We have earned this metal finishing reputation from years of quality metal polishing and buffing workmanship, competitive pricing and flawless metal polishing services.
Arlington Plating Company has been polishing and buffing metals for over 60 years. The metal finishing that we do is usually to prepare the metal part for electroplating. The metal polishing and buffing process uses a wide range of materials and methods to smooth a surface depending on the original condition of the part. Castings with parting lines of sufficient size may need to be polished with an 80 grit abrasive and then finished with a progressively higher grit sequence of polishing abrasives. Polishing witness marks can also be removed with a range of buff treatments and compounds. The treatments vary in texture and stiffness depending on the application/use and the buff compound materials which actually effect the finishing.
