Choosing The Right Industrial Paint


As a manufacturer, painting is an essential step in the overall process of getting your products in the “hands” of the consumer! A consumer’s attention is caught by color however; protection is an equal factor when painting. Selecting the proper coating will ensure the best long term performance for your job. One of the first things to consider in choosing your paint is the item being painted. Is it wood, metal, plastic concrete, etc.? The chemistry of the paint allows manufacturers to deliver coatings targeted to each specific substrate. In an industrial environment, will your paint be inside or exposed to UV rays and the weather outside? Will it be subject to any harsh chemicals, water, or extreme heat?

Protection and esthetics are the two reasons for painting, and Forrest Paint Co. will help you with the best painting option in your industrial setting. Lighting and sheen levels are also very important factors when selecting your paint. Different lighting sources will definitely alter the appearance of your color so always determine the type of lighting your paint will be viewed in when making your color choice. The gloss (sheen level) is another important consideration in your choice of paint. It can range from flat to glossy and has an impact on the appearance and performance of your paint.
