Surface treatment is the process in which the adhered surface of any base material like metal, plastic etc. is cleaned and/or chemically treated to promote better adhesion and enhance properties like improved appearance, wettability, solderability, corrosion resistance, tarnish resistance, chemical resistance, wear resistance, hardness and surface friction. Surface treatment is done to prevent or delay corrosion, make the material more durable and tough to bear extreme wear and tear and increase the surface energy level of a particular metal surface so that it can easily adhere to the printing or coating taking place. Surface treatment of metal plays an enormous role in extending the life of metals, such as in automotive bodies and construction materials. This process of surface treatment further enhances the durability of the components.
