Patina

A patina is a type of surface coating used on any bare metal surface that is created by a chemical reaction. It’s different from other applied coatings, such as powder coating and painting because it is caused by a reacting solution with the surface of the metal. Metals will react with the moist air on their own at a slow pace; however, we can mimic this long-term effect with our specialty finish services.

Powder Coating

This is the process of coating metal with a plastic finish that’s applied to the surface in a powder form. It’s baked to a fluid state, so it bonds to the metal service. This finish is environmentally friendly and more durable than some of the other options available. 

Polishing

Metal polishing and buffing are both finishing processes that help to smooth out a piece’s surface using some abrasive material and a leather strop or work wheel. With polishing, you are using a work wheel that has an abrasive glued to the surface and buffing will use a loose abrasive that’s applied to the work wheel. Metal polishing and buffing are both finishing processes that help to smooth out a piece’s surface using some abrasive material and a leather strop or work wheel.
