Advanced Heat Treat has new premium black oxide service


Advanced Heat Treat Corp., a recognized leader in heat treatment and metallurgical solutions, has a new black oxide option. The oxidation is a darker black color than the original offering. The additional option will be available as a stand-alone black oxide treatment and as part of the UltraOx® heat treatment (referred to as UltraOx Hyper).

AHT President Mike Woods said, “Now our customers have a choice when it comes to the appearance and metallurgical results of their carbon steel and alloy parts. They can opt for our standard offering or choose an even darker oxide finish.”

UltraOx and black oxide are often used by manufacturers serving industries such as firearms, agriculture, automotive, and more. The treatments provide an aesthetic black color and protection against wear and corrosion. UltraOx has been proven to last more than 300 salt spray hours before developing signs of rust.

AHT’s new black oxide and UltraOx Hyper are available at its Monroe, Michigan location. The facility also offers ion nitriding, gas nitriding, ferritic nitrocarburizing, stress relieving, and more.
