A Special Message from Birchwood Technologies

Birchwood Technologies- In-house blackening options are convenient, fast and safe. Free sample blackening, send your sample parts today- there's no obligation.
Call 952-937-7931

Sending parts out for hot oxide finishing can be costly and bothersome, creating gaps in ISO and JIT programs. Today’s in-house blackening is convenient, fast and safe. In house cold blackening systems restore your control over part finishing and often pay for themselves in 3-9 months. There is no drain pollution or safety problems. Systems are available for all iron and non-stainless steels. Pre-engineered finishing systems supplied complete start with the BK-TT mini TruTemp or BK-1 Mini Presto® Black 5 gallon line for tool room scale or limited production scale blackening. The BC-20 tank system has large production line features without space and cost requirements. The 40 gallon BC-40 tank line utilizes eight heavy duty welded tanks. The 100 gallon BC-100 tank line utilizes 100 gallon heavy duty welded tanks.

In-House Black Oxide Process
The BC-40E Tru Temp black oxide system from Birchwood Casey is pre-engineered for quick setup and safe operation during in-house processes.

Going Lean Has Positive Benefits For Metal Finishing
The rationale behind lean manufacturing applies very directly to metal coating and finishing processes. The cost savings are often greater than one might expect.

Prototype-Scale Aluminum Blackening Line
Manufacturers that require same-day black finishing of small lots of aluminum parts can blacken parts in-house and achieve a durable, satin-black finish using the mini BK-LC line, according to manufacturer Birchwood Casey. The Lumiclad process utilizes a simple dip-tank procedure to form a durable, black-oxide coating on aluminum.

The Advantages Of Bringing Finishing In-House
You’ve made sure the parts were machined to spec. Now take the steps to protect those parts in the condition your customers expect them.

Blacken Aluminum In-House
Birchwood Casey’s Lumiclad black oxide process is a safe, in-house method for forming a durable black finish on virtually all aluminum alloys, the company says. Unlike black anodizing, which uses electrolytic chemicals to form the coating, the black oxide process uses a dip-tank procedure. According to the company, the non-dimensional (1.
