Industrial Paint & Coatings Since 1916

Research and Development

Our Teams’ Research and Development is focused on solving problems in the real world of paint lines and government regulations.

The typical corporate approach of trying to influence the paint customer to use an existing paint or paint system is no longer an adequate solution for many companies.

Most of Continental Products’ paints are custom-designed to fit the exact requirements of our customers’ specifications and paint lines. That’s because we keep our avenue of research as open as possible by not imposing strict limits on their raw material choices.

This open-ended approach, along with the creativity of our chemists, has yielded breakthrough paint technologies that will fit your demanding production requirements.
