NEW COLORS & FINISHES!!!

All of the aluminum products we sell can either be powder coated with finishes using the charts below, anodized, or covered with metal cladding. You can choose a finish from the following industry standard charts, or furnish us with a color sample to create a custom coated finish unique to your project. Also available are various different metal finishes.

What is powder coating? Powder Coating is a spray painting process that utilizes a very fine dry plastic powder paint material. A fine mist of powder paint is shot from a specialized spray gun. As the powder leaves the front of the spray gun, it is charged with static electricity which attracts the powder paint to the part being coated. Once this process is completed, the coated part is then placed in an oven and baked to 400 degrees for a prescribed amount of time. The heating process melts the paint powder causing it to flow in to an attractive durable finish. Powder coating is used in countless industries for many different applications.

What is anodizing? Anodizing is an electrochemical process that forms a protective aluminum-oxide coating many times thicker than the protective film formed as a by-product of extrusion. The anodized finish is extremely hard, very durable, and resistant to corrosion and wear. Anodized surfaces are recommended for high traffic areas such as doors, entrance ways and storefronts.

What is cladding? Cladding is sheet metal that is bent to certain specifications to "clad" or cover another item. Sometimes known as "brake metal," cladding is typically used to finish surfaces that would otherwise be too expensive, or impossible to achieve in a particular finish. Often cladding is powder coated or finished in mirrored or brushed stainless steel. API does custom break metal or cladding. Call or email us your specifications for a price quote.
