Top-Tier Metallurgical Company Serving New England

We are an ISO 9001:2015 Registered Corporation specializing in salt bath heat treating, an austenitizing process utilizing high temperature molten salts. We control the bath temperature with solid state controllers, optical measuring devices, and thermocouples to deliver the specific metallurgical properties you require.

We provide leading-edge heat-treating solutions for nearly every industry sector.

Our technologically advanced solutions are applied with precision for the heat-treatment of High-Speed Steel (HSS) and alloy tool steels in our state-of-the-art facility in Providence, Rhode Island.

We are the only Heat Treater in New England specializing in FNC or Salt Bath Ferritic Nitrocarburizing.

FNC is a suitable process for parts that need enhanced corrosion resistance, or that will experience higher levels of sliding wear, such as firearms, cages for bearings and tools.

Finished products as diverse as the cutter shown above on the left, and the bolt carrier on the right, benefit from being FNC processed.

Our Quality Policy

When your parts are heat treated by MSI, in salt, they are always processed at the proper temperature, for the proper amount of time. If vacuum furnace heat treated, they could be combined with other customers’ work at a compromised temperature and/or for a compromised length of time.
