Aluminium enclosures can be custom painted with eight colours and finishes

Custom paint colours for Metcase’s aluminium electronic enclosures now include eight new colour options. They are available at no extra cost, confirmed Metcase.

The company has added eight new shades to its range of always-in-stock paints. These additions bring the total number of colours available to 37, plus anodising, passivate, pre-treatment and anti-corrosion finishes.

The new paint colours are violet blue (RAL 5000), cobalt blue (RAL 5013), pigeon blue (RAL 5014), yellow (Pantone 1235C), medium dark orange (Pantone 159C), salmon orange (Pantone 2027C), teal (Pantone 2238C) and anthracite (Pantone 432C).

Metcase can supply its 19 inch enclosures and desktop or portable instrument enclosures in any specified RAL or Pantone colour.

Metcase’s in-house facilities include a large powder paint line and a wet paint cubicle. Staff can supply enclosures and front panels in any custom colour or special finish. There is usually a minimum order of 10 to 25 units but this does not apply to always-in-stock colours.

Finishes include tough powder polyester painting, chip-resistant wet painting, nickel-loaded EMC shielding lacquers for plastic parts, blemish-free linishing, anodising, Iridite NCP (conductive/anti-corrosion), plus zinc and clear passivate of CR4 steel panels.

Other customisation services include bespoke sizes, custom front panels, CNC machining, fixings and inserts, and photo-quality digital printing of graphics, legends and logos.
