At Elm Plating Company, our focus on zinc plating makes us an industry leader. We offer our customers the best in zinc and chromate plating in a wide range of colors and thicknesses. Our automated barrel zinc plating equipment is perfect for your all-metal fasteners and stampings, and Elm Plating's 3 batch ovens and 1 continuous bake oven run at 400° F ±25°F for 4 hours, which provides your carbon steel and cast iron components with superior zinc plating and full protection against hydrogen embrittlement stress cracking concerns.

We also offer great post-plate operations like chromating, integrated lubricants, wax, seals, passivation and centrifugal drying. Our testing and inspection abilities allow us to guarantee that your fasteners and stampings will meet or exceed the industry's toughest standards, including TS16949 certification and CQI-11 compliance. Plus, we offer lead times of only 3-5 days, and our logistics, trucking, invoicing and price quotes derive value-added benefits to our customers.
