Material Finishes

Here you'll find information relating to the different types of metal finishes, such as galvanising, anodising, and more.


Galvanisation is the process of coating by which zinc is coated over metal to protect it from corrosion. The idea is quite simple, coating an ordinarily very corrosive metal such as steel with another metal that is less corrosive. To understand why this works requires us to build an understanding of why mteals corrode in the first place.
