Image Name (32) Applicable Materials Colors Description
Spray painting - High gloss paint Spray painting - High gloss paint Aluminum, Titanium, Plastics
Applicable to all pantone colors-High gloss
Spray painting: Using spray guns with air pressure to disperse into uniform and fine droplets and apply the painting to the surface of the object.
Electropolished (Ra0.8µm, 32µin) Electropolished (Ra0.8µm, 32µin) Metals
Applicable to all pantone colors
An electrochemical process cleans steel parts to reduce corrosion and improve appearance, by making the metal brighter.
Bead Blast Bead Blast Metals, Plastics
Applicable to all pantone colors
The part surface is left with a smooth, matte appearance.
Brushed Brushed Metals
Applicable to all pantone colors
Brushing is a surface treatment process in which abrasive belts are used to draw traces on the surface of a material, usually for aesthetic purposes.
Powder coat - Matt Powder coat - Matt Metals
Applicable to all pantone colors-Matt
This is a process where powdered paint is sprayed onto a part that is then baked in an oven.
Electrophoresis Electrophoresis Metals
Applicable to all pantone colors
Electrophoresis is the motion of dispersed particles relative to a fluid under the influence of a spatially uniform electric field.
Etching Etching Metals
Applicable to all pantone colors
Laser etching, also called laser engraving or laser marking, is used to create a visible mark on the surface of many substrates, including metal, plastic, stone and glass.
Smooth machining (Ra1.6µm, 63 µin) Smooth machining (Ra1.6µm, 63 µin) Metals, Plastics
Applicable to all pantone colors
A finishing CNC machining operation can be applied to the part to reduce its surface roughness.

Defining an A and a B side

Surface finishing often leaves aesthetic defects on your parts, such as hang marks for anodizing. Defining an A- and a B-side in your design will ensure that the most important areas of your part remain free of defects.

In this image you can see how you can define an A-side and a B-side in your technical drawing: A side: Indicates the most aesthetically important surface, typically the visible side of your product. B side: Indicates the side that is not aesthetically important, typically the side hidden from visibility after assembly.

Cosmetic Acceptability Criteria
All cosmetic parts produced by Justway follow our Cosmetic Acceptability Criteria:
Consistency requirements
Consistency requirements
Each part must be visually consistent across the same batch, meaning:
  • Same grit must be used across parts for sanding or brushing
  • Brush marks must be in the same direction**
  • Color must be consistent to the same pantone when parts are placed next to each other
  • Gloss units must be consistent across the batch
*** Manual brushing marks will be as unidirectional as possible. Please note that for rounded geometries, brushing marks may not be entirely unidirectional.*
Visual inspection conditions
Visual inspection conditions
The surface quality of every part must meet the following conditions:
  • Distance: 50cm ±10cm (19,7 in ± 3,9 in) with a 10/10 vision (or corrected)
  • Incidence angle: Approximately 45º in all directions
  • Lighting conditions: 500-1000 Lux, color 3300-5300 Kelvin (neutral white)
