Never Blue's Finish Options

Raw Unfinished Steel

This finish leaves all finalizing options up to the customer; Never Blue will knock any slag off from CNC cuts, but any surface scratches, protective pickled coating, rust, etc., will not be addressed, and the prices will reflect the customer choosing to finish the item his or herself. 


Professional, Custom, and Industrial Coating Options

Never Blue Metalworks offers many items with custom, professional and industrial finishes, from a wet spray post primer to a powder coated finishes, which are a baked-on, permanent finish.  We utilize the services of two industrial and commercial coating services: 1) C&M Powdercoat--Custom and Industrial Coatings in Piedmont, SC; 2) PCE/IF Armoring in Forest City, NC.


In order to ensure a great paint job, Never Blue takes every step to prep each piece before it heads off to powder coating, where we work with another local business to provide a great product with a great finish at a great price.  Please be aware that some colors are limited, sometimes dependent upon piece, so please take note when ordering as to the finish options.  If a custom or different color or application coating option is desired, Never Blue will coordinate with C&M Powdercoat and/or PCE/IF Armoring, which are responsible for all coating work and warrantying.    


C&M Powdercoat

Todd and Tammy are our primary coating service, offering custom and industrial coatings by a local, American owned business. We use them for powdercoat finishes, and they offer "high temp" ceramic finishing too.  C&M allows our customers to choose from a number of traditional color options, but they are not limited to just these colors, so if you need a custom color, custom paint application, etc., they can take care of it, so please contact us, and we'll coordinate with them.  We also encourage you call them for personal work; C&M powdercoats for an individual's needs to commercial ones: small items, wheels, railings, signage and sculpture work.

PCE/IF Armoring

Although these folks are almost 2 hours from us, John and Adam take care of many oversized projects and pieces that need a wet coating.  They've done hundreds of feet of both railing and commercial stands for us.     

Brushed Steel Clean with Spray Can Clear Coat

Never Blue Metalworks cleans the item by hand with a wire brush wheel on a grinder, working to clean up weld marks from construction; however, some areas cannot be reached due to a grinding wheel’s limitations, and Never Blue Metalworks has artistic control on leaving any original patina, paint, etc., before placing a spray can, enamel-clearcoat finish on the item, and the customer acknowledges that this elected type of finish is neither permanent nor guarantees any rusting, especially if the item purchased is placed outside.   

Rust, rust, moreRust

This choice means what it says: the item itself and/or the components that comprises it will be rusty, aged, painted, etc.—in their as-close-to-original-picked state.  Never Blue Metalworks will do what it takes to create the item desired, leaving the finish as-is upon completion, so no coatings will be applied, which allows the item to continue rusting.  Please note some items will be rustier than others.
