Whether it’s metal or plastic – our liquid paints feel quite at home on both surfaces. Wörwag’s product portfolio of water-soluble and solvent-based paint systems comprises primers, base coats, clear coats, top coats, soft-finish paints, decorative paints and special products such as SMC coatings and UV paint.
Powder coatings – if required also used in conjunction with liquid paints – fulfil the highest specification requirements in terms of chemical stability, weather resistance and extremely effective protection against corrosion. Powder paints can be used without solvents. The processing brings savings in time and energy.
It’s time to start sticking. Wörwag can manufacture 550,000 m² of painted film annually which would cover about 70 football pitches. Extremely environmentally-friendly and it is very colorful if required. Painted films are an excellent alternative to conventional coating processes. Painting with films can save up to 70 per cent of the energy required for spraying.
