Color matching service

Need a match to a paint or fabric swatch? Send us a sample and we will quickly analyze the shade using the latest color matching technology and create a match and sample panel for you to approve.

Custom color creation

Need a special color but can’t find what you need? Just let us know. We regularly work with design professionals and coaters to create the exact shade you need. Talk to us about exactly what you’re looking for and don’t forget we can create special effects, or create the gloss level, texture or metallic look you need.

Gloss levels

From matte to high gloss we can adjust the gloss of your coating, so whether it’s a flat black or a high gloss green simply let us know what you need.

Metallics

Metallic looks have become a staple favorite in the design world. It’s easy to add a metallic sprakle to your project - we can add metallic flake to any color to ensure the coating is exactly what you need for your project. Need inspiration? We have an existing metallic collection, or look at the RAL shades and we can add a sparkle shimmer to any of those.

Textures

Sometimes super smooth just won’t do. There are a range of textures available to add a tactile dimension and an interesting look to your coating,

Veins, hammertones and multi component powders

Adding a silver vein to your coating allows it to catch the light in a unique way and can give it an almost ceramic appearance. Hammertones offer that multi-component effect that has been increasingly popular over the last few years. Ask us for sample chips to see exactly what is possible.

Exterior furniture not only has to look good, but has to stand up to all that mother nature throws at it. Weatherability, holding its color, gloss or effect for a few years and resistance to humidity and salt all become important when furniture is situated outside. Choose a cost effective, attractive IFS coating that will protect against all of the above.

  • Lawn and patio furniture

Ensuring you know exactly what your coating can do and which performance tests it will pass is key to getting the right product, at the right price, for your furniture piece. Check out the specifications for some of more popular furniture powders. If you don’t see a performance requirement that you need, please just ask.
