Specialty Materials, Surface Coatings, and Plating

Corrosion and wear resistance are important material considerations in the nuclear power industry. Components must be expertly finished to resist the effects of everyday wear and tear. They must also be made of materials capable of withstanding the operating environment within a nuclear power system.

Many nuclear power components are made from 300 & 400 series Stainless Steel because of its superior resilience. Hard Chrome plating and Carbon Graphite liners are also common. Our team of experienced grinders is able to work with these materials in a way that won’t chip or damage the surfaces of the products. We are also able to work with a wide range of specialty materials as needed.
