Special Coatings GmbH & Co. KG looks back on 20 years of company history. It all started with the development and distribution of customer-specific, water- and solvent-based coating systems.

Since the introduction of our innovative SC-Coater® drum coating machine in the year 2005, Special Coatings enjoys an outstanding reputation on the world market as an experienced system supplier for drum coating equipment as well as service provider for high-quality decorative and functional coating of mass-produced small parts.

The SC-Coater® developed by us is a drum coating machine that sets new standards in combination with a patented special infrared-drying process. With the SC-Coater®, mass-produced small parts can be coated economically and efficiently using the environmentally friendly “hot spray process” – at never-before-seen quality.

Your individual requirements are our daily motivation: the development of highly qualified products and services from a single source - so that you have only one contact person for all kinds of applications.



From the idea up to the serial production, special development of coating material up to complex surface requirements

We combine the SC-Coater®, the coating material and the production parameters to optimize the equipment for an efficient and profitable operation.



The range of lacquer- and coating material is as varied as the needs ou our customers. Many lacquers are exclusive, customer-specific formulations and custom products for use in the SC-Coater@.

Special Coatings provides a high range of coating material for decorative- as well as for functional surfaces. Based on the customer requirement, the lacquer will be developed either water- or solvent based.



The patented SC-Coater@ combined with our services and our know-how enables you to turn your ideas into praxis.

We are specialized in coating small bulk parts made of plastic, rubber, metal and other materials. We take care of the entire project-management – form the first sample up to the serial production.


Economical and efficient coating of bulk material

The essential advantages of the SC-Coater-process in comparison with conventional coating processes are:

  • Efficiency of lacquer application
  • All-around coating
  • Energy efficiency
  • Lower personnel costs
  • Exceptionally fast throughput times
  • No post-treatment needed
  • ..

Drum coating vs. galvanizing

A gentle treatment and environmentally friendly process for high-quality surface finishes

The requirements of a renowned German sanitary ware manufacturer were clear and stringent; the new coating process should be cost-effective and more environmentally-friendly. The company has set itself the objective of reducing its use of electroplating and to focus instead on alternative coating processes.

After intensive studies, Special Coatings was chosen because it offers modified coatings to impart a high-end matte galvanized look and best surface treatment by minimal overspray (~5%).
The same applied to a german manufacturer of household products, which was focused on a gentle treatment of its plastic rings. Until this time, the galvanized parts often broke by assembly. These broken rings had to be disposed of as hazardous waste, which caused extremely high costs.

With the patented SC-Coater®, the own lacquer development and the SC-job-coating service, Special Coatings has the technology and the know-how to coat small parts made of plastic, metal, elastomers and other materials.

The SC-Coater® currently offers the most effective and efficient spray application of coatings to mass-produced parts. The efficiency of lacquer application lies between 90%-95%. The coating process is fully automatic. There is no costly parts positioning (no frames are needed).

Special Coatings job-coating offers an attractive price - up to 50% better - compared to electroplating/ galvanizing.
