Painting (and Priming)

Metal Finishings Limited offer a range of paint coatings, generally sprayed wet paints (solvent or water based).

Prior to painting, we can pre-treat parts to your specifications (common pretreatments are Alocrom 1200, Surtec 650V or unsealed chromic anodising), blast and/or apply an etch prime.

We can apply a wide range of paints, including epoxy (1 or 2 part) and polyurethane.

Commonly Applied Coatings



We can handle specified whole paint systems such as Def Stan 03-32.

Through our supply chain, we are able to source paints from companies including Trimite, Indestructible Paints, PPG PRC-DeSoto and Akzo. We have experience of paint on various substrates, including aluminium, steel, titanium, stainless steel, nickel super alloys (such as Inconel) and lead. Masking is available.

Dry film lubricants are also offered.


Our purpose built paint facility is designed with aerospace quality in mind. We can handle lengths of up to 3 metres in our spray-bake booth and bake up to 120°C, minimising the risk of any contamination. A high temperature oven is available for smaller parts with higher curing temperatures (e.g. for dry film lubricants) and this can operate up to 300°C with a very high degree of control and uniformity as required by aerospace specifications.
