When Chemistry commit to Mechanics
I.F.P srl takes its name from the activity itself (Isotropic Finishing Process), developed and driven by perfection at the Vighizzolo di Cantù plant, a small town in the province of Como.
The company was founded in 2000 almost as a bet, going all in from the beginning. It all started from a chemical-physical test on a particular component of an automobile’s engine, giving surprising results in both terms of aesthetics but especially rugosity.
From those results we launched ourselves in the isotropic finishing world, constructing an initial small plant to execute the process on an industrial scale. The very first specifics that we had to deal with were destined to Formula One cars, opening our way to the automotive and aerospace sectors.
Today I.F.P is equipped with 17 chemical-process machines, being able to process a large variety of components.
In the last years we have been developing a new plant and we are now able to offer also a Controlled Shot Blasting process to our customers.
Our company is now involved in the processing of Automotive, Oil & Gas and Aerospace specifics.
We are driven by perfection and persistence, delivering to our clients the best the market can offer.

The Isotropic Finishing Process maintains the original geometric shape of the components. The aim is to improve the surface’s technical characteristics and the useful life of the particular treated component. This process leads to a very low superficial rugosity and the most immediate result is an increased sliding capacity of the component’s surfaces, which also take on a typical specular/reflective final look.
In the engine parts specific case, the process drastically reduces frictional stresses at work therefore – automatically – generates less heat, decreases the probability of wear and/or breakage, increasing the duration not only of the single part but of the whole endothermic thruster.
