MICRON COATINGS Group

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

The MICRON COATINGS Group was formed from the union of Micron and Durox, both having decades of experience in the surface coatings sector.

Incorporated in 1973 in the province of Udine, Durox specialized in anodized aluminium coatings from the onset and was among the first Italian companies to develop the hardcoat anodizing process.

Micron was incorporated in 1985 in the province of Cremona, on the back of the founding partners’ experience in the surface treatments sector. Having grasped the enormous potential of electroless nickel plating applied to the precision machining sector, the company made it a core specialization, developing processes, plants, and treatment solutions.

The group operates in the metal treatment and coatings sector and is today a well-established and respected supplier throughout Europe, marketing its services under its proprietary trademarks.

Thanks to the excellent quality of the service and a vocation for working alongside customers in the product and project development phases, the group has earned the reputation of a reliable partner among top manufacturers in the automotive, pneumatic, medical, and packaging sectors, and in the field of precision machining in general. Our constant focus for more than 40 years has been total customer satisfaction, which we achieve through our legacy of technical know-how and constantly evolving skills, plant, and production processes.

Two companies, shared objectives

Thanks to the synergy between Micron and Durox and the experience accumulated in more than 40 years in business, we can offer a wide range of treatments supported by reliable and professional services.

All-round quality

Our primary aim has always been that of delivering treatments of the highest quality standards in terms of coating characteristics and customer service.

The experience gained over the years and the development of a state-of-the-art laboratory allow us to guarantee a reliable, specialized level of technical support.
