Decorative Surface Coatings

Overview Industry Overview:

Paints, drying oils and varnishes, synthetic clear coatings, and other finishing substances are decorative surface coatings which enhance the aesthetic appeal of an object by accentuating its appealing surface features and concealing flaws from view. They aren’t all about looks, though – decorative surface coatings also help to boost durability and resistance of the products they are applied to.

Decorative surface coating manufacturers adhere to high standards for technical and environmental issues, and implement technologies that will improve their products while holding down costs. They differentiate themselves through products with varying functionalities and aesthetic traits, at a price point that customers appreciate.

App Common Applications:

  • Industrial polymers, polyesters, epoxies, etc.
  • Thermal spray technology
  • Pigments, fillers
  • Solvents, carrier liquids
  • Safety and environmental programs
  • Specialty additives
  • Catalysts and dryers
  • Disposing agents
  • Fungicides, bactericides, etc.
  • Applicators
  • Environmental sustainability
