Cold Chemical Blacking

Cold Chemical Blackening

Dorsetware offers cold chemical blacking at our facility in Poole, Dorset, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Devon and the M3 corridor. Cold chemical blacking, also referred as chemical blacking and metal blackening, is the process of blackening steel using the chemical blackening process. This produces a striking black, firmly adherent finish on nearly all ferrous metals such as iron, steel and brass surfaces. These processes are also known as parkerise and blackodise.

Cold chemical blacking provides a coating that is integral with the steel or aluminium surface, providing virtually no dimensional change. Corrosion protection is obtained by applying oil.

From tool pieces to automotive parts, the finish will not chip, flake, rub or peel off and the effects of the metal blackening include reduced light glare or reflection and improved lubrication characteristics.
