Innovative Leader in the Metal Finishing Industry

Surface Technology, Inc. is driven to innovate and manufacture. Our team takes pride in taking on challenging applications with an inventive mindset to create solutions.

Since 1972, we’ve done this through a unique combination of being both a manufacturer of plating chemical products and an active plating job shop; all accomplished in a solar powered, zero discharge, and environmental award-winning facility with an extensive R&D laboratory.

STI focuses on electroless nickel so we can continually take this technology to new levels. Our products include the breakthrough One-Plate® single component electroless nickel, and high-performance composite coatings with Teflon®, diamond, boron nitride, and silicon carbide.

Just as importantly as the products we have innovated over the years are the products we have yet to develop to meet the needs of our customers, our industry and our world.
