Tristar Coatings Ltd. – Leading Manufacturer of Specialty Paints

Custom Paint Solutions that Last !

Tristar formulates and manufactures specialty coatings for the Aerospace, Industrial and Commercial markets. Unlike conventional architectural coatings such as latex or alkyd paints, both our 1 and 2 component products are engineered to a significantly higher durability and appearance standard. In many instances, these coatings can be cost effective and excellent choices even for traditional architectural markets.

The paint and coating system including individual paint formulations can be adjusted to customer specific requirements. Surface preparation and paint application recommendations to improve efficiency and output are included in Tristar’s service. The result is a total painting solution for our customers. We, at Tristar, will make every effort to continuously earn your confidences and support.
