The portfolio of finishes provided by KC Jones Plating Corporation, is one of the largest of any single source in the United States. Our widespread expertise delivers solutions to counter corrosion, adhesion and wear. Both existing and custom KC Jones coatings can provide protection against the wide range of surface challenges manufacturers commonly contend with.
Electroless Nickel Phosphorus (EN-P)
A uniform finish, excellent corrosion resistance, low coefficient of thermal expansion, and high melting temperature make electroless nickel an ideal coating. Common applications include: automotive components, railroad diesel shafts, electrical motors, printing rolls, oil wells, mining, military equipment, textile, and electronics.
Electroless Nickel Boron (EN-B)
Electroless Nickel boron offers superior, wear and abrasion-resistance. It has an ultra low co-efficient of friction (rivaling Teflon™), which is important to high wearing and rolling applications. Nickel Boron also withstands extremely high temperatures.
Miccrolloy™ Bronze Plating
Attractive in appearance, bronze plating is a superior alternative to solid bronze. It is a robust, high wearing solution. Common applications for bronze plating include aircraft parts, transmission gears, engine components, and hoist hooks.
This attractive, corrosion resistant coating is a proven cadmium replacement that is sacrificial and non-embrittling to steel. KC Jones offers a unique, high-nickel formulation of Zinc-Nickel that produces the highest quality finish. Common applications include fasteners, electrical connectors, and fluid transfer tubes.
Zinc Plating (Zn)
Offering a bright, aesthetic, jewel-like finish, zinc plating is extremely durable. It protects metals from rust and corrosion. Common applications include springs, military hardware, brake systems, hydraulic fittings, lock washers, screws and bolts, and a host of other applications.
ADDITIONAL VALUE ADDED SERVICES
KC Jones offers various value-added services for the convenience of plating customers. Each service plays a role in providing the highest levels of part protection.
This clean, bright finish is ideal for large and small parts. Copper brazing produces joints that are strong and leakproof. Common applications include ion and electron beam devices, x-ray tubes and parts that must endure extremely high temperatures.
When adhesives and sealants are pre-applied, manufacturers save time and money. Adhesive and sealant techniques can be applied to a variety of components, such as fasteners, fittings, screws, bolts, rivets and many more.
KC Jones has delivered plating expertise to manufacturers throughout North America since 1955. We have always had an unwavering commitment to excellence, to the environment and to use of up-to-the-minute technologies.
