Finishing services are worth investing in if you are looking to add a final touch to your project as they can optimise the aesthetics, performances, and protection of your components. For pieces of material that require corrosion protection alongside a performance-enhancing finish, an e-coating UK service could be a great solution. Here at Pym and Wildsmith, with over forty years of experience under our belts as e-coat suppliers, we have the skills, tools, and capacity to accommodate many different components that require e coating – and at incredibly competitive prices.

E coating explained

E-coating is a type of paint finish that is applied to components that require additional protection against specific substances. The process starts by making sure all of the surfaces due to be painted are completely prepared for the coating. E-coat paint offers excellent performance results, however in order for the finish to be successful and for it to be able to cover and coat the parts thoroughly, all surfaces need to be stripped of any dirt or previous finishes. At Pym and Wildsmith we have a series of different preliminary treatments that your components may undergo if deemed necessary. Once the surface is cleaned and suitable for the paint, we will then submerge the component into a tank of e-coat paint. This method ensures optimal coverage of the component – including all the hard to reach areas such as bends and cavities. The component is then taken out of the paint to dry. Depending on the size of your project, your parts could be ready and fit-for-use within a few hours. We always aim to provide a fast turnaround for our services so that your business will be caused minimal disruption.

Why should you use e-coating?

E coating is by far one of the most efficient and effective protective surface coatings on the market. With the ability to offer 100% coverage and uniformity of coating thickness, the finish always offers product and process consistency. E coating is a fantastic solution for corrosion protection and can provide in excess of 1000 hours of salt spray resistance – making it perfect for outdoor projects. One coating of the paint will give you great performance, however, if you wish to optimise the performance even further, second coats of powder or liquid topcoat paint are also available; the finish is also compatible with other coating technologies. E-coating is used amongst a wide range of industries including the automotive industry, the coating can protect vehicles and their parts from corrosion and therefore make the paintwork last much longer. E-coating is perfect if you want to give your project the long-lasting durable and protective finish that it deserves and as one of the country’s most highly established e-coating companies, you can be sure that we’ll get the job done properly.
