Exterior Coatings and Finishes

A finish for cookware can be any material which, when applied, changes the basic appearance and/or function of that cookware from its natural surface.

The finish or decoration may be applied through the use of either organic or inorganic materials. It may be fused on under high heat, spray applied and bake dried plated over metal, applied by an electrolytic (anodized) method, or, in some cases silk screened or an applied decal, as in the case of a decoration.

The type of finish or decoration has certain advantages in each instance, and, generally, its application will be made where factors of use, durability, heat, abrasion, design and appearance or other requirements will make one finish more suitable than another. The finishes discussed below are those applied as a coating, usually applied via spray and bake dried.
