Masking Products And Their Applications

25 Feb, 2022 hitekadmin

Masking products are often an essential part of the production and finishing processes. Masking is employed in many finishing operations where only a specific part or area of the surface needs to be exposed to the finishing process.

Manufacturers and fabricators in a range of industries all over the world use masking products for powder coating, wet painting, anodising and electroplating processes. Many masking products can also be used for other purposes, for example, thread and stem protection of delicate components during transit.
