PRINCIPAL MANUFACTURER PARTNERS
Bens’ Paint Supply is a PPG Platinum Distributor. As such we carry several of the refinish product lines that PPG markets or owns, covering such industries as collision shop, marine, industrial, aircraft, sign painting, fleet and theme park fabrication.
PPG is a world leader in both OEM and refinish paint systems, marketing such popular brands as Deltron, Global, Delfleet, Vibrance custom color, Nexa, Shop Line, CPC industrial and the exciting “Go Green” Envirobase HP waterborne basecoat. For product and MSDS information, visit the PPG Refinish website.
Matthews Paint is THE premier selection for the sign, scenic and theme park fabrication industries. Available in Satin and Gloss qualities, and in Lo-VOC or Ultra Lo-VOC, it exhibits excellent long term UV and chemical resistance. The wide color selection, along with Pantone and RAL standards, makes it the top choice of professionals.
PPG purchased Ameron and Keeler & Long in 2006, forming the PPG Protective and Marine Coatings division. If you are looking for the ultimate in corrosion or fire protection for industrial applications, PPG has what you need.
Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing, like PPG, is a 100 year old + company that is diversified into several divisions, marketing thousands of products. We carry products from their automotive and marine divisions, such as abrasives, adhesives, fillers, masking materials, sealers and specialty coatings. In 2009, 3M introduced their red line sandpaper. A special catalog supplement was created to augment their existing one.
Almost every paint system we sell needs to be sprayed, and quality paint won’t look good unless you use quality spray equipment. Ben’s Paint Supply has partnered with ITW, who markets DeVilbiss, Binks, Tekna and other quality equipment for today’s coatings.
Evercoat, another ITW company, is a principle supplier of polyester repair products for automotive, marine and industrial applications. Their dedication to innovative and unique product selection keeps them at the forefront of modern, cost-effective repair techniques.
Norton Autotmotive provides a complete line of product innovations for 21st century collision shops. Abrasives, dual cartridge adhesives and sealers, compounds and polishes, disposable gun cups and masking materials are just few of the product offerings. Norton is owned by French company Saint-Gobain. They have been around just a little while – try 400 years!
