Something Really Crazy?
Don't Worry! Contact Us Today and tells us what you need paint to do. People ask us for crazy stuff all the time. Just because it's crazy, doesn't mean its impossible. Some crazy stuff we have worked on in the past include:
Paint for commemorative Johnny Cochran coins. Come on people. Everyone knows that nothing sticks to Johnny Cochran, except our Durium UV.
Paint for candle wax. People want to paint candles, and we made it work.
Paint for Cardboard Boxes that is the same color as the box. WHY???? Actually, this is a really good idea for lean manufacturing. Shipping labels and text can be covered up to reuse boxes, and all those boxes that your company just throws away rather than reusing can get expensive.
Paint that is designed to fall off. It turns out that temporary, easy to remove coatings are useful in preventing expensive damage to sensitive products in transit.
Clear Coat for Clear Polycarbonate. Outwardly, this seems ridiculous, but the product we developed provides PC, PMMA, and other polymers with tremendous improvements and scratch resistance and exterior durability. Bye bye chalking and yellowing on those headlights!
