Surface Improvement

Surface treatments and coatings are processes that are used to improve the surface properties of materials, whether to protect them from corrosion, improve their wear resistance or change their aesthetic properties. These processes may involve the deposition of a layer of material on the surface of the substrate, as is the case with metal, ceramic or polymeric coatings. They can also involve modification of the surface of the material through chemical, physical or mechanical processes, such as engraving, anodizing or heat treatment. The choice of the right treatment or coating depends on the type of material, its properties and its application environment, and can be key to improving the life and performance of the material in question.

Surface treatments and coatings

Tratamientos y Recubrimientos Superficiales, Shot Peening

Shot Peening

Process used to improve the mechanical properties of various materials, especially metals. It improves fatigue resistance, durability and corrosion cracking resistance, while reducing the propensity to surface cracks and stresses.

Tratamientos y Recubrimientos Superficiales, Cromo Duro

Hard Chrome

Treatment that is applied to different parts and components to improve their physical and chemical properties. This chrome layer confers a high level of hardness, resistance to corrosion and wear and abrasion, making it suitable for various industrial applications.

Tratamientos y Recubrimientos Superficiales, Proyección por Plasma

Plasma spraying

Process used in the industry to modify the characteristics of materials by applying a thermal plasma jet.

Tratamientos y Recubrimientos Superficiales, HVOF


Process that belongs to the category of thermal spray coatings. The result is a dense, adherent and highly resistant coating capable of resisting abrasion, erosion and impact wear, which improves the mechanical properties and service life of the treated surface.
