The benefits of Birchwood Technologies black oxide finishes include long-term corrosion resistance and a durable, attractive finish. Unlike paint coatings, black oxide is non-dimensional and will not interfere with function of the metal parts. We offer black oxide in Mid-Temperature, Room-Temperature for immersion applications and liquid or gels for brush-on or swabbing applications.
Our black oxide processes include:
All of our black oxide processes mesh with manufacturing production and easily integrate in-house, cutting lead times, increasing productivity, and saving on finishing costs. We have pre-engineered finishing lines to make implementation fast and easy with a mini-system, 40 gallon line, 100 gallon line, CNC Automated line, and provide conversions or upgrades to existing lines.
Our Liquid and Gel Black Oxide products are ideal for swabbing or brush-on applications for metal touch-ups for machined components, in-place finishing for architecture applications, and artistic or sculpture metal working.
Birchwood Technologies offers free sample test finishing and on-site start up for immersion lines to make blackening your metal easy and successful. Our black oxide finishes work with a variety of metals including cast iron, steel, stainless steel and aluminum.
