Analysts expect the global auto market to grow by 9% in 2021.* But COVID-19 is fueling supply chain disruptions and unplanned downtime, making it difficult for manufacturers to meet demand.
You can boost productivity by choosing the right metal finishing solution—and Bales can help. We fuse science and craftsmanship to deliver exceptional results for automotive manufacturers worldwide.
Since 1978, we’ve been protecting metal surfaces in ways others don’t dare. From headlights to engine covers, your automotive components will benefit from our legacy of customer satisfaction, integrity, and innovation.
Automotive manufacturers need to maximize productivity. Boost yours with Bales’ Hard Chrome and proprietary NICKLON™ and Diamond E.N.™ coatings, ideal for preventing wear and sticking in automotive components. Use our combined plating and polishing services to achieve your finishing specs.
Thanks to superior abrasion resistance, Hard Chrome is a reliable and durable coating for automotive applications. It’s also non-magnetic and mimics the finish of base materials.
Bales’ proprietary NICKLON™ coating combines Electroless Nickel and PTFE, making it a go-to solution for automotive applications. Protect against wear and corrosion while achieving optimal lubricity and release.
Electroless Nickel combines with nano-sized diamond particles to form Bales’ proprietary Diamond E.N.™ coating. With a low coefficient of friction, Diamond E.N.™ can take on your wear and release issues all at once. It’s also a faster, more cost-efficient alternative to Hard Chrome.
