Paints, Inks, Coatings, Glues & Adhesives

We deliver the strengths of global suppliers to protect, connect or beautify our world. Whether making a package appealing, protecting a car, or completing a circuit, we bring solutions that help enhance our everyday lives.

Packaging

Consumer tastes and health concerns are driving dramatic change in packaging. Brighter colors, enhanced shelf-life, sustainable inks, and clean-label coatings are high priorities for consumer brand owners. With such a range of new challenges, our extensive experience in waterborne, UV and traditional systems help partners to stay one step ahead.

Electronics

As intelligence and connectivity blends into every part of our lives, electronic components and products must become more stylish, smaller, more durable and more flexible. Such developments put new demands on internal adhesives and sealants as well as external surfaces. Whether the need is for textured, vivid enclosures or impact-resistant parts, our team and partners provide innovative solutions to make future visions a reality.

Automotive

We place extreme demands on our cars. We drive through heat, ice, mud, saltspray and acid rain. We spill coffee, use hand creams, or step into the car after a long workout at the gym. We sometimes scratch or bump the car, or shatter a windshield. Through all of this, the automobile must remain safe, functional and beautiful. Our team offers green solutions for such surface, adhesion and other interface challenges.

Architecture

Architectural paints require convenient application, protection and weatherability, all while considering health, regulatory and environmental issues. Waterborne, bio-based or high-solid systems, reflective surfaces, and wrapping technologies are all driven by such demands. We work together with our partners to provide such advanced earth-friendly solutions.
