Panel Processing has more paint line capacity than any other fabricator. Our lines run an environmentally friendly water-based baked-on enamel finish called Eco-Finish™. Eco-Finish is a water based or UV fill coat that can be applied to hardboard, HDF, MDF and particleboard. Eco-Finish, the scratch and mar resistant UV top coat, will give the finished product many of the performance characteristics of roll melamine in vertical applications.
Panel Processing can match “all the colors of the rainbow” for your project. PPI Coatings, our in-house paint company, will match your special color. To meet continually shorter lead times, we established our internal paint manufacturing capacity in 1988, and we now offer the best lead times in the industry, with total quality assurance for custom paint matches. This guarantees that the paint will be ready to meet your lead-time requirements. This is ideal for custom application where standard melamine colors limit your design palette.
Custom color-matched paint does not require huge minimums, like low pressure laminate. The color palette is nearly unlimited, unlike stock colors from melamine and laminate manufacturers. PPI Coatings offers toll manufacturing, making available custom processing of waterborne coatings, from grinds to blends. Color matching is done by computer, ensuring an accurate and repeatable match. You have our assurance of quick turn-around and complete confidentiality.
Besides matching all the colors of the rainbow, our coatings capabilities allow us to custom formulate UV coating for any applications such as mar and graffiti resistant top coats for the finished product.
Metallic Paint Finishes
Metallic paint finishes add sizzle to your project without breaking your budget.
Add some shine to your project! Metallic coatings are available in bronze, silver, titanium and nickel. Custom metallic colors are generally produced in darker colors, purple and blue in particular. These coatings are available on various hardboard substrates; pegboard, solid panels, slatwall or slot panels to name a few. Metallics can be top-coated with a UV cured clear coating, enhancing the metallic appearance and resisting scratching.
Metallic paint finishes can add a level of sophistication to displays for batteries, tools, cosmetics and many other products where differentiation is critical in the retail environment.
