We use Aluminum from foundry's here in the US. We specifically use 6061 Aluminum for our products.
All steel products are made from Stainless steel to prevent rusting. The Stainless steel also has a better appearance for our specific products and will last many years and is also US sourced.
To have that "chrome" shine we hand polish many of our items in house.
The Satin look is more of a "dull" non shine look. It gives the products a "flat' grey look. When the products allow it we hand drill the ends of our Satin Products to give the product a detailed chrome shine look at the ends.
For our Aluminum products we use an Aluminum Anodizing company to help color many products. Specifically we use Standard Anodizing Sulfuric Acid Type II. This helps provide excellent abrasion and corrosion resistance for many years.
Cerakote is a ceramic based finish that can be applied to metals, plastics, polymers and wood. The unique formulation used for Cerakote ceramic coating enhances a number of physical performance properties including abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness.
