Finishes – Powder Coating & Ceramic Coating

Metal Finishing is the all encompassing term used to describe the coatings applied to a metal surface for the purposes of preservation and aesthetics. Metal finishing also happens to be our specialty. We work with aluminum, bronze, copper, titanium, steel (including stainless), galvanized, and e-coated metals.

Our process begins, with a thorough cleaning of the surface to ensure maximum adhesion. From there we mask off any surfaces that need to be left raw. Finally, we apply a finish that will stand the test of time. Most commonly this finish will either be a powder coating or a ceramic coating.

Powder Coating

Powder coating is similar in appearance to paint, only more durable. Unlike paint which sits on the surface of metal, powder coating is baked into the pours of the metal. The bond between the metal and the coating creates a finish that is resilient to moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet light, and other forms of fading and wear while still looking great. 

With over 10,000 powder coating colors, textures, metallics, fluorescents and glosses available, you will never have to settle for a color that isn’t right. Whether you want something bold and bright, textured, or basic, we can make your vision a reality.

Ceramic Coating

Ceramic Coating protects surfaces that reach elevated temperatures (up to 3,800° F: 2,000 Celsius). Outside of its aesthetic qualities, the primary benefits of ceramic coating is its ability to help the overall temperatures that metal surface will reach which reduces the effects of thermo-tumbling and thermo cycling.

  • Thermo-tumbling occurs most frequently at the bends of pipe where the metal is bare or the paint is thin, leaving spaces of uneven surface covering that results in heat leaks.
  • Thermo Cycling is the process of cycling through two extreme temperatures. Overtime, this action will cause metals to become brittle, which results in cracking and ultimately complete failure.
