STEEL FINISH OPTIONS
We have various steel finish options to choose from, all final coated with an extremely durable oven-baked powder-coat, with no upkeep.
Powder-coating allows us to achieve just about any color in a matte, satin or glossy sheen. It is a free-flowing dry powder that is applied electrostatically, then cured at ~390°F to allow it to form a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. It also contains no solvents, so it emits little-to-no VOC. Mainly used for coating auto/bike parts and outdoor furniture which require ultra durable / water resistant finishes. We arrange to have the legs professionally powder coated by a pro shop in our neighborhood, who charge accordingly for different dimensions.
01: CLEAR POWDER-COAT
This will preserve the natural color of the steel, but protect it from staining and rusting. The welds are seamlessly blended, then sanded to a 'brushed finish'. The steel will appear natural and bright.
02: COLOR POWDER-COAT
Colors are limitless, but typically our clients prefer a simple black powder coat in a matte or satin sheen.
03: ‘BLACK MAGIC PATINA’ + CLEAR POWDER-COAT
A rich patina is applied to the bare steel with scotch-brite pads to give off a more industrial look, bringing the color of the legs to a deeper/darker grey with an added hand-rubbed "textured" appearance while remaining completely smooth to the touch. We apply multiple coats until the desired color is reached, followed by water to neutralize the chemical reaction. This process combines the patina and clear powder coat for maintenance-free durability.
