties.
Superior protection against wear, friction, sticking & corrosion; helps aluminum parts achieve the longevity and performance of chrome and stainless steel.
Polymer-Based coatings providing high non-stick & mold release performance
Tufram® finishes enhance aluminum parts to performance levels not otherwise possible with standard aluminum treatments
Nedox® exceeds the Mold Release & Wear protection performance of common coatings such as, electroless nickel, nickel Teflon and EN+Teflon/PTFE.
Lectrofluor® advanced polymer topcoats can be applied to common metals and outperform most Teflon® coatings in non-stick applications for the Food Industry
