Painting & Finishing
Consistent Finishes — Every Time
Powder coating, wet painting and metal finishing have been specialties at Midwest Metal Products for more than 50 years — and we put that pride in workmanship into every product that leaves our facility.
Not sure which finishing to go with? We have broken out the benefits and drawbacks of each finishing type.
Finishing process in which coating is applied to a surface is free floating.
Benefits of powder coating:
- Yields thick, hard finish that is tougher than traditional paints.
- Electrostatic stage greatly increases the efficiency and productivity of coating by nearly 95%, less paint is wasted and the metal object is fully coated. Powder coating has a one coat finish.
- It creates an even flat surface, the powder is sprayed and heated without drips or application traces.
- The thick finish it produces can be a drawback depending on your needs.
- Can be expensive for smaller jobs. Powder coating requires spray materials, electrostatic booth and an oven.
Wet Painting and Plating:
The traditional process of applying a liquid paint to a metal product for finishing.
Benefits of wet paint and plating:
- Ideal for products which cannot be heated for powder coating, powder coating requires an oven while wet paint finishing does not.
- Wet paint has a wider color selection, so if you have a custom color job wet paint is probably the way to go.
- Produces a thinner finish than powder coating.
- It is an economic finishing process.
- Not as durable as powder coating.
- Can require multiple finishes to get an even, perfect finish.
So what is it that sets MMP apart from other vendors? The math is simple:
- Eight thousand square feet of dedicated production space
- Five-stage pretreatment lines
- Automatic conveyors

It all adds up to consistent finishes on each and every part — every order, every time
