what kind of finish in edge trem

What kind of finish do manufacturers use on a tremolo..I know the chrome is chrome plated but what about black..Is it paint or powder coated?

I think it's a cheap paint "plating". cause it rubs off over time. Powder Coating is like bullet proof or some weird crap like that. Ibanez offered a powder coated trem on some models (don't ask me I'm sure someone else will know here though).
