Short Lead Times

While holding large stocks of specialist coatings, inks and corrugated board allows you to source low volumes competitively, it also allows you to take delivery of coated board on exceptionally short lead times.


Whether coating board held in stock by GWP Coatings, or supplied to us by you (the method favoured by a large number of sheet plants), our efficient production facility and highly trained staff ensure that both high and low volumes can be completed and supplied on exceptionally short lead times.

By using our in house coating machines, operated by skilled technicians with vast experience, you are guaranteed both performance and consistency of colour.


By operating more than a single coating machine, it allows further reductions in lead times and also means you can source material with multiple coatings (for example a flood colour coating and waterproofing corrugated) just as effectively.

Manufacturing Processes used at GWP Coatings

High and low volume coating

GWP Coatings also have a dedicated coater for Corstat conductive coating – ensuring that critical performance levels are never compromised on the finished Corstat boards.


Please watch the video below for further details of how the coating process works, the products / industries that typically use the specific materials, and a range of ways in which GWP Coatings can support your business.

Low & High Volume Coating

As the UK leaders in applying specialist coatings to corrugated cardboard, you may think that GWP can only help with large orders and high volumes.


However, you are able to specify all of the specialist coatings from runs starting as low as 200 square metres. This makes it an exceptionally cost effective service for practically any sheet plant or converter.

Coating quality control

As GWP Coatings keep an extensive stock holding of all the coatings, plus a huge range of inks that means you can specify  (again if on shorter runs), our operations are flexible enough to provide these short runs, or indeed very large volumes, whilst maintaining very competitive prices.
