About Painting & Shielding
While alternatives exist, some cosmetics are not achievable during the molding process. For those variables, top coat painting and shielding serve as an answer. These processes apply different materials to enhance texture, security, and color (to name a few) to provide a finished product for the customer. While these are not absolutely necessary for every product, several companies in highly regulated industries require such processes. For example, shielding a pacemaker’s inside housing could mean the difference between it functioning correctly or having severe consequences. For others outside of the medical industry, placing a logo or another cosmetic effect on a finished product could augment the product’s look and usability. Whether it’s marking a button or indicating where a cable goes, post production can complement most devices and assemblies.
Though using different materials like film, paint, powdered plastics, or metallic vapors, Seaway has many ways to finish products. Depending on the design’s specifications and expected end results, engineers will assist in selecting the right finishes for the right use. A medical device may not require a textured finish like a product made for the defense sector, and knowing makes the difference.
