Clean & Etch
Titanium part manufacturing results in a surface that cannot bond, and does not accept bonding primers. An alkaline peroxide etching process, also known as clean and etch, leaves a surface texture well suited to adhesive bonding and the application of bonding primers.
Stress Relief Baking
Stress relief baking minimizes stresses caused by the machining and cutting of a part during manufacture. This reduces the likelihood of unwanted dimension changes in parts that often require tight tolerances.
