What is Metal Refinishing?

Luis Restorations specializes in metal refinishing, providing affordable and reliable service in doing so. Metal refinishing has been a practice of Luis Restorations since their inception and trusting your possessions in their hands is the best move you could make for your valuables.

Also known as metal finishing, this process is used to preserve your metals. Products made from metals would only last a mere fraction of their lifespan due to corrosion and wear. This is why it is important to keep an eye on your metal products to ensure they are maintaining their properties and not deteriorating in any way.

Metal refinishing is also used to enhance electrical properties, shape and form components and to enhance the bonding of adhesives and organic coatings. Metal refinishing can also used for decorative purposes, as the process can spruce up an older looking item.

Some products that undergo metal finishing do so for the following reasons:

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Wear resistance
  • Electrical conductivity
  • Electrical resistance
  • Reflectivity and appearance (e.g., brightness or color)
  • Torque tolerance
  • Solderability
  • Tarnish resistance
  • Chemical resistance
  • Ability to bond to rubber (e.g., vulcanizing)
  • Hardness
