Type
   Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Coating       Coatings are thin films deposited upon materials to add or enhance desired properties. They provide color, conductivity, corrosion resistance, etc. 
   Ceramic Coating       Ceramics consist of oxides, carbides, nitrides, carbon, and other non-metals with high melting points. Refractory ceramic coatings are sprayed onto the insides of kilns, and on elements to lengthen life and improve efficiency. Coated elements are more efficient and may last up to 10 times longer than uncoated elements. Although ceramic coatings are expensive, they provide long-term savings. 
   Paint       Paint is a pigmented liquid or powder used to protect and/or beautify substrates. 
   Primer       Primers are complete, preparatory coatings that are applied before base coats or clear coats. Many primers contain some pigment and are designed to provide adequate adhesion between the surface and subsequent topcoats. Some primers lend uniformity to the topcoat, inhibit corrosion of the substrate, and/or stop topcoat discoloration.  
   Base Coat       Base coat paints or coatings are applied after primer layers and before clear coat layers. 
   Clear Coat / Top Coat       Clear coats are transparent layers applied on top of other colored paint layers or base coats. They provide a glossier finish as well as sealing and protection.  
   Enamel Paint       Enamel is an opaque, glassy, white, or colored covering applied to china or metal objects to provide protection, waterproofing, and decoration. Enamel paints are tougher than lacquer paints and do not crack or chip as easily. Enamels also have lower levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and are more environmentally friendly. Enamels dry more slowly than lacquers, but newer catalyst additions have reduced drying times. 
   Lacquer Paint       Lacquer paints dry more quickly than enamel paints and are easier to sand since enamels can be gummy; however, enamel paints are tougher and do not crack or chip as easily. Lacquer paints often contain relatively high levels of VOCs. In some states, only businesses are allowed to apply lacquer paints.  
   Sealer / Surface Sealant       Sealers are coatings used to seal surfaces. Sealants are used to seal joints or gaps between surfaces. Some seal coatings can be used to seal or form a barrier on a surface, and to seal joints. 
   Stain       Stains are partly transparent coatings that color the substrate without obscuring the texture. 
   Lacquer (Clear)       Lacquer products are made from the clear sap of the lacquer tree (rhus verniciflura) and used to coat and waterproof objects. Lacquer is also strongly resistant to heat and acids. 
   Varnish       Varnish is a liquid composition that is applied in a thin layer and converted to a transparent, solid film. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted coating types.

Technology
   Technology       
   Your choices are...         
   Film Drying / Air Setting       Film drying or air setting forms a continuous, dry film from a binder which can be pigmented. The evaporation of the solvent, carrier, or thinner sets the coating. 
   Laser Fused (Laser Marking)       Laser marking uses a laser beam to fuse the coating, ink, or marking material with the substrate’s surface. Laser-fused coatings are extremely corrosion resistant. 
   Multicomponent       Multicomponent coating systems use a polymeric protective film that applies a prime coat, intermediate coat, and/or finish coat. Multicomponent coatings can consist of multiple liquids (A+B or A+B+C) that are blended together just before an end-use application. Some of the components can be catalysts, curing agents, retarders, accelerators, fillers, reinforcements, colorants, or specific property enhancers. 
   Reactive / Moisture Cured       Reactive resins are single-component adhesives that are applied in the same way as hot melt adhesives. The resins react with moisture to crosslink and polymerize, resulting in a cured material. Polyurethane reactives (PUR) are examples of reactive resins. Certain silicones and cyanoacrylates also react with moisture or water to cure the adhesive or sealant. 
   Thermoplastic       Thermoplastic coatings are powders that melt repeatedly when heated. They solidify when cooled. 
   Thermoset       Thermoset coatings are powders that undergo a chemical reaction during the cure cycle when heated. 
   Radiation Cured - UV Irradiation       Coatings are cured through ultraviolet (UV) irradiation. UV-curable coatings can increase productivity by dramatically reducing process time because UV curing coatings can set in seconds. Thermally cured coatings may take minutes to hours to dry and/or set.

Chemistry
   Chemistry      The resin is the film-forming portion of the paint.
   Your choices are...         
   Acrylic / Latex       Acrylic is a synthetic resin used in high-performance latex or water-based paints. Acrylic resins form the paint's binder and enable the coating to last longer and retain its color. Acrylic coatings are recommended for bonding metals. They can also be used with oily surfaces, glass, ferrite, plastics, and fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP). 
