Painting & Finishing

Enclosures and front panels finished in your corporate colors

Our in-house facilities include a large powder paint line and a wet paint cubicle.

Optional Stocked Powder Paints (Listed below)

We keep a large selection powder paints in RAL and Pantone colors in stock. There is no additional charge, or minimum order quantity, for painting our standard enclosures in one of our stocked paints. Simply select your desired color or color combination from the list below.

Note: color images are provided as a guide only. Please refer to the exact RAL or Pantone references before finalizing your color choice.

Custom Colors

We can also supply enclosures, front panels and custom metalwork painted in your desired paint colour or special finish. The typical minimum order quantity for special colour enclosures and front panels is 10 to 25 units, depending upon the color required.

We generally work with RAL colors, but can match other colors on demand. Talk to our sales team if you need a specific color or finish.

M0000500 Matt Anodized

M0000500

Matt Anodized

This matt anodized finish is standard on all of our front panels. It is optional on rear panels and other custom components made to order.

Because of unavoidable small marks created during our CNC punching and forming processes, we do not recommend anodizing enclosure covers, side panels, top and bases. (These marks are not visible when the items are painted).

The Process

Anodizing is an electrolytic passivation process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts. The process is called anodizing because the part to be treated forms the anode electrode of an electrolytic cell.

M0000501

Interlox 338

This protective coating is standard on the case section of our METTEC 19" rack cases. It is suitable for internal components and housings fitted in racks and cabinets where the aesthetics of the finish is not important. As a result, we do not recommended it for desktop and portable enclosures.

The Process

Interlox® 338 produces a trivalent chromium conversion coating on both wrought and cast aluminum alloy surfaces. This coating is designed to be an effective corrosion resistant replacement for conventional hexavalent chromates.

Pretreatment

SURFACE TREATMENT BEFORE PAINTING

We put all aluminum and mild steel (CR4) components through a pretreatment process prior to painting. The pretreatment removes oils, greases and other agents used during manufacturing, and converts the metal surface to a non-metallic layer. This significantly improves the application, adhesion and surface finish of the paint.

Notes. Unfinished internal parts of our enclosures also go through this proces. The process gives the material a brown/gold surface coloration which is normal. Panels which are going to be anodized do not go through this process.

The Pretreatment Process Sequence:

  • Tank 1 - Gardoclean® alkali cleaner + Gardobond® A 4913 lightweight amorphous iron phosphate pretreatment
  • Tank 2 - Water rinse
  • Tank 3 - Gardolene® D6870 Chromium-free post pretreatment rinse
  • Drying oven - 150°C, 15 minutes
  • Ready for painting

Zinc & Clear Passivate

ANTI-CORROSION TREATMENT FOR CR4 MILD STEEL PARTS

Zinc plating in general can be broken into two primary steps. The first step is to add the zinc plating, through the use of electrical current. The second step is to treat the plated metal with a chemical passivate which adds color. These solutions are referred to as chromates (hex chrome) or passivates (tri chrome). To create a clear finish, a clear passivate is used. These passivates leave the metal with a natural color. In other words, the metal will have the silver color of zinc, often also including slight iridescence which can range from blue to yellow to pink.

Advantages of Clear Zinc Plating

Zinc plating with clear passivation gives all the same advantages of any other zinc plating, particularly the addition of considerable corrosion resistance. It also offers some benefits in terms of strength and abrasion resistance.
