Two-Tone Application for Architectural Metal Finishing

About Two-Tone Architectural Metal Finishing

The idea behind two-tone architectural metal finishing application is simple. Many of our customers at Certified Enameling, Inc. ask if we can apply two different colors of metal finishing or to an architectural panel or other type of item, and the answer to this question is usually, "Yes." The execution of two-tone metal finishing, however, is not simple. The procedure requires careful planning and preparation to ensure that the final product looks just right, as well as to avoid complications that could require a recoat or other types of corrections.

After applying the first coat of paint or other type of coating, we apply masking to cover that surface and protect it prior to applying the second coat. It is vital to ensure that the masking is effective in preserving the initial coat and protecting it from bleeding or spray from the subsequent coat. Beyond the challenges involved in the actual coating process, it is also necessary to properly prepare the project, selecting the right type of coating product to match the metal surface and to ensure that both coats are compatible with one another. For example, the coats must have the same physical properties, so that the baking of the second coat does not cause the first coat to chip, peal or become discolored.

Two-tone applications can give an architectural metal finishing a far more striking and visually appealing look and can entirely change the appearance of a building. They are available both for internal and external installations and can be used for extrusion or sheet metal features. When our customers ask for two-tone paint, we work with them to choose the right color combinations and explore all their options for coating products.

    I never write letters, but today I felt compelled. Recently, I have been working on the project from hell. Nothing went right. The land had issues, the city had issues, the client couldn't make up their mind on anything, my staff was stretched thin, we were over budget, etc... I can honestly say that the ONLY thing that met and exceeded expectations was the part of the work that was done by Certified Enameling. Your staff was great, the job was done earlier than I expected, and the cost was to the penny what you quoted. Now if we can just get everybody else on par with you guys, life will be good. Thanks Glenn and Adrian. You guys are excellent!

    So far the initial reactions from our client and designer are all good! Thanks for all of your efforts in helping us make this a successful project; I know it has been an effort on everyone’s part. Thank goodness we assembled a good team of vendors to assist us with this project. So we only have a few more panels to put through the process so we will bear down a little longer.


    I want to take a moment to truly thank Glenn, Adrian, Scott and all the staff at Certified Enameling. I've been in the property development business for 30 years and I don't think I can ever remember dealing with a company that gets the job done like these guys do. The quality in which they deliver their service is truly appreciated. When they say the job is gonna be done in 2 days, they mean it, consistently. If all of my vendors provided products and services like the guys at Certified, I would never miss a deadline. I can't thank them enough!

    Hi Glenn, and the entire team at Certified Enameling. This week marks the completion of our 4,000 panel manufacturing run for this high profile project. It’s been a hectic 3 months to say the least. I just want to compliment the manner in which Certified Enameling stepped up to the plate, and did whatever was required to keep CPS, and ultimately our customer on schedule for this project. You went above and beyond the call of duty, and we sincerely appreciate your efforts. I am confident that no other firm, or team of firms in Southern California could have accomplished what we just accomplished in such a short time frame. Thank you for being such a strong business partner, and helping CPS achieve our goals.


    I've been wondering for years why when I get a metal finishing job done with another company it takes so much longer than with Certified Enameling? I'm talking double to triple the amount of time. I don't know if it's their process, their staff or their experience. The funny thing is that their work product is equal to, if not downright superior to the competition. Recently I decided, I really don't care how they do it, I'm just not going anywhere else anymore. You guys define expertise in every sense of the word and have earned my business for life. One less thing to worry about. Thanks Certified Enameling.
