Many finishing options are available, including sandblasting, aquablasting, polishing, plating, painting, powder coating, pad printing and silk screening,
anodizing and machine finishing. We always advise our customers on the best choices for their design.
The three substrates that can be anodized are aluminum, titanium, and magnesium (steel
or stainless steel cannot be anodized). Anodizing will promote the adhesion of paint and
many other coatings. We offer primarily type II coatings which means we color the parts.
Type II offers the possibility of an array of colors as for example (but not limited to) the
colors shown in the picture. General purposes for anodizing also include:
· wear resistance
· corrosion resistance
· heat dissipation
· non-conductive properties
· improved paint/coating adhesion
In order to achieve the brushed finish we utilize 3M® abrasives. We can apply brushed
finishes to your custom specifications. Otherwise we usually offer a No.4 or No.6 finish.
Machine Surface Finish
Using high quality solid carbide cutters from the USA and Europe and industry leading
CAD/CAM software, we are able to achieve superb surface finishes through high speed
machining and cutting strategies.
Painting & Printing
At Mockup Technology we train our craftsmen to perform advanced detailing, painting, and
printing of prototypes. With a focus on producing high quality printed and painted
prototypes, we also invested in a clean room paint facility,the only one of its kind in
China. Our topcoat facility ensures the absence of silicone contaminants and dust, and
also allows us to deal with the extreme humidity in China. Our prototype painting and
printing specialists wear full-body suite and full-face active carbon respirators to avoid
contaminating the paint in any way.
Color Matching Service
At Mockup Technology we understand very well that the color of your finished product can be
as important as its function. We offer extensive color matching services using standardized
lighting conditions, and we’ve recently invested in Pantone® plastics opaque selector chips
to help clients better visualize the finished look of molded plastic parts.
In the past, molding customers would specify Pantone® colors using a system of colored
inks printed on white card stock. These colors are notoriously difficult to match with molded
plastic parts because the effect of a three-dimensional part on the color is very dependent
upon the thickness and translucency of the molding.
