Transactions of the Institute of Metal Finishing provides international peer-reviewed coverage of all aspects of surface finishing and surface engineering, from fundamental research to in-service applications. The coverage is principally concerned with the application of surface engineering and coating technologies to enhance the properties of engineering components and assemblies. These techniques include electroplating and electroless plating and their pre- and post-treatments, thus embracing all cleaning pickling and chemical conversion processes, and also complementary processes such as anodising. Increasingly, other processes are becoming important particularly regarding surface profile, texture, opacity, contact integrity, etc. Overlay coatings frequently involve organic finishes and occasionally vapour or spray deposition. Other coating processes such as spraying and hot dipping also fall within the remit. A Bulletin section features educational and practical material, as well as providing updates on legislative and health and safety developments.
