Did you know that Capitol City Bolt & Screw Co., Inc. has siblings ?  

As the oldest, largest, and most successful "Fastener House" in the state - Capitol City Bolt has grown to create "sister" businesses to support the needs of their customers.  This "family" of local businesses stand separately, but work first to support each other.  This increases our competitive edge, allowing us to deliver world class service.

In the next couple of posts, we will share more information about some of these other enterprises.

One sister business is: QUALITY PLATING CO., Inc. in Nashville Tennessee.

What follows is a brief listing of their plating capabilities ... to contact (and for more information) see:

  Processes / Capabilities
Electroless Nickel
Electroless nickel is a rack process, suitable for complex shapes and large-size components. We can coat a part up to 8 ft. long, 4 ft. wide, & 4 ft. deep.
Powder Coating
Powder coating is a rack process in which parts are sprayed with a dry powder paint and then placed in an oven, where the powder particles melt and unite to form a continuous film. We have done jobs as small as drawer knobs and as large as the rails that cars at local dealerships sit on. The paint is available in many colors. You pick the color you want from one of our color charts and we can order it if we don't already have it in stock.
Zinc Plating
Zinc Plating using either Hexavalent or Trivalent chromate is processed on one of our barrel plating lines. Barrel plating can accommodate a wide variety of shapes and sizes, as well as different metals and alloys. Generally any part that can fit through the opening in the barrel can be plated. However, heavy parts have a tendency to nest, causing a non-uniform appearance in chromate color. Trivalent chromate is available in clear, yellow, and black. Hexavalent chromate is available in clear, yellow, black, green, blue, red, and olive drab.
Black Oxide
Black oxide is a rack process in which the coating is applied by submersing the parts into a boiling salt solution. The coating penetrates into the base material, therefore there is no dimensional change. We have the capacity to coat a part up to 10 ft. long, 4 ft wide, and 4 ft. deep.
Parts can either be racked or dipped to process. During a chemical passivation treatment, the surface of a part is chemically treated by a mild oxidant. The treatment removes free iron and other foreign contaminants and promotes the formation of a chromium-rich corrosion resistant layer. We have the capacity to passivate a part up to 10 ft. long, 4 ft. wide, and 4ft. deep.
