contract coatingBefore your company launches its products, they may first need coating. This might include primer in order to increase the surface tension. It may involve an adhesive that has reactivation potential so it can stick to other products. Whatever the case, it is important to work with a contract coating company. Here are the services that professionals offer:

Attention to detail

It is important that coating is precise, which means paying attention to every detail. A contract coating expert will make certain everything adheres according to your specifications. And if something requires fixing or has to reworked, they will take care of the issue quickly.


Contract coating professionals have years of experience in the industry. They will have the knowledge required to ensure your products are properly coated. In addition, they will be familiar with laws and regulations that could affect these products.


You know you have a great contractor if everything is easy. They have no problem following your instructions and guidelines or meeting deadlines. Your products come back to exactly as you specified. Your supplier should also be able to work on special projects or other things that may require a tight turnaround.

Out-of-the-box thinking

While some coating procedures have been in use for years, that does not mean improvement isn’t possible. A good contracting company will not just use the same processes as in the past. They will come up with new and different solutions ideal for your specific products.

Types of Coating

As you’ve searched for the best contract coater, you’ve likely found a wide variety of different industrial protective coating applications. Similarly, there are different application methods for some of the same coating solutions. Below, we’ve listed some of the different types of coating methods.

Dip Coating

Generally, very cost effective, dip coating is automatic or manual. We submerge a product in a liquid polymer and withdraw it at a constant rate in a controlled setting regarding temperature and atmospheric pressure. 

E Coating

Also dependent on submersion, E coating is a mixture of plating and painting. We apply electric currents to the solution and part. In turn, this condenses the solution and forms it over a part. 


Just like it sounds, we brush the coating on to the surface. Typically, we apply multiple coats and ensure the brush bristles are compatible with the coating we select.

Roll Coating

Also as it sounds, rollers apply all of the coating layers. There are multiple types of roll coating methods, and we can execute them either manually or automatically. Different methods suit higher volume orders, while others suit less complicated productions. 

Fortunately, no matter what product you need coated, and no matter which coating method you prefer, we can help!
