Coatings & Inks

Specialty supplier to coatings and inks production

We are a specialty supplier of additives, resins and pigments to the coating and inks industries.

It is worth mentioning that new solutions are continuously developed by our principals besides the already diverse available materials, enabling us to meet your evolving needs in these applications.

See our existing targeted portfolio below, yet, do not hesitate to challenge us to work with our coating and ink suppliers to expand our offering if unmet needs subside.

Coatings and inks add value in the process

It is important for Bjørn Thorsen to understand and appreciate the role of these coating and ink raw materials and pass on this information in an adding value perspective to the industry with primary focus on water-borne, solvent-borne, UV curable and 100% coating systems.
