Coatings for Stainless Steel - Presto Black® SSB

Introducing the Presto Black® SSB Cold Blackening System

A new room temperature blackening solution for most stainless-steel substrates. Used as an immersion process, Presto Black® SSB can be equipped with an Ion Exchange system for zero drain pollution.

Why Blacken Ferrous Metals?

A non-dimensional Presto Black® SSB finish is a low cost way to achieve good corrosion protection and enhance sales appeal. With a uniform 0.000030 inch (1 micron) thickness, the porous crystalline structure of the black finish makes it an excellent absorbent base for a rust preventive top coat or an over coat paint. Once sealed, the Presto Black finish resists up to 1,200 hours humidity test without chipping or peeling.

Professional Factory Support

Our factory experts can design and size a system to best fit your needs as well as train your operators and provide ongoing support. Birchwood Technology has pre-configured mini systems, 40 gallon, 100 gallon systems, as well as designing full CNC automated systems.

Mild solutions with no hazardous fumes make the Presto Black® SSB System easy and safe to work with. Your operators and managers will quickly become comfortable with the simple operation and maintenance. Previous experience is not necessary.

Zero Drain Pollution

The Birchwood Technologies Ion Exchange System cleans and purifies the process rinse waters so they can be re-used rather than sent to the drains. Once available to large companies only, this technology is now routinely utilized on process lines of all sizes, with excellent success. Your Company's management like to hear that our finishing systems can operate with zero environmental liability.

Rapid Payback of Capital Outlay

As little as 3-9 months in many cases. Sending parts outside for black oxide is a time-consuming operation with many hidden costs. Our cost comparison helps you identify and quantify these costs and compare them with the low operating cost of the Presto Black® System. The financial justification of in-house blackening is easier than you may think!
