Paints and Coatings Manufacturing

Overview Industry Overview:

New technology and smart science are enabling manufacturers to create business success stories with such products as waterborne and high-solids coatings, powders, UV curables, and two-component systems. Manufacturers are responding quickly to government and market demand for safer, longer lasting paints and coatings for architectural, industrial and special purposes.

Color creation, mixing, milling, blending, and curling are among the many processes involved in manufacturing paints and coatings. Architectural paints and coatings, which maintain structural surfaces, are the largest segment of this industry – and about half of this segment is ruled by do-it-yourself end-users. The industry is continuing its search for cost-efficient ways to cut toxicity and waste while developing new techniques such as hydrophobic coatings and improving surface tack.

App Common Applications:

  • Hazards / safety processes
  • Pigments, additives, preservatives etc.
  • Resins and polymers
  • Formulation
  • Energy reduction, waste management etc.
