Devanét® utilise conventional techniques as well as automatic machinery to prepare metal surfaces ready for Electroplating, Ceramic Nano Coatings or Powder Coating. This process is the most important part to ensure the metal is suitably prepared prior to finishing, this can involve several stages from fettling, sandblasting, glass bead blasting, tumbling, polishing and ultrasonic cleaning all of which can take several days from creating the machined buckle or cast belt buckle components.


From our customers point of view, Devanét® has a total package of finishing tools in the factory to undertake most tasks to achieve the desired preparation of buckles, jewellery, glass and other metal components, we do not contract out items unless there is a process we feel would be better served by others, this could be where very large batches are concerned, too save time.


Metal components, buckles, jewellery pieces and other metal objects from brass, pewter, aluminium, bronze, 925 solid silver can all be processed, for satin finishes normally used on the back of objects or where the polished surface is not required, glass bead blasting provides as textured surface finish which does not show up finger marks.


Glass can also be sandblasted to create two tone effects where logos or designs are used to create an attractive finish to the article, the same process can be used in preparing metal objects to show off a polish area contrasting with a matt surface finish.

Sandblasted metal to create a satined soft textured surface finish on silver metal. This process also removes or disguises small surface imperfections, especially noticable on large flat areas.


There are various options including glass bead blasting which gives a cleaner finish over abrasvie grit and is more suitable for jewellery and precious metals.

Patina glass bead blasted buckle

Buckles which are glass bead blasted and then applied with a patina finish can be created with aesthetically appealing finishes without the need for electroplating. Surface preparation to make the surface suitable involves deburring and tumbling with stage 1 then bead blasted and finally the patina applied. Different hues can be achieved depending upon immersion times.


Devanét® can prepare buckles for a number of fnishes these can include coloured ceramic as well a tradtional electroplated finishes.

polished brass buckles

Polished brass buckles always look stunning, however it is important to inform customers, that like all bare metals especially brass and silver the items will tarnish or oxidise in air or in contact with the skin unless coated with a clear laquer or Devanets ceramic coating. Polished brass and silver jewllery, belt buckles and brass components can be surface finished from raw casting or machined brass to a high lustre.

The surface preparation of the buckle and even special recesses can be made are essential to achieve good results.

Surface Preparation on thermoplastic surfaces

Like any substrate the key to a good finish is the cleaning and surface preparation, with thermoplastic media like Corian, Staron and similar solid surface materials, the techniques in finishing to achieve an appealing result are time consuming and rely on several processes and stages to achieve optimum results.
