Take a look at our services below and feel free to contact us about any questions or inquiries.

Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO)

PEO, also known as Micro Arc Oxidation, is a low temperature non line of site electro-chemical process that creates multi functional ceramic coatings on the surface of components immersed in an environmentally friendly electrolyte.

Plasma Electrolytic Polishing (PEP)

PEP is a non line of site electro-chemical polishing process that is performed to components immersed in an environmentally friendlt electrolyte, allowing high levels of surface finishing

Ultrasonic Activated De-Painting (UADP)

(UADP) is an environmentally friendly process to remove the paint and the primer from metallic components. The de-painting process involves the use of high energy ultrasonicator filled with an environmentally friendly water-based solution that is specific to the alloy being de-painted.

Low Friction Coatings (DLC, TiMoS2) Performed by IBC Coatings

Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) and Titanium-Doped Molybdenum Disulfide (TiMoS2) are amorphous nano-composite coatings with a combination of high hardness and low friction properties, for unparalleled resistance to fretting, galling, and sliding wear.
