This article provides guidelines about general design principles for different types of surface-finishing processes, such as cleaning, organic coatings, and inorganic coatings applied by a variety of techniques. It discusses various factors that influence the selection of surface-finishing processes. These include fabrication processes, size, weight, functional requirements, and design features. The article discusses the design as an integral part of manufacturing. It contains tables that summarize design limitations for selected surface-preparation, organic finishing, and inorganic finishing processes.
