Many manufacturers do not realize that there is a better fit coating on the market to increase the quality of their products than the standardized coating they are currently using. Better yet, some manufacturers are not choosing the correct coating finish. Here are five considerations to keep in mind while choosing a custom coating finish for your project:
Manufacturers continually deal with the same everyday issues in the plant. While working to produce a certain number of products per hour on each assembly line, technical directors and operations managers hold responsibilities like maintaining high quality, minimizing failure rates, minimizing defects, and finding ways to keep their processes completed effectively and quickly.
Many manufacturers expect the same results their industrial coatings have historically given, without ever questioning if the coating is right for the job. The story manufacturers usually have is always the same: they started using a standardized coating from the market years ago and they believe that there may not be alternatives, but reality says they can.
The outsourcing of support functions for any business oftentimes makes sense, depending on the answer to this question: do the benefits outweigh the costs? Even if coatings is the core service that a company offers, many times, benefits come from outsourcing.
