Metal finishes we offer

Powder Coating

Powder coating is a metal finishing solution used to provide a hard, protective finish that is highly resistant to scratches, chipping, abrasion, chemicals and corrosion. Learn more about powder coating.

Shot Blasting

Shot blasting is the process of abrading the surface of metal to clean and prime surfaces for subsequent treatment, such as painting or powder coating. Get more information about shot blasting.

Thermal Spray Painting

A thermal spray paint finish will extend the life of your metal components as it protects from corrosion, oxidation, fatigue and high temperatures. Find out more about thermal spray painting.

Wet Spray Painting

Wet spray painting provides an attractive and durable coating to your metal components in a range of different wet paint finishes, from industrial to marine. Read more about wet spray painting.


Typically used on aluminium, anodising is the process for producing thick oxide coatings which protects a metal surface from natural corrosion.


We can use elements, like Zinc and Cadmium, to coat your metal component which provides a thin layer of protection.
