Services Malcolm Provide


Electropainting (e-coat)

Widely used throughout the automotive industry as a primer, this coating provides excellent corrosion resistance (typically in excess of 1000 hours salt spray to ASTM B117) and is an ideal base for overcoating with both powder coating and wet spray.

Powder coating

Powder coating is a durable and tough finish designed usually as a cosmetic finish, on top of either electropainting or phosphate, and is supplied in a range of colours. Normally available inside 24 hours, or 48 hours with e-coat.


Electropainting (E-Coating, electrocoating) is a painting method, which uses an electrical current to deposit paint on conductive materials.
