Nasmyth West Middlesex

Nasmyth West Middlesex operates from our facility in Uxbridge to deliver specialised metal coatings along with decorative and corrosion preventative solutions. We are Nadcap approved for chemical processing, honing our ability to provide complete and total services for the aerospace, defence and associated complex industries. Our dedication to the expansion and evolution of our skillset, both as a business as well as individuals, is reflected through our commitment to provide world-class services to our customers; building strong, long-term relationships.

Alkaline Zinc

Alkaline zinc is a quintessential application for the diverse markets of Nasmyth Group. With flexibility of this hard material under extreme heat, alkaline zinc can be utilised by Nasmyth to produce industrial necessities from nuts and bolts to heavy electrical transmission units and armoured vehicles. To further equip your components, Nasmyth utilises passivation expertise for increased corrosion protection.

Alocrom

In addition to Nasmyth Group services in passivation, we supply chromate conversion coatings Alachrom 1200 and 1000 for application for use as a pre-paint coating for electrical conductivity requirements or application to aluminium to prevent corrosion. These coatings are selected by Nasmyth Group for optimal practice due to provision of a premium foundation for paint and organic components and minimal changes to surface appearance.

Cadmium

Nasmyth technicians are skilled in application of bright, dull, chromate and olive finishes to enhance the corrosion resistance coating properties and appearance of components and connectors, particularly for the aerospace and automotive industry. Cadmium plating gives the benefit of a smooth, defect free guise.

Chromic

Nasmyth Group is specialist in providing top quality protection of your parts from corrosion and wear through utilisation of our variety of anodising treatments. The application of Nasmyth’s range of anodic films can be used to improve adhesion and lubrication for paint primers, as well as tailoring metal aesthetics. Nasmyth Group chromic anodisation opaque softer films that are self-healing and ductile. They are often used as a treatment prior to our specialist painting processes.

Complex Masking

Nasmyth Group continually refine this critical element of the finishing process. Masking specific areas allows multiple finishes to be applied in close proximity to the same part, allowing one area to be anodized while the rest of the part remains intact. We use masking resins that are formulated to provide superior surface protection and chemical resistance during chemical processes. Nasmyth Group’s capability to mask and seal all components in one step provides efficiency and cost reduction to our services.

Copper

Nasmyth Group utilise this malleable metal for electroplating with a range of pliable products. Electroplated copper is often used as base coat alongside our nickel plating services for matchless corrosion protection. Nasmyth's copper electroplating gives improved adhesion to other materials as an undercoat and first rate conductivity and even coverage as a coating, making this service and aerospace and electronics markets must-have.

Dull Nickel

Excellent for mechanical properties due to material ductility, Dull Nickel is a popular plating choice, resulting in a matt finish that can be polished by Nasmyth Group’s highly experienced technicians to shine as bright nickel. The soft properties of Dull Nickel allow for a fitting material solution to any mobile component.

Electroless Nickel

Perfectly suited to engineering applications, the Nasmyth Group electroless nickel plating technique gives the advantage over electroplating of no flux density or power supply issues. Nasmyth have the capability to provide a uniform distribution of electroless nickel coating for simple to complex parts to give full coverage of the highest standard against wear and corrosion.

Flourescent Penetrant Inspection (FPI)

For vivid detection of minute flaws of smooth surface tight pored metals, the contrast of this chemical application accurately validates presence of defects as a safe approved non-destructive test carried out by Nasmyth Group expertise. Nasmyth carry out a variation of non-destructive tests scientifically designed to suit the material and surface type in accordance to the types of suspected damage to form a clear diagnosis.

Grit Blasting

Nasmyth Group provide a grit blasting service in a variation of mediums to fully remove corrosion, paint and mould flash from surfaces as a crucial pre-treatment operation useable for an array of components. This high pressured pneumatic action combined with a selected abrasive material deburrs contoured machined parts and gives a matte finish.

Grit blasting services are undertaken in house at Nasmyth alongside our specialist paint services to the highest standards at full Nadcap approvals and company requirements.

Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI)

Nasmyth Group provides this thorough service for subsurface detection within ferromagnetic materials and alloys by direct or indirect magnetization. Application of ferrous particles in differing arrangements to the tested components give accurate identification of fault presence by leak of magnetic flux, with aid of ultraviolet light to present the location of the ferrous particle build up. These non-destructive actions tailored to your specifications by our highly accredited technicians provide a detailed, approved analysis.

Masking

Nasmyth Group action a full masking service, with the complete design of hard and soft processes for masking, including jig and rack design. Using a variety of best-in class products and services, Nasmyth are able to offer a refined finishing processes, ensuring all services meet customer requirements and our full Nadcap certifications.

Passivation

Nasmyth Group assures product resistance to the elements through our passivation service. Conforming to industry standards, we present a wide choice of specific methods for optimum protection from corrosion; working with differences in acid types, temperatures and additives to promote oxidisation.

Suited for casted and alloyed aluminium, SurTec 650 is a hexavalent chromium free passivation for aluminium suitable for alloyed and casted aluminium. It is a versatile pre-treatment Nasmyth Group use prior to adhesive applications and laquer services Nasmyth provide. The layer created is a result of easy immersion giving first-rate corrosion protection.

Salt Spray

Sulphuric

This Nasmyth Group oxidisation treatment gives resistance to corrosion for a range of industrial parts. Popular as a protective treatment for aluminum, our sulphuric anodising provides a spectrum of surface finishes, colourings and textures in a diversity of thicknesses.
 
Nasmyth’s experienced technicians undertake sulphuric anodising to stringent approvals to provide aesthetic, protective and insulative solutions to a variety of components.
 

Supply Chain Integration

Nasmyth Group is a high-performance, well-established partner in the supply chain integration sector. We have strong relationships that support our core philosophy to meet the demands of our customers. In order to maintain our excellence in supply chain integration, Nasmyth provides a flexible approach, enabling us to adapt to customers’ changing requirements and manage the supply chain accordingly.

Nasmyth’s products keep a range of specialist equipment working to its full potential while our world-class service ensures our customers’ demands are met. Our supply chain integration capabilities allow us to provide a single order concept for the most complex assemblies and demanding finishing processes. Nasmyth Group’s policy of continuous improvement sees each project appointed to a Customer Project Manager who will oversee and control the supply chain for our customers.

We organise transportation and packaging logistics around the requirements of our customers while using bespoke, reusable packaging throughout the supply chain. This enables our project managers and customers to verify products without tampering with the packages.

Tin

Nasmyth Group delivers a soft white metal finish for steel, zinc and lead coatings as a non-toxic resistant to corrosion that bonds readily to iron.

X-Ray Flourescents Testing

Zinc Nickel

Zinc Nickel electroplating is an environmentally safe coat for multiple metallic preservations including steel, cast and malleable irons, brass and copper. Zinc Nickel has the ability to act as a sacrificial layer for corrosion to protect the base coating on parts for longer. Zinc Nickel can be applied to components by Nasmyth Group treatment specialists alongside our array in passivation layering for provision of further product longevity.
