Each day in the United States, Original Equipment Manufacturers produce millions of pieces, parts, or units of an extremely wide variety of products, representing billions of dollars in sales, both domestically and globally. And most of these products require some sort of coating during the production process. Wilko Paint works with these OEM’s to provide quality coatings for all painting needs.

whitecabinetOriginal Equipment Manufacturers’ metal parts need quality coatings for two main reasons:

    • Most metals will oxidize given exposure to moisture and the environment, and some will do so much more quickly than others. It would be counterproductive and costly for a manufacturer to produce metal parts only to have them rust and become unusable, even in the brief time it may take to be shipped to the end user. Consequently, whether a manufacturer is fabricating pipes, trailers, motors, air conditioners, conveyers, trucks, tractors, mowers, blades, axels, or anything else one can think of, those parts are usually cleaned and painted immediately after production. A good rust inhibiting coating, (primer or direct to metal) will protect the metal surface from the effects of oxidation, or at least slow the process down considerably. Coating the parts will significantly extend the usefulness, marketability, and life of the product.
    • It has been said that people only have one chance to make a first impression. The same holds true for manufactured products. Imagine considering the purchase of a finely tuned, German engineered automobile, and having to choose between two cars that are identical in every way except that one is painted a dull, flat gray, and the other, a glossy silver metallic. Of course you would choose the more visually pleasing one. In fact, you might even be willing to pay more for that vehicle. Manufacturers and retailers certainly want their products to be as visually appealing as possible in an effort to convey aesthetics and quality, and to compete in the marketplace. And many companies are known by their brand and the colors associated with their products. John Deere, Caterpillar, and UPS are a few that come to mind. And, of course, there are other reasons to paint manufactured products such as safety, durability, ease of cleaning, and protection from the elements.

Wilko Paint provides quality coatings for OEM in many different areas of manufacturing, and unlike many industrial paint suppliers, we will customize our products to your company’s specific process, specifications, and color requirements. We offer a wide variety for your painting needs, including spray enamels, fast dry, lacquers, epoxies, urethanes, non-isocyanate, polyurea, and extreme condition coatings. We appreciate the opportunity to assist your company with your OEM paint and coatings needs.

 

 


 

naturalgasFor nearly 60 years, Wilko Paint, Inc. has been a major supplier of paint and coatings to the Natural Gas Transmission and Pipeline industry. The United States has long been a global leader in the production and transmission of oil and natural gas. There are an estimated 300,000 miles of inter/intra state natural gas transmission pipelines in the US alone. That is enough to wrap around the earth 12 times, or go all the way to the moon and beyond! Not to mention over 2 million miles of distribution lines!

Red PaintDue to the harsh environments to which oil and gas pipelines are exposed¬¬ including weather, heat, cold, hail, UV, acid rain, bird droppings, and chemicals- they require special durable coatings designed to withstand such environmental abuse. Valves, tanks, pipes, fittings, compressors, scrubbers, mufflers, etc., all need to be protected against corrosion, which can compromise the integrity of the pipeline and potentially contribute to leaks, spills, explosions, or other accidents. In addition to corrosion protection, it is important that these coatings also provide color and gloss retention for aesthetic longevity.Special Mixtures Due to the labor costs involved with sandblasting and painting large tanks or expanses of pipeline, natural gas companies demand long life and overall durability from the coatings that they use. Wilko Paint provides Alkyds, Silicone Alkyds, Silicone, Epoxies, Urethanes, Novolacs, Polysiloxanes, Phenalkamines, and Polyureas, among other products, to the oil and gas industry for these extreme applications, and we are on the specifications of most of the major gas companies. Wilko Paint also supplies high heat coatings for engines, stacks, and exhausts, as well as epoxy concrete floor coatings. In addition to above ground coatings, Wilko Paint’s “Gator-Kure” is an excellent choice for many below ground or damp environment applications.

Not only are our products designed to meet or exceed the requirements for the oil and gas companies, but our technical personnel, as well as our sales force, are well versed in these industries and are more than happy to answer any questions regarding the coating specifications, surface preparation, and application. All of us at Wilko Paint appreciate the opportunity to assist you and your company with your pipeline coatings needs.
