The Canadian Paints and Coating Industry is composed of manufacturers of paints, varnishes, lacquers, shellacs and stains and is divided into two broad subsections – the architectural and industrial subsectors. Both sub-sectors are relatively equal in size with regard to overall value of shipment deliveries. Architectural and industrial coating services are at the helm of federal legislation and consumer choice that dictate the direction in which the industry is headed. Currently, the Canadian paints and coating Industry is driven by environmental and consumer demand for sustainable manufacturing, responsible disposing practices, and taking larger strides in reducing national emissions of volatile organic compounds. Today we’ll delve into the Canadian Paints and Coating Industry by assessing the condition of its two subsectors and by examining industry growth coupled with environmental demands.

What exactly are powder coatings? When you first think of powder coatings (without the industrial context that is) you might think of a jelly donut lightly dusted in a powdered sugar coating. Now imagine that donut is actually a metal-based piece of equipment used in the aerospace industry. Where the powdered sugared coating is a custom powder coating applied for its protection against everyday wear and tear. Maybe not as mouth-watering as a jelly donut, but incredibly useful as a preventative measure against environmental corrosion and daily overall use. Today we’ll answer two questions about powder coatings: what are they, and why do we use them?

Upon completing the configuration of your product, you’ll want to ensure its longevity and durability. One way this is achieved is by applying an industrial Teflon coating, made to enhance protection against normal wear and tear through regular use. Teflon coatings are available in both powder and liquid, and offer nearly unlimited application to a wide variety of products and configurations. Teflon coatings are used for a number of their properties including...

High performance coatings – not necessarily on the minds of the everyday person, but something almost everyone encounters in their daily lives. Drive over a steel bridge on your early morning commute to the office? Ever wonder about the pipelines that transport oil across the country to warm our homes? Or what about the transformers that transfer electricity over long distances and into our homes so our appliances like our fridge, stove, and television work on a daily basis? The steel bridge, the pipeline, and the transformer all have one thing in common: they all (usually) have a high-performance coating.

Chemical resistant coatings are used to prevent wear and tear such as corrosion. These coatings also work to improve durability, lubrication, and scratch-resistance, in addition to promoting easy clean-up. Functions that require a simultaneously protective and consistent application while exposed to environmental and industrial chemicals would benefit from such a coating.
