Metal Finishing keeps readers informed on the practical and technical aspects of finishing metal and plastic products, including waste treatment and pollution control.
Metal Finishing provides how-to articles along with news, developments, patents, and shop problems.
The supplement, the
Metal Finishing Guidebook & Directory Issue, is a complete source for all metal finishing process operations, from basis material preparation to final quality control testing. An additional supplement, the
Metal Finishing Organic Guidebook & Directory is the complementary complete source for all organic finishing operation.
Both Guidebooks and Directories contain complete listings of manufacturers of finishing equipment, processes and supplies with addresses and phone numbers for easy accessibility.
