Surface Treatments


Electronic devices rely on a variety of high performance materials, joined together in strong systems according to intricate designs.  But everything falls apart if the joining surfaces are not perfectly conditioned.  Surfaces must be cleaned, etched, textured, coated, and bonded with atomic-scale precision.  We have the surface treatment systems to perform the most demanding functions for the highest level technological devices.  Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to learn more about our Surface Treatments.
