Enclosure finishes provide a durable and attractive coating that protects a product and helps it function at its best. Need an enclosure that can take on high temperatures? Avoid corrosion?

An enclosure engineer can help you determine which of following four enclosure finishes is best suited for your product’s needs.

Paint

Water-based paints are attractive and allow OEMs to utilize a specific color scheme. PMS and RAL colors can be matched, and specific textures can be achieved with this type of finish.

A powder coating provides a heavy-duty, attractive finish for products with metal parts. Black wrinkle powder comes as standard, but other colors are available.

Vinyl-Laminated Metals

Vinyl-coated metal is a value-added product in which vinyl film is bonded to the surface of a metal sheet (usually cold rolled, galvanized or aluminum). Metal finishes can help protect your metal enclosure and inhibit oxidation and conductivity. They come in various clear or colored finishes. Vinyl-laminated metal typically expedites production turnaround compared to pre-painted products. For instance, it eliminates inplant printing, frees up plant space and reduces costs such as labor, capital equipment, energy, materials, maintenance, environmental compliance and insurance. It is also less expensive to produce smaller quantities (compared to pre-painted products).
