Ever imagined the hardships manufacturing companies face while painting their products and parts? The aviation market, for instance, has stringent requirements for low mil of paint and coating to maintain minimal weight of the aircraft, and therefore reduce fuel consumption. However, the extreme temperature variations between the ground and high altitude levels demand a flexible performance-driven coating. Many manufactures are subjected to strict regulations for emissions and the need to reduce their carbon footprint and to mitigate flammability risk. Numerous manufacturing plants still rely heavily on different painting applications and outdated waterborne technologies to procure the desired mil thickness on the parts but fail. Enough of wasting time…..it’s time for an upgrade! Excalibur Paint & Coatings is focused on meeting these new challenges.
Founded on an idea of new and improved waterborne technology, the Texas-based Excalibur Paint & Coatings is a regional company that leverages decades of painting expertise of original equipment manufacturers (OEM) to predominantly focus on the Gulf Coast of the United States. From Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, and Tennessee to Mississippi, Texas, and Oklahoma, Excalibur Paint & Coatings is on a mission to redefine painting and coating processes with performance driven waterborne products that meet or exceed the performance characteristics of a solvent-borne. This includes a complete line of environment-friendly waterborne enamels, epoxies and polyurethanes. This new waterborne technology enables manufacturing plants to produce a beautiful coat of paint of the desired thickness with low risk of flammability and odor creating a better work environment for your employees. The best bit—the manufactured parts can be painted outside the booth with absolute precision! That is a significant benefit for the users. “Despite being a small regional tap manufacturer, we are leading the industry across the US and other parts of the world when it comes to environment-friendly waterborne technology,” states Randy Funston, CEO of Excalibur Paint & Coatings.
As the OEMs demand reduced production time and quick customer delivery, Excalibur Paint & Coatings engineers its products for high-speed production, infrared heating, and rapid recoats across a variety of industries. “We cater our solutions to manufacturing plants, truck and trailer, utilities, highway equipment, aerospace and various other OEM manufactures with optimal customer service,” states Andy Williams, Sales Manager at Excalibur Paint & Coatings.

The firm’s product offerings include traditional Epoxy Systems, Alkyd Coatings, Corrosive-inhibitive Primers, Polyurethanes, and Chemical Resistant linings. With deep roots in the painting industry, Excalibur Paint & Coatings works collaboratively with its clients to meet their durability and warranty concerns by developing the best-fit solvent-borne or waterborne solutions to speed production times, reduce VOC and eliminate bottlenecks associated with painting. That’s not all; Excalibur Paint & Coatings tackles yet another longstanding predicament of short pot life by utilizing plural spray equipment to achieve faster dry times. The firm’s waterborne technology is fully compatible with the clients’ existing application equipment to meet their specific requirements, durability and protective coating requirements.
Excalibur Paint & Coatings goes an extra mile in the painting industry by overcoming a hurdle faced by transportation equipment using the northern routes. De- Icers like magnesium and calcium chlorides and salts along the northern route wreaks havoc on the coating systems of transportation equipment. Excalibur Paint & Coatings offers several coating solutions to address this severe impact and chemical attack associated with northern routes. These specialty products offer excellent performance through variety of proprietory formulations with resins, additives, barrier and coat pigments that form a dense film to reduce moisture ingress and premature failures. “We enjoy working with the applicators and becoming a part of their team, teaching standard operating procedures to spray the required amout of coatings at the correct milage.” Williams adds.
Excalibur Paint & Coatings additionally proffers a broad array of solvent-borne and specialty products where air emissions are second priority. Moving forward, the firm—not resting on its laurels—will continue to run R&D for developing numerous unique, special, and environment-friendly coating products with both Federal and State regulations compliance.
