Can you apply finishing services to specific areas of my part?

If you choose to add a finishing service (anodizing, plating, or powder coating) to parts, we will apply the finish to the entire part. We’re unable to finish specific areas or portions of parts, and not other areas. We cannot provide masking for areas of your part.

Please note; bending, countersinking, and tapping services are performed before finishing services.

Hardware is installed after anodizing and plating, but before powder coating.

Parts with both hardware and powder coating services will have the hardware capped/plugged before being powder coated.

Check out the individual guidelines pages for each service so you’ll know what to expect when you receive your parts!
