Custom brown painted self drilling screws in 18-8 stainless steel material supplied to our long time customer at 10,000 pcs per release.  We typically stock these parts based on revolving 12 month blanket purchase order arrangements - pricing is locked in based on 100K pieces but parts are released on a monthly schedule based on our customer's seasonal need.  The sealant on the brown painted heads was set to flat sheen as our customer prefers to avoid glossier finishes.  Lead time for painted parts at these quantities is typically 3-4 weeks from the procurement of the plain version.

Custom Painted Sheet Metal Screws

Custom Painted Sheet Metal Screws

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.
