Industrial Metal Coatings | Defence


The defence industry has stringent requirements for equipment and component performance.  We work with a range of leading coating partners to deliver processes, services, and industrial metal coatings that enhance performance and extend the life of components. The selection of the appropriate coating can improve part life and reduce maintenance costs.


Strong & Durable

As one of the most vital industries worldwide, equipment and components belonging to the defence industry need to be strong, durable and ready to withstand a wide variety of conditions – similar to those of the airspace industry. Here at Pym and Wildsmith, leading providers of industrial metal coatings, we are proud to be able to offer a series of metal coatings strategically designed to offer long-lasting protection that will not let you down.


What are metal coatings?

Metal coatings are coatings that are applied to metal in order to protect the metal and reduce wear and tear. An unprotected metal will rust and corrode due to environmental exposure. By coating the metal, an extra layer of protection is provided.

Industrial metal coatings are used as a cost-efficient solution to protect the metal from deterioration, to provide durability and extend life span with minimum need for maintenance.


High Quality & Value

We have a wide range of industrial metal coating services at Pym and Wildsmith including e-coating, shot blasting, powder coating, metal spraying and many more – all of which can be tailored specifically to the requirements of your project. Our metal finishing solutions are rich in quality and value, providing your project with a hard-wearing finish that stands the test of time.




When it comes to both the defence and aerospace industries, it is vital that the equipment and components being used are all safety-assured. Every element needs to be able to survive varying conditions and environments and needs to maintain a reliable piece of equipment that can provide the relevant support to its users. Here at Pym and Wildsmith, our metal coatings can provide resilient, heavy-duty finishes that not only enhance the performance of the object but also provide long-lasting protection time and time again.
