WE PROTECT YOUR SURFACES

A reliable partner of the Italian and European mechanical engineering industry since 1973

MICRON COATINGS GROUP traces its beginnings to the experience that started in 1973 with the incorporation of Durox Srl, one of the first Italian companies to supply aluminium hard anodizing treatment. This initial experience led to the 1985 incorporation of electroless nickel plating specialist Micron Srl.

Operating in the metals treatment and coating sector, the group stands today as a consolidated supplier recognized throughout Europe. Steady growth over the years has allowed Micron to become a point of reference among the main companies in the precision mechanical engineering sector.

Our solutions are used primarily in the automotive, pneumatics, medical, packaging, textiles, motor sports, cycles and motorcycles, maritime, and aerospace sectors.

For more than 40 years our consistent aim has been total customer satisfaction achieved thanks to our detailed technical know-how and constantly updated skills, plant, and production processes.

ELECTROLESS NICKEL PLATING

Electroless nickel plating is a chemical process of nickel-phosphorus alloy deposition performed by dipping the substrate in a nickel salt aqueous solution. It allows machined components of complex geometries to be coated by depositing a metal film of uniform thickness over the entire surface.

This process differs from nickel electroplating due to the deposition method and surface characteristics. Electroless nickel plating is a functional treatment that imparts enhanced characteristics in terms of even coating thickness, hardness, wear, and corrosion resistance.

Thanks to its characteristics and the possibility of plating all metals, it is the most widely used coating in the mechanical engineering sector.

ALUMINIUM ANODIZING

Anodizing is an electrolytic process that allows the formation of a film of oxide on the surface of aluminium alloy parts. This is the most widely used treatment on aluminium because it imparts excellent surface properties at limited cost.

The anodizing types most widely used in industry are clear anodizing and hard anodizing, and they differ in terms of both surface characteristics and treatment processes.

Hard anodizing is preferable when the surface characteristics of hardness, wear and corrosion resistance are to be maximized. Clear anodizing is used as a light surface protection against corrosion, wear, and scratches.
