Titanium anodizing has many benefits; the protective oxide layer builds up on the component’s surface and this helps to improve both wear and chemical resistance. Using titanium anodizing in conjunction with a dry film lubricant will also help to reduce surface friction on components. Not only does titanium anodizing give the component a nicer overall finish, we are also able to offer a number of coloured effects that have provide to be invaluable for industry use in areas such as aerospace, motor sports and the medical devices. All our titanium anodizing meets current aerospace and military specifications.
Coating removal services are a vital if you need to restore you component or fabrication to a condition that closely resembles its original one. Our service ensures that the component, fabrication or surface is thoroughly cleaned and that no residual rust or coating is left over. There are a variety of techniques used to ensure total removal of the surface or powder coating, these include; burn off, localised high temperature removal, grit blasting, selective blasting, sponge blasting and chemical stripping. We are happy to advise you which would be the most suitable for your individual requirements.
Our coatings range is extensive. We supply our own range of Everlube® coatings, that come in 13 different types; including:
We have also been licenced to aply a range a coating that includes the following:
Although this list is fairly comprehensive, we are able to provide other coatings on request.
Procoat100™ is a revolutionary system that provides an anti-corrosion coating at its highest level. E/M Coating Services were hugely influential in helping to develop this easy to apply, stable, water based coating. The system can be used either as a primer or as a one coat system that bonds chemically to the surface and provides a coating that resists corrosion creep, chipping and water penetration. In extensive testing Procoat100™ has outperformed traditional coatings in testing for both harsh cyclic salt spray and SCAB tests. Fully compatible with virtually all OEM topcoats and finishes, it both meets and often exceeds the OEM and fleet performance requirements.
E/M Coating Services understand that the Oil and Gas industry face the harshest of environmental conditions and operational challenges.

Our team is able to advise you on the most appropriate coating and application for your specific requirements and we also offer an aftercare service of ongoing support and technical advice.
Material losses occur when there is removal of materials from a solid surface. The types of wear that can cause the elimination of surface materials include; sliding, rolling, erosion and galling. Although the losses may be small they can still be serious and if they go untreated, can result in mechanical failure and unnecessary machine downtime. E/M Coating Services offer our customers a vast array of wear resistant coatings that have specially formulated to protect the surface, improve the performance and most importantly help in the longevity of the critical components.
