Case Study: Electroless Nickel Effectively Coats Buoyant Part

A metal float ball manufacturer needed help after its long-time plating supplier went out of business. But plating buoyant parts is challenging. Bales stepped up to the task, developing a custom coating solution that reduced processing time and costs. “Bales was the only one who could come through for us. Others just couldn’t meet our needs.” - Jason Speer, President of Quality Float
