Infrared-reflecting Paint Manufacturers

In the initial hour of research, the names and contact details of Precision Coatings, Inc., Tex-Cote LLC, and The Ultimate Coatings Company as manufacturers of IR-reflective paints suitable for metal surfaces were uncovered and presented. In the below report, we have presented the details of nine (9) more US-based companies that manufacture IR-reflective paints and coatings. However, since there was not enough information to cover only companies that manufacture IR-reflective paints suitable for metal surfaces, we expanded our search to include even those companies that manufacture IR-reflective paints suitable for all surfaces (like wood, concrete, bricks, etc.). The details of the nine companies have been filled up in the attached spreadsheet.

Summary of the Findings

Research Strategy

For this research report, we continued the same search strategy that we used in the initial hour of research. We used the database of industry information aggregators like the Thomas Publishing Company to search for the top paint manufacturers in the US and also those paint manufacturers that manufacture IR-reflective paints. However, even after extensive searching, we could not find 9-10 companies that manufacture IR-reflective paints suitable for metal surfaces. Hence, we had to expand our search to include those companies that manufacture IR-reflective paints suitable for all surfaces (like wood, concrete, bricks, etc.). Even this search came up short. Hence, we had to include even those companies that manufacture IR-reflective coatings in addition to IT-reflective paints. Since various industry articles and blogs (like this one) do not make any differentiation between paints and coatings, we concluded that such companies will be appropriate for our report. In fact, some articles like this one describe coatings as "paints with purpose." Surprisingly, our search also revealed that major paint manufacturers like Akzo Nobel and Hempel do not currently have products in the US market that are as per our desired search parameters. Hence, we have presented the details of the 9 companies that met our various search parameters. The email IDs of some companies could not be found as they are hidden behind paywalls. These entries have been marked with NA.
