Metal finishing processes clean or apply a thin substrate to a metal object’s surface to improve its durability and appearance. There are a variety of metal finishing techniques and knowing how they are used will help you select the one right for your requirements. Let’s look at the different metal finishing applications.

Metal Finishing

The metal finishing process removes imperfections from metal surfaces and restore them to their original sheen. Techniques can include glass beads, walnut shells, and ceramic media finished surfaces. These metal finishing techniques can be applied to aluminum, steel, and stainless-steel equipment.


Painting applications include epoxy and fusion bonded epoxies, urethane, zinc, specialty coatings and linings, and rustproofing. These paint finishes can be used for a wide range of parts and equipment, including casting, tanks, metal parts, pipe and fittings, and metal fabrications.

Powder Coating

Powder coating is a high-quality, protective, and decorative coating can be applied on metals for various industrial, commercial, and residential projects. A high-quality supplier should have a full line of powder coating colors and equipment, such as an oven, chemical pre-treatment, and solvent paint systems.


For this metal surface finishing technique, recyclable steel grit and shot facilities are used to blast steel casting, piping and metal fabrications, raw parts, and other equipment. It is suitable for objects that don’t require a glossy texture or appearance but still need to be clean.
