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). 
   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. 
   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. 
   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. 
   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. 
   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. 
   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. 
   Vinyl       Coatings use a vinyl resin as the major binder component. Vinyl resins are used in both polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and polyvinyl acetate coatings. 
   Other       Other unlisted chemistries.

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. 
   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. 
   UV / Radiation Cured       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. 
   Other       Other, unlisted coating technologies.

Form / Application Method
   Form:       
   Your choices are...         
   Aerosol       The coating is dispensed as an aerosol or spray. 
   Cartridge       The ink, coating, or marking material is packaged in a cartridge for controlled delivery via a printer or other type of precision dispensing equipment. 
   Film / Laminate       The coating is a thin sheet of plastic adhered to the substrate for protection. 
   Liquid       The coating is a liquid. 
   Marker / Pen       The coating, ink, paint, or marking material is packaged and dispensed in the form of a marker or pen. 
   Paste / Mastic       The coating is a paste or mastic. Pastes and mastics are thick, high-viscosity coatings. 
   Solvent Based       Solvent-based coatings primarily use volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as the carrier.

Features
   Features       
   Your choices are...         
   Chemical / Oil Resistant       Chemical-resistant coatings resist acids, alkalis, oils, and general chemicals. 
   Conductive       Conductive coatings are used to form an electrically-conductive layer. 
   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. 
   Exterior       Coatings are designed for exterior use and are weatherable. 
   Heat Resistant / High Temperature       Heat-resistant coatings and high-temperature coatings resist damage from heat, or are formulated for use in high-temperature environments. 
   Interior       Coatings are designed for use inside buildings and structures. 
   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. 
   Other       Other unlisted features.
