Black oxide is a chemical coating for steel and iron based parts. The resulting coating or chemical film provides increased corrosion resistance and cosmetic enhancement. Black oxide coating is a very cost effective means to enhance the cosmetics of a part because it provides a consistent black finish.
Benefits of Black Oxide Coatings
- Improved cosmetic quality
- Increased corrosion resistance
- Protection without any dimensional change
- Increased lubricity and abrasion resistance for anti-galling
- Reduced glare
