Introduction

Painting involves spraying a layer of paint onto the surface of the part. Colors can be matched to a Pantone color number of the customer's choosing, while finishes range from matte to gloss to metallic.
Painting the surface of a part improves its aesthetic appearance and can provide brand recognition to consumers. In addition, painting can have a protective effect on parts. For example, surface painting is an effective method to protect metal from oxidation and corrosion.
