BLASTING & TUMBLING
This process is done prior to plating & anodizing to create a desired appearance once the coating is applied. Processes can vary greatly based on customer expectations. Some customers prefer to handle this themselves and some prefer us to take care of this process. There are also options to skip this step through chemical etching prior to the anodize process.
Laser marking or etching is a process of removing (ablation) anodize to the base material to create letter, numbers or logos. It is often seen on the upper rails of assault rifles. Much like blasting & tumbling, some customers choose to handle this on their own or have us take care of it.
