Aluminum Cylinder Finishes

Painted cylinders come in a variety of colors and involve a two-step process

  1. Color is applied using a spray on powder coat.
  2. The cylinders are baked to give them a high gloss finish.

Natural Finish

This is how the bare metal looks directly following its heat treatment. It is naturally steaked and smudged and considered ugly by some, but it is a few dollars less in price. It is a good choice for high-use applications like rental departments, schools and resorts.

Brushed No Coat (BNC)

The cylinder is spun underneath a belt sander giving it a shiny “brushed” finish

Shot Blast

The bare metal cylinder is “bead blasted” for texture and results in a uniform dark gray finish
