I have a few small sheet metal flat springs made from 301 SS. In this case small means around 0.5 mm thick and about 25 mm longest dimension. I need the parts to have a black finish to reduce reflected light. These parts are going inside a device with light sensitive components. Abrasion resistance is also a concern. Can anyone suggest finishes that might work for this application?
