GALVANIC
FINISHES

what is
a galvanic
finish?

Esclusive galvanic finishes
Chrome, bronze and gold plating are just a few of the many galvanizing solutions we offer (no paint or varnish). We use a lasting and noble chemical process during which a metal piece is coated with a metal finish in order to protect it and give it lustre.

Experience and accuracy distinguish BLUmetal metal finishes in the market, creating a vast range of shades, patterns and shines for the interior design, door and window frames, accessories and boat sector.

Blu Metal galvanic finishes give your products a unique touch.

process

Our full A to Z production process

Production
workflow

We welcome and follow every client up until the quality control before packing of the individual pieces. The core galvanization process spans three specific phases.

Check and preparation

Check and
preparation

Every piece is checked; if it is unfit, we will prepare it before continuing with the procedure. Once all pieces are ready, we move on to the next phase.

Galvanizing

Galvanizing
treatment

A piece is first degreased then, in the case of aluminium, treated to improve its adherence, and finally dipped into a bath and coated with its finish material through electrogalvanization.

Finishing, varnishing, protection

Finishing and
protection

According to the specific requirements, a piece will be buffed or brushed in order to obtain the requested finish, and consecutively varnished for protection.

A range of
possibilities

A galvanic finish is applied onto the metal (no plastic, wood or any other non-metallic material).

Here you can find a schematic representation of the wide range of factors, possibilities and choices that Blu Metal can combine for you and your products.
