Plating and Anodizing

The common requests for plating the products we manufacture usually involve zinc plated and clear, yellow and silver.

You may already know what finish your project needs. Perhaps a matte powder coating of a steel structure, a brass fitting with grained detail or a slick mirror polish of a stainless profile. Each finish will offer different protection and appearance. To discuss the options, simply contact our team.

Galvanising (or galvanizing) is a process that prevents steel from corroding, as it produces a protective coating where the zinc is bonded metallurgically to the steel.

For items receiving a galvanised part, our engineers will ensure the highest standard to promote the optimum finish. Your material might require sandblasting or shot blasting as well as galvanising, which dramatically enhances the final results. If you’d like to learn more about your options, our team will be happy to discuss.

Graining and Textures

If it’s possible, we’ve dealt with it and know what works well from large staircase panels to the smallest of interior decoration accents.

Whether it’s an antique finish, a brushed metal, satinscratched, hammered and heat treated surface or perfectly polished product that you need, your preferred material might require it’s own treatment to achieve the results.

To give your product a cut above the rest, why not add a hand-grained finish to make finer details really stand out? Our experienced team can advise the best options, if you’re not familiar with how metal behaves.

Product Identification

We’ve invested in a stronghold of laser etching and metal engraving equipment that offers pristine results.

Our in-house engraving capabilities allow products to be individually marked with great control and a fast turnaround. Complex builds or multiple part projects may need temporary or permanent marking solutions, which are not uncommon for Freshlook to process.

For example, you may need detachable tags or metal barcodes. For permanent product identification the use of stamping, weld beads or deep stencil marking might be required.

Powder Coating

Set your product apart from the rest with Freshlook Engineering. Whatever the material and purpose, our tailored attention can assist with creating the best solution.

Our powder coating service has been extremely popular with our clients as we have control of the final paint finish. The ability to radically enhance appearance and provide protection, powder-coating has become extremely popular for providing a durable, attractive finish. Contact our sales team for more information about the powder-coating possibilities.
