What Is Toll Coating?   
Toll coating is a service offered by companies that already have equipment and know-how for applying coatings to products or components. This type of service allows customers to send their materials to the tolling partner for coating without having to purchase or maintain their own equipment.

The Benefits of Toll Coating Services  
The main advantages of using toll coating services are cost saving, add on capacity, and access to outsourced expertise and R&D. By outsourcing manufacturing customers avoid the expense of purchasing equipment as well as hiring staff with expertise in this area. Additionally, the use of toll coating services can reduce production times because it eliminates delays associated with equipment setup or troubleshooting. And finally, because these companies specialize in this type of work, they often have access to more advanced technologies than what may be available in house.    

Toll Coating Services for Unique Solutions

The companies offering toll coating typically have experience working with various materials and processes and can provide customized options that may not be available through traditional manufacturing methods.
