Dear Ms. Monica P,

Without knowing any of the specifics about your company’s product such as material type, design requirements or the product’s intended end use, I can only make a general recommendation that your company purchase a copy of Volume 5 of the American Society for Metals Handbook for Surface Engineering.

This handbook contains a wealth of information regarding metal surface requirements for electroplating, paints and coatings, surface cleaning and other finishing methods.  Go to www.asm-intl.org then select “Materials Information” then select “ASM Handbooks” to purchase a copy of this reference book.  I hope this helps.

Best regards,

Bill
