Munitions require very tight tolerances for the surface coating, whether it be plating, anodizing or painting. These coatings serve a variety of functions such as: bonding surfaces, corrosion protection, oblation characteristics, color coding and wear resistance. The coatings are often critical to the function and performance of the munitions. Paramount Metal Finishing are specialists in customized lines for tight tolerance anodizing, plating and painting in high production.

Paramount Metal Finishing has earned the reputation of having extensive knowledge of finishing munitions.
