Selective plating or painting is accomplished in a number of different ways. Tapped holes can be masked with a simple plug or threaded fastener. A contact face can be protected by the use of specialized tape, a liquid paint on masking system, or custom made fixtures. Some more sophisticated selective coating techniques involve machining discreet areas after coatings are applied and then a touch up procedure may be employed. In some instances the use of a laser has been used with great success. The key to any masking effort is the ability to repeat the process with a successful outcome. Wolkerstorfer prides itself on our ability to “create” the ideal masking scenario to meet the most demanding of applications.
