Coatings & Paints

Pigments and dyes add color to our world. FCI supplies all kinds of natural and synthetic dyes and pigments, including iron oxide pigments, chromium oxide pigments, titanium dioxide, optical brighteners, and acid and base dyes. FCI can also supply the raw materials used in dye material production including treatment additives and intermediates.

Coating, on the other hand, is a covering that is applied to the surface of a substrate. In many cases, coatings are applied to improve the surface properties of the substrate, such as appearance, adhesion, and the resistance to corrosion, wear, and scratches. FCI supplies a vast array of raw materials for the coatings industry, such as performance additives; waterproofing agents and water scavengers; coupling agents; resins; polymers like polyethylene, ethyl acetate, melamine resins, PTSI; and fire retardants like antimony trioxide.
