Quality Electroplating Services

DeKalb Metal Finishing has provided quality electroplating and metal finishing services for the automotive and general industry sectors for more than 70 years. We offer and specialize in RoHS complaint alkaline electroplating with environmentally friendly trivalent passivates and sealers.


Electroplating works by using electrical current to coat a conductive object with a thin layer of material, such as zinc, zinc-iron, or zinc nickel. Plating is primarily used in order to bestow a desired property such as corrosion protection, abrasion and wear resistance, or aesthetic qualities to a surface that otherwise lacks that property.


Our primary plating services include:


  • Zinc Plating
  • Zinc Nickel Plating
  • Zinc Iron Plating
  • Rack Plating
  • Trivalent Passivation
  • Sealers / Topcoats
