A brushed finish is attained by applying abrasive material to a surface of a substrate (usually metal) to produce a surface texture. Different motions and abrasive particle sizes make various depths and patterns that reflect light.
A combination finish is usually created with the use of more than one type of finish (and process). This type of finish is used to attain a very unique surface and produces outstanding results.
Acid Etching is a process of corroding a substrate in a controlled manner. Attaining a pattern or image
on the substrate involves the application of a resistant coating (reversed) prior to adding the acid.
Standard Etching Patterns
Painting a substrate is achieved with the application of one or more resin based chemicals. Painting may seem a simple as buttering toast, but painting a substrate takes skilled technicians who can make almost any surface brilliant.
Patina is a word to describe the finish exhibited by the oxidation of certain metals (usually bronze, brass or copper). Natural patination takes years, but we are capable of achieving favourable antiquing results in hours.
Powder coating is a method of electrostatically applying paint as a free-flowing, dry powder without using solvents. The coating is then cured under heat for a rock hard finish.
