Coatings & Adhesives
The coatings and adhesives industry is Univar’s heritage. We trace our roots to 1924, when we began serving the Seattle shipbuilding trade with paints, pigments, and raw materials. Almost a century later, we are a world leader in chemical distribution, with the products, focus, and resources to serve the full spectrum of the U.S. industry.
We offer the agility and precision that businesses desire in a distributor: efficient, trouble-free ordering for everyday needs, and the expertise to solve complex issues when they arise. We represent commodity and performance products to meet every application, from adhesion technologies to marine protection. Our technical specialists have expertise across the broad spectrum of raw materials and technologies to help you eliminate guesswork, showing you how to solve formulation challenges by choosing the correct product, the very first time.
And as the industry moves toward new market trends and a more complex regulatory environment, Univar can help with our industry expertise. We can show you cost-effective ways to be green, such as implementing sustainable manufacturing practices or using cutting-edge technology to create low-VOC products. Univar offers product- and process-based solutions to meet the new market landscape.
