E coating companies | Giving the best protection to your project

The industrial finishing industry is always expanding which means there are many different e coating companies available.

Here at Pym and Wildsmith, we are proud to be one of those companies, offering an e-coating UK service that can accommodate a wide range of clients and applications.

E coating is a growingly popular industrial finish due to its extensive list of benefits which it can offer our clients.

What is e-coating?

E-coating is a type of finish aimed at offering optimum protection for metal surface coatings and metal projects. A type of paint, E-coat offers projects an aesthetically pleasing finish alongside durable corrosive protection.

The e-coat painting system is great value for money as it offers two key aspects of a finish which many people are looking for – protection and aesthetics – combined within just one type of coating, saving money and time.

How does e-coating take place?

Although it is an advanced form of finishing, the actual e-coat painting system is an incredibly simple process which can be performed quickly while still achieving optimum results.

First, the item that needs to be painted is placed onto one of our special tracks which have been specifically designed to hold projects.

The item is then dipped into various tanks of pre-treatment solutions in order to clean the surface in preparation for the finish. Once the surfaces have been thoroughly cleaned, another tank is prepared with e-coat paint.

The project is then plunged into the tank until fully covered in the paint. Once dry, the e-coat provides corrosion resistance and optimum protection for up to twenty years.

Due to the low resistance of e-coat to UV rays, it is generally used as either a primer or a finish.


The benefits of the e-coating process

The E-coating process is a highly advanced process that is one of the most efficient and effective coating solutions on the market. The main benefits include:

  • Excellent corrosion protection
  • Superior edge coverage
  • Consistent and uniform coverage of paint
  • Single coat application with the option of second coat of powder coat to optimise performance
  • Compatible with other coating technologies
  • A quick process with a fast turnaround
