wet coating

Wet coating is ideal for parts that cannot be heated, such as plastic. It is also the best option for parts that require a thin coat / finish (less than 1.0 mil / 25 microns). 

Wet coating is considered the traditional way to add a finish to a part, as it uses liquid paint. Wet coating can be a better option if you are looking for a custom color or a high gloss finish. Just keep in mind that in general wet coating is not as durable as powder coating.


Wet coating requires several coats of paint to achieve your desired finish. The Core Finishing team is trained to provide this service without the fear of drips or sags in the coating. 


Wet coating plastics begins with choosing the correct primer, which will allow the paint to adhere to the surface of the part. After coating, the parts are air-dried so that the shape of the plastic will not be distorted.

A wash / treatment is the first step for coating metal parts. This process removes any residue and creates the bond that allows the wet paint to adhere to the part.

The Core Finishing Method 


We are happy to work with you to determine the best paint for your parts or you can provide the paint. If needed, our precision maskers will cover the sections of your parts that can't be exposed to the paint.


The Core Finishing coating team will hang your parts on the chain-on-edge paint line (a conveyor belt system that moves through a loading area for hanging parts to a coating booth. Then the team will use the Anest Iwata Waterbone Electrostatic Spray Gun System, one of the best spray gun systems on the market, for wet coating to ensure that your parts are coated to your specifications.
