Acrylic Art also provides a variety of additional and secondary services to meet the needs of your project.

Painting and Product Finishing

Painting and Product Finishing
Painting and Product Finishing

Many of the items we produce require painting and product finishing. We sub-contract these services to tested and qualified local companies that specialize in these areas. These services include Powder Coating, Industrial Painting and texturing, Anodizing and Plating. Providing these services allow our customers the confidence to receive completely finished products from just one vendor, Acrylic Art.

Anodizing

Anodizing
Anodizing
Anodizing is an electrochemical process that converts the metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish. Aluminum is ideally suited to anodizing, although other nonferrous metals, such as magnesium and titanium, also can be anodized.

Anodized finishes have made aluminum one of the most respected and widely used materials today in the production of thousands of consumer, commercial and industrial products.

Anodized Aluminum:

  • Protects satellites from the harsh environment of space.
  • Used in one of the world's tallest buildings --- the Sears Tower in Chicago, Illinois.
  • Provides attractive, minimum-maintenance, highly durable exteriors, roofs, curtain walls, ceilings, floors, escalators, lobbies and staircases in skyscrapers and commercial buildings throughout the world.
  • Revolutionized the construction of computer hardware, exhibit displays for trade shows, scientific instruments, and a constantly expanding array of home appliances, consumer products, and building materials.
  • Considered environmentally safe, producing few, if any, harmful effects on land, air, or water.

Vapor Polishing

Vapor Polishing
Vapor Polishing
Vapor polishing is a method of polishing plastics to reduce the surface roughness or improve clarity. Typically, a component is exposed to a chemical vapor causing the surface to flow thereby improving the surface finish. This method of polishing is frequently used to return clear materials to an optical quality finish after machining. Vapor polishing works well in the internal features of components.

Benefits of Vapor Polishing:

  • Improves a dull or cloudy finish to a high gloss, referred to as visually clear.
  • Specified by the medical community to smooth out tool marks where debris in blood pump applications can collect.
  • Improves manifold operations of polycarbonate or acrylic by enabling viewing of the inside of the manifold for liquid presence.
  • Also necessary for components that need to pass light unobstructed, such as light emitting diodes in component cavities.
  • Cosmetic reasons: Smooths any tool marks or slight imperfections to give the finished part a glossy professional look.

Screen Printing

Screen Printing>
Screen Printing

Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A roller or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink past the threads of the woven mesh in the open areas.

Screenprinting is more versatile than traditional printing techniques. The surface does not have to be printed under pressure, unlike etching or lithography, and it does not have to be planar. Screenprinting inks can be used to work with a variety of materials, such as textiles, ceramics, wood, paper, glass, metal, and plastic.

Vinyl Lettering

Vinyl Lettering

Computer Generated Vinyl Lettering is a time and cost saving method for individual or low quantity graphics. Vinyl Lettering is available in several fonts, sizes and colors as well as Custom Logos and details. When we produce single items requiring lettering and/or graphics, Computer Generated Vinyl is faster and lower in cost than Screen Printing.

Engraving

Engraving

Acrylic Art has in-house Engraving Capabilities. We are able to engrave your Logo and Lettering on a variety of materials. We frequently engrave Date Stamping or Coding for batch identification as well as Logos, Product Identification and any graphics required for each project. Our customers often have measuring scales, dimensional numbers and corner locators engraved for accurate positioning and other product requirements.

We also will sub-contract Laser Engraving when different textures or finer details are required for the Final Product.

Precision Cleaning

Precision Cleaning
Precision Cleaning

Inadequate cleaning leaves undesirable particulate or chemical residues, which can cause device malfunctions or even complete system failures. Proper precision cleaning increase system uptime, extends the life of 1vacuum system components, increase system yields, and reduce operating costs.

Benefits of Precision Cleaning:

  • ISO Certified
  • Optimizes the amount of substrate material removed in cleaning, thereby maintaining dimensional integrity and increasing the service life of parts. ???
  • Alternate strategies are used for removing deposits that are extremely resistant to chemical and/or mechanical cleaning.
  • Changes the surface texture of materials so as to enhance the desirable adhesion of deposits.
  • Improves the cosmetic appearance of parts, which can reduce concern about the existence of undesirable residues.
