Colorful Textured Coatings
I have seen some metal components coated with colorful textured coatings and would be grateful if you could kindly let me know what processes (electroplating or powder coating?) are used to produce the coloured texture and pattern. I am also interested in equipment, processes, and any info/resource materials you can provide concerning the colourful textured coatings.
Thank you for your kind attention.Dr Jianhai Qiu

Hi, Dr. Qiu. I would suspect that these are textured powder coatings. Electroplated coatings tend to not be colorful, but only of metallic color (silver / copper /gold).
