Founded in 1990, Performance Coatings Corporation supplies printers, converters and manufacturers with specialty coatings, inks and adhesive formulations to solve difficult challenges.

           PCC's staff has decades of experience working with customers to:
                      • Improve performance of existing formulations
                      • Reduce issues that they are experiencing with their processes
                      • Eliminate defects that cause costly product returns and customer erosion.

Chemistries include:    • Water based     • UV curable     • Solvent based systems

When manufacturers cannot find the chemistry they are looking for "off the shelf", PCC custom formulates the chemistry that provides innovative solutions that our customers need. PCC works with our customers to develop custom solutions to meet demanding applications.

           Examples of typical improvements are:
                      • Faster drying or curing to improve output
                      • Improved adhesion to difficult substrates
                      • Improved release where needed
                      • Improved holdout on porous substrates to improve color strength, gloss and/or adhesion.
                      • Chemical resistance
                      • Improved reception
                      • Controlled gloss

In addition to our specialty formulations, PCC also offers “off the shelf” products when our customers are just looking for an alternative supplier to more common products where their existing vendor has come up short.

We are pleased to announce that
Spring Coating Systems has acquired the technology of Sustainable Solutions (SSI) and Performance Coatings will be heading the sales and development for the Americas.

SSI is best known for the Flexi-Lox cleaning blanket technology, which permits printers to maintain consistent print quality efficiently and ecologically. In addition to Flexi-Lox, SSI has developed a new corrugated mounting foam as well as technology to replace wood cutting dies and PVC films.

Prior to this acquisition, Spring was the exclusive partner for Flexi-Lox in EMEA and Asia. Spring's sister company in the United States, Performance Coatings, has been the manufacturer of the Softwash and Powerwash cleaning solutions for Flexi-Lox.

Performance Coatings is now heading sales and development for the Americas. Mr. Gerald Mounsey, CEO of Sustainable Solutions, has been named Vice President of Business Development for the Americas. In this position, Gerry will continue to develop sales of the product range and help Performance Coatings introduce its coating technology to the corrugated market.

As a specialty coatings manufacturer, Performance Coatings formulates a broad range of water-based and UV-curable coatings, including UV and water-based ink jet primers. As the corrugated market integrates ink jet printing as a complement to flexo printing, the primers from Performance Coatings will be critical to achieving print quality and other technical properties required by box printers.

We are very excited about working with Gerry to help expand these products on a global basis and look forward to working with you as a valued business partner.
