The present study focuses on the heat transfer by the laminar flow of an elastico-viscous fluid in posttreatment of wire coating analysis with linearly varying temperature on the surface of coated wire. The surface of wire (uncoated) and the surface of coated wire were subjected to two thermal boundary conditions. The constitutive equation of motion and equation of energy have been solved by using perturbation theory for velocity, pressure distribution along the radial direction and temperature distribution. The theoretical analysis of flow rate, average velocity, shear stress, thickness of coated wire, and force on the total wire were also derived. Moreover, the flow phenomenon has been studied under the influence of elastic number R e velocity ratio U and the dimensionless number S in the ranges 0 ≤ R e ≤ 20, 0.2 ≤ U ≤ 1.4 and 0 ≤ S ≤ 20. We noticed that with the increase in elastic number Re velocity decreases whereas thickness of the coated wire and force on the total wire increases. Also temperature profile decreases with the increase of non-dimensional parameter S.
