Painting + Plating Services

Along with our refurbishing your telephone, we also provide painting, powder coating and plating services in a variety of colours and finishes.

Powder Coating

The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form. There are hundreds of colours to choose from, but mainly customers choose semi-gloss black. This closely resembles the original finish of most telephones.

Polane Painting

Polyurethane Enamel is a two component, low gloss coating providing superior appearance and durability. This is the same paint the telephone companies used when refurbishing used telephones. Prices may vary depending on the ammount of prep work needed for your telephone. This is not so much an issue with metal phones, but sanding out dents and scraces may take longer than usual. You may also do your own prep work for the phones if you wish.

Metal plating provides many benefits to products made from metal and other materials. Plating is a manufacturing process in which a thin layer of metal coats a substrate. We can do several different types of plating including 24k gold, nickel, chrome, brass and copper. It doesnt matter if the original plating is pitted or peeling off, our platers do wonders at stripping the old stuff off. Prices vary widely with plating, please contact us for a quote.

Please note: There are no guarantees as to how the finish will turn out. Oldphoneworks will not take resposability for items that did
not meet your satisfactory needs.
