Metal finishing metal and surface coating is a service that includes
anodizing, plating, powder coating and galvanizing, vacuum evaporation,
sputter deposition, arc vaporization, ion plating, and a whole host
of other processes. Most, if not all, require specialized (and expensive)
equipment. The companies listed here offer expertise on the subject,
and should be able to help you achieve your goal.
