Our customer calls this color Pacifica Grey and we supply a number of other sizes for both the wood screw and the washer in this matching color. All the parts are supplied on revolving annual blanket purchase order basis. While this customer uses the countersunk washers with the flat head screws, others use a modified truss head screw for the same application.

These custom painted sheet metal screws are just one example out of hundreds of different fasteners we supply our existing customer base with matching paint or sand blast finish to the mating assembly component. Typically the customer provides us a sample of this mating component for color matching purposes and then we supply samples of screws with the matching formula. The customer also often specifically instructs us to the sheen preferred - matte, flat, semi-glossy, etc. Once the customer approves our provided matching samples we are off to the races to get the full volume painted.
