Coating Process Overview

What is Coating?

Coatings are materials that form a continuous film over the surface of the part being coated. Coatings impart color, sheen, and protection to parts. Coatings include paints formulated for brushing/rolling, powder coatings, and conventional spray coatings. Paints are water, oil, and solvent-based and are made in epoxy, polyester, lacquer, enamel, and latex formulations.
