Reliable anodizing and blasting company
« on: April 20, 2020, 07:38:15 AM »
Hi all.

Anybody know of a reliable anodizing and bead blasting company here in Sa.

Only one I have seen work from is a company in PE and I would prefer not to send my stuff to them.

Stay far away from SACoating. Had some computer stuff done by them. The panels came out fine - but they completely dissolved 12 water cooling fittings! They were going to anodize them but needed to strip the old paint off. Zero compensation - no apology - no anything! R149 per fitting!

Astro Holdings, Sebenza Edenvale.

Did some bike parts for me a few years ago. Think the chap I dealt with was Mark. Excellent service & great quality. Looked really good & lasted well. Until it hit the tar at Phakisa.  :ROFLMAO:
