Colour Swatches

Stainless steel is either satin (brushed finish) or highly polished (like chrome). When laser etched the etching is always black. However if the panels are acid etched or rotary engraved then the engraving can be infilled with a primary paint colour. Disclaimer: Although every effort has been made to display the colour swatches shown as true, all monitors are not consistent in colour representation, the swatches therefore should be taken only as a guide!
