New Horizons in Coatings Technology - 1990
Polymers and High Performance Materials
The worldwide coatings sales in 1990 exceeded $55 billion. U.S. coatings firms accounted for almost 40% of this market which was divided almost equally between architectural and product finishes. The U.S. tonnage of powder coatings increased to over 65,000 tons with a dollar volume of $13.5 million. Sherwin-Williams continues to be the dominant paint producer in the U.S. The worldwide trend towards the increased use of waterborne coatings continues and trends toward reduced volume of solvents is being enhanced by the use of blends of carbon dioxide and organic solvents.
