Surface Treatment


Surface Treatment of Our Connector

The main surface treatment process of our GX-16 connectors is Liquid Coating. It is a technique widely used in the automotive and the furniture industries.


Liquid coating is essentially the liquid version of the more well-known powder coating. Our technician will carefully apply the liquid on the detachable connectoar with a spray gun. The liquid is consisting of additives, carriers, pigments, and resins. After the liquid has been applied evenly, the connectors will be cured at 70°C for 30 minutes in the oven. We will then inspect for any chipping or flaking, those that didn’t pass our QC will be recoated afterwards.

Our black GX-16 connectors and push-pull connectors are finished with electroplating. This is a technique to be processed by the manufacture. Basically, a thin layer of metal is being plated to the connector using electricity. Those metals include but not limited to chromium, gold, and nickel.