   Alkyd / Oil Based       Alkyd resins are used mainly in interior and exterior trim paints. Some medium-duty equipment and marine enamels use alkyd resins as binders. 
   Aluminum       Coatings contain aluminum, a silver-white, metallic element used to make hard, light, corrosion-resistant products. Aluminum has a melting point of 660° C, a boiling point of 2467° C, and a specific gravity of 2.699. 
   Inorganic (Ceramic, Conversion, Glaze)       The compound or material system is based upon an inorganic chemistry. Completely inorganic coatings contain both an inorganic binder and inorganic fillers. Inorganic coatings also include salts or inorganic chemical solutions that react with a substrate to convert a layer into a protective phosphate or chromate layer. These inorganic coatings are called conversion coatings. Coatings may contain a resin or polymer binder, or a base filled with fine, inorganic aggregates or mineral powders. The organic portion may evaporate or burn-off during curing or end-use. 
   Conversion Coating       Conversion coatings cause chemical conversions on metal surfaces to produce thin, adherent, compound coatings. Conversion coatings include oxide, phosphate, and chromate coatings. 
   Epoxy       Epoxy resins are a large, high-performance group of resins. Epoxies generally outperform most other types of resins in terms of mechanical properties and resistance to environmental degradation. Epoxy coatings are used almost exclusively in aircraft components. 
   Fluoropolymers (PTFE, FEP, MFA, etc.)       Fluoropolymers are a family of engineering plastics characterized by high-thermal stability, low friction, and almost universal chemical stability. PTFE, one example, contains fluorine and recurring tetrafluoroethylene monomer units. Teflon®, a popular type of PTFE, is a registered trademark of DuPont. 
   Formaldehyde Resins (Phenolic, Furan, Melamine)       Phenolic and formaldehyde resins are thermosetting molding compounds and adhesives that provide strong bonds and good resistance to high temperatures. Phenolic or phenol formaldehyde, urea formaldehyde, furan, and melamine resins are all part of this category. Generally, the most durable resins are made from chemicals of the phenol group and formaldehyde. Phenolic resins come in liquid, powder, and film form. Special phenolic resins are available that harden at moderate temperatures when mixed with suitable accelerators. Phenol-formaldehyde, resorcinol-formaldehyde, resol, and novalac resins are types of phenolic resins. Urea resin adhesives are made from urea, formaldehyde, and catalysts or hardeners. Urea formaldehyde resins can harden rapidly at moderate temperatures, but generally do not have the properties of phenolic resins. Melamine resins are made through a reaction of dicyandiamide with formaldehyde. Most of the resins in this group have excellent dielectric properties.  Furan formaldehyde (FF) resins are made by the polymerization or poly-condensation of furfural, furfural alcohol, or other compounds containing a furan ring, or by the reaction of these furan compounds with other compounds (not over 50%). Fire-retardant furans are used in hand lay-up, spray-up, and filament winding operations. Furans are commonly used in foundry binders, grinding wheels, refractories, and other high-temperature applications. Furan resins and chemicals are also used in fiberglass composites, hybrid resins combined with epoxy or phenolics, and in corrosion-resistant cements. 
   Glaze / Glass Enamel       Glazes or glass enamel coatings are fused onto ceramics, metal, or porcelain. Glazes are inorganic enamels based on a fused silicate composition. Glass or porcelain coatings have glass-like properties, such as high heat and electrical insulation. 
   Ink       Industrial inks are liquids, powders, or transfer tapes that are printed, sprayed, rolled, or transferred onto substrates or media to create markings, patterns, print, or graphics. 
   Marking Material       Marking materials include inks, laser marking materials, coatings, tapes, and supplies used to identify industrial parts, products, materials, and packaging. 
   Metal / Metal Filled       The coating contains metal or is filled with metal. 
   Resin Base / Polymer Binder       Resin bases and polymer binders are translucent or transparent and solid or semi-solid. They contain synthetic and/or natural materials. Examples of resin bases and polymer binders include acrylic, alkyd, copal ester, epoxy, polyurethane, polyvinyl chloride, and silicone coatings. 
