 >> DAD Finishing Descriptions & Cost Information <<

  • A = Aesthetic – This finish is not sanitary and this material is a standard mill finish. It is cold rolled, annealed and descaled. Designated surface will have a consistent straight grain. Light scratches, minor grain misdirection, and discontinuity in the finish at and around welds are acceptable. Minor pits (UN-CLUSTERED) are acceptable.

  • S = Sanitary – This finish will not have any pits, scratches or imperfections. This is used frequently in pharmaceutical or food equipment industries

    • NOTE: All sanitary (S) metal finish options assume the 'Ground Weld (Sanitary)' weld finish option​

  • Metal Finish: The higher the RA value, the lower the cost. Below is a list in order of least expensive to most expensive

    • 2D, 2B, 4B, and Bead Blast are the least expensive finishes

    • 4A and 4S are the middle priced finish

    • 8A, 8S are the most expensive polished finishes

  • Weld Finish: Non-Ground Welds are always less expensive than Ground Welds

  • Painting

    • Powder Coating is less expensive than Wet Painting

    • The painting and powder coating prices depend on the size of your part and quantity needed

    • There will be set-up charge added to each order (in addition to the piece price) for paint set-up
