Base Metal Finishes
All of our badges are cnc-machined out of solid T-6061 billet aluminum. The metal surface can be processed using a variety of methods to create very different looks, depending on what your taste is.. You can see a few of our standard metal finishes below.
We use 2-stage automotive paint inside our badges recessed cavities, this includes a base color and protective clear top-coat. We offer the standard colors depicted below and can have custom or OEM colors mixed for an additional fee.
Custom Design Process
Our custom ordered badges typically go through a design process that ensures your badges turn out exactly the way you want. Below are the basic steps.
Our designers use your ideas, drawings and images to create your design concept
Your concept illustration is used as the basis for a 3-D computer model, necessary for the production of a Billet Badge. Once created, an isometric rendering of the model is sent for your review and final approval before physical production begins.
Your 3-D model is programmed into an automated CNC machine. The machine robotically mills away all of the excess material from a solid piece of high grade billet aluminum until your badge is all that remains. The part is then ready for finishing.
After milling, your badge is hand finished to give it just the look you’re after. This includes scuffing, bead-blasting, polishing, painting and more. It is then given a layer of 3M-VHB (Very High Bond) adhesive backing so it can be installed easily and effectivley.
We offer an variety of OEM and universal sized blank badges that can be customized with your text, logo or graphic and finishes.