   Polyurethane       Polyurethane is a tough, rubber-like elastomer based on the condensation of organic isocyanates with resins containing hydroxyl groups. Polyurethane is also referred to as urethane. 
   Rubber / Elastomer Based       Rubber is a natural or synthetic material that can quickly and forcibly recover from large deformations. Rubber is used as a resin in elastomer-based coatings. 
   Silicone       Silicone contains a unique polymer system that can be a very effective release coating. 
   Silver       Coatings contain silver. 
   Solvent Based       Solvent-based coatings primarily use volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as the carrier. 
   Vinyl       Coatings use a vinyl resin as the major binder component. Vinyl resins are used in both polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and polyvinyl acetate coatings. 
   Water Based       Water-based coatings use water as the primary carrier, but may also contain chemicals such as glycol ethers, alcohols, and other water-soluble VOCs. 
   Zinc       Coatings contain zinc, a blue-white metallic element that is malleable and ductile even at ordinary temperatures. Zinc can be electrodeposited and is used extensively as a coating for steel and sheets. Zinc has a melting point of 7870° F, a boiling point of 16650° F, and a specific gravity of 7.14.

Features
   Features       
   Your choices are...         
   Anti-Static / ESD Control       Anti-static coatings and electrostatic discharge (ESD) control coatings are used to minimize static electricity in sensitive environments. 
   Chemical / Oil Resistant       Chemical-resistant coatings resist acids, alkalis, oils, and general chemicals. 
   Conductive       Conductive coatings are used to form an electrically-conductive layer. 
   Dielectric       Dielectric coatings are made from nonconducting materials and are used in optical applications. High-reflection coatings consist of a stack of alternating layers of high-and-low refractive-index materials. Each layer in the stack has an optical thickness of a quarter-wave at the design wavelength. 
   Corrosion Inhibiting / Rust Preventive       Corrosion-inhibiting or rust-preventive coatings prevent moisture from reaching the metal or underlying substrate, or provide a sacrificial layer. Resin-based coatings are both corrosion and chemically-resistant, and provide a barrier to protect the substrate. Zinc or aluminum coatings provide a sacrificial layer that galvanically protects the ferrous surface, even if the layer is breached.  Zinc phosphate, barium metaborate, and strontium chromate (all pigments) are common ingredients in corrosion-inhibitive coatings. These pigments absorb any moisture that enters the coating film. Lubricant, oil, and grease coatings also provide a water-repellent barrier to inhibit corrosion. Rust-preventative coatings are designed to minimize rust or iron-alloy corrosion when applied directly to ferrous metals such as carbon or alloy steels. 
   EMI / RFI Shielding       Coatings provide shielding from electromagnetic interference (EMI) or radio frequency interference (RFI). 
   Flame Retardant / UL 94V-0 Rated       Coatings are flame-retardant in accordance to Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL) Flame Class 94V-0, or other equivalent ISO standards. These materials reduce the spread of flame or resist ignition when exposed to high temperatures. They also insulate the substrate and delay damage to the substrate. Flame retardant coating is often applied to textiles, fabrics or other materials to enhance the flame retardancy nature of the material. 
   Heat Resistant / High Temperature       Heat-resistant coatings and high-temperature coatings resist damage from heat, or are formulated for use in high-temperature environments. 
   Protective       Protective coatings are designed to protect substrates and surfaces. 
   Touch-Up       Touch-up coatings are used to repair and match the original where it has been damaged by scratching, corrosion, abrasion, erosion, scuffing, denting, chipping, delaminating, or other processes. The touch-up coating material should have good adhesion to damaged and prepped substrate and undamaged paint surfaces. The color and functional protective properties should match those of the existing paint or coating on the substrate. Touch-up coatings are available in small containers, aerosol spray cans, and pen forms. 
   Waterproof / Water Repellant       Waterproof or water-repellant coatings are clear, exterior finishes that cause water to bead-up on the surface. They also minimize the penetration of water into the substrate. 
   Wear Resistant (Abrasion / Erosion)       Wear- or erosion-resistant coatings are designed to resist wear or erosion. Wear is caused by a sliding action between two or more components. Erosion is surface damage or material removal caused by the impact of particles or slurries. 
   Weather / UV Resistant       Weather or ultraviolet (UV) resistant coatings are weather-resistant or protect against damage from UV radiation.
