Architectural Coatings

Industry Overview:
  Anyone who has tried to use interior paint on an exterior door knows the importance of selecting the right architectural paint and coating. As with architectural design, architectural coatings combine both art and science: science in the development of coatings for residential, commercial and industrial structures, and art in the colors and textures designed and developed for the market. The final piece of the puzzle is smart business, determining the best price points.

There are a number of end features that influence the market. Health concerns must be considered, including asthma- and allergy-friendliness; odors need to be reduced; and products should be sustainable. And because these coatings may be applied by novice do-it-yourselfers as well as by experienced contractors, products must be foolproof. One advance that has significantly improved the ease of use for architectural coatings is the growth of paint-and-primer-in-one products.

Common Applications:
 
  • Paints, primers, stains and seals
  • Volatile organic compounds
  • Environment, health, safety
  • Elastomer coatings
  • Colors, gloss retention
  • Formulators
  • Resins, solvents and pigments
