About Us

EMAYLUM ITALIA s.r.l. is a company dedicated to the production of enamels and vitrifiable products for metal, glass and ceramics.


Our company has its origins in the Fifties in Segrate (MI) with KAREL, where they already produced their own frits in melting furnaces, and which became over time Blythe Karel, later Cookson Matthey and finally Johnson Matthey. The latter company sold its porcelain enamel branch to the current ownership in 1999, initially as part of a partnership with multinational society Wendel Email GmbH. In 2017, after acquiring all the society, our company has been renamed, continuing its activities in a completely autonomous way, but with the dedication we are well-known for, and with a know-how that distinguishes us in the European landscape.


14 years in Emails Bayer in Filago (later Pemco), 12 years in Johnson Matthey and 18 more years with Wendel Email Germany, with a lot of newly developed products, show the solid know-how of the current technical-commercial management.


Our company is a leader in the innovation, research, assistance and commerce of not only traditional but also special enamels, those that other producers do not make or that do not exist on the market. All our products are in full agreement with the RoHS and REACH directives and, for this reason, they are completely free of lead, nickel and any other substance dangerous for health or environment. All this is what earned us appreciation and esteem for over 20 years from the most important customers, both producers and contractors.

Ask for the most unthinkable product for your success, if it does not exist yet, and we will invent it for you.


Our company develops and sells porcelain enamels, to many national and multinational companies, such as Electrolux. We also sell to customers producing chemical reactors, resistors and panels for heat exchangers. We are leaders in production of enamels for pipes.

Our society made its name also in the field of products for glass, thanks to an offer of special products developed in our laboratories, with customers such as Saint Gobain Italia, Ilva Glass, Valentini and several glassmaking factories.
