Friday, May 19, 2017   (0 Comments)

PALATINE, Illinois, USA, May 9, 2017 鈥 Arlington Plating Company is proud to announce the company鈥檚 fully automated aluminum anodizing operation has been approved by General Motors. Meeting the GMW14665 material specification, 鈥淎nodic Oxidation Coating on Aluminum,鈥 exterior automotive trim parts up to 100鈥 in length will soon be processed though the 5000 ft.2 line.

The GM approval certifies that Arlington Plating Company is highly qualified to anodize exterior aluminum parts that address both Class A and Class B alkaline pH requirements, as well as decorative interior trim applications. Recently completed in January 2017, the automated line produces MIL-A-8625 Type II (sulfuric) anodizing with high pH sealants, organic die coloring and electro color capabilities. The line offers bright dip and satin finish applications.

The GM team鈥檚 extensive review included an audit of the 44 process tanks that comprise the anodizing line, as well as best practices and standard operating procedures performed by Arlington Plating Company. GM noted that the installation of the automated line, representing over a $2 million dollar investment, factored into granting GMW14665 approval so quickly.
