Metal finishing can be defined as the modification of metal substrates/surfaces through the placement of a covering or coating on the surfaces of those metal substrates. Similar to the way in which precision sheet metal fabrication and assembly fits into general fabrication processes, metal finishing is a general process that comprises a significant number of specific varieties depending on the material substrate.
The purpose of metal finishing is the adaptation of metal substrates to specific environments in which they are used. In this way metal finishing serves to increase or decrease certain properties of metal products in order for those products to better perform their assigned functions or resist decay. Therefore, precision metal finishing specifically applies certain coatings to – or, alters the surfaces of your components in order to best maximize the longevity and productivity of your systems and equipment.
The fundamental reason for metal finishing is the customization of your metal components to certain environments or applications, Alpine Metal Products treats all finished metal parts as a unique component that requires a unique solution.

Adapting Your Precision Metal Components to the Right Environments
All precision parts must perform certain functions in an assembly. The proper finish is just as critical as the proper dimensions. Everyday, parts are exposed to caustic or harmful chemical agents in their environment. The protective finish is your protection on the investment in your precision parts and or assemblies. Metal finishing is a must for your metal components ensuring the highest amount of durability, helping them last as long as possible. For scientific fields, the medical industry, aviation, or general industrial applications, your precision metal components must not fail due to lack of proper finish.
