ARCHITECTURAL METAL FINISHING FAQS

  • Q:What Is Cenamelize?

    A:With more than 50 years of experience in the architectural metal finishing industry, Certified Enameling, Inc. has extensive knowledge of the science involved in developing and applying metal finishing products to different types of surfaces. Based on this understanding and background, we have developed a proprietary metal finishing product called Cenamelize that offers significant advantages over anodizing.

  • Q:Why Should I Choose Cenamelize?

    A:We use Cenamelize for many of the same applications that would normally call for anodizing. It is approximately the same cost as anodizing, but it offers several major advantages. For example, Cenamelize is far more durable and provides better and more consistent color stability, reparability and future color matching.

  • Q:What Colors Is Cenamelize Available In?

    A:Unlike anodizing, which offers only limited options for color selection, Cenamelize is available in virtually any color for which a pigment is available. Furthermore, we offer an in-house custom color-matching service that enables you to choose your color scheme without having to go anywhere else.

  • Q:Is Cenamelize Available in Textured Coatings?

    A: Cenamelize coating is not only available in a wide variety of different solid colors but also can be used in any of a number of different textured coatings. These include marble finish, granite, vein finish, stucco, and others.

  • Q:What Type of Architectural Metal Finishing Is Best for My Project?

    A: There is no panacea in the architectural finishing industry, but certain solutions are better than others based on the nature and requirements of the job. When you request a quote, we will take the time to review your project in detail, including the type of surface you are coating and the environmental conditions at the building site - e.g. sea spray, sunlight exposure, high wind, rain and snow - to determine which metal finishing will work best for you. Some of the common coating products we use include Kynar®, Cenamelize, epoxy, and polyurethane, among others.

  • Q:Do You Offer a Warranty?

    A: At Certified Enameling, Inc., we take great pride in the quality of our work and materials. As a reflection of this confidence, we offer a warranty up to 20 years on any texture coat that we install. You can expect your metal finishing to last significantly longer than the term of the warranty.

  • Q:What Value-Added Benefits Does Certified Enameling, Inc. Offer?

    A: We boast an incredible turnaround time. In an average period of only two or three days, we complete jobs that take other companies a full week or longer. We achieve this remarkable lead time without sacrificing quality by applying rigid standards of quality at every stage of the process. Furthermore, we offer packaging, casketing, labeling and even trucking under special arrangements.
