Industrial OEM Coatings

Industrial OEM coatings often must meet a wide range of performance and production benchmarks, as well as aesthetic properties for both factory-applied and site-applied industrial coating applications. From increased durability to enhanced appearance to regulatory compliance and sustainability, Lubrizol resins, wax additives and dispersants help industrial coating manufacturers achieve challenging coating requirements, whether in wood coatings, powder coatings, industrial coatings, can coatings and more.

Liquid Coatings

Lubrizol offers a wide range of water-borne resin technologies for industrial OEM coatings, from Permax™ PVDC Resins for outstanding corrosion protection primers, Carboset® Acrylic Emulsions for DTM protection, or Aptalon™ Polyurethane Dispersions (PUD’s) for the toughest topcoat environments. Solsperse™ Hyperdispersants are leading dispersant technologies for long term stability and pigment optimization. Lubrizol corrosion inhibitors and passivators have been used for decades for short and long term corrosion inhibition. Lanco™ Surface Modifiers are used heavily in can and coil applications for friction reduction, in addition to scratch and mar resistance.

Powder Coatings

Lubrizol designs additives for powder coatings to greatly enhance performance capabilities. Our technologies deliver a wide range of aesthetic, durability and function-based benefits. Whether for top-quality scratch and abrasion resistance, excellent gloss and texture control, or any number of other benefits, the right additives impact performance in many ways. Lanco Surface Modifiers and Solplus™ Hyperdispersants are premium powder additives for diverse formulating needs.

We continuously innovate coating technologies to help manufacturers advance their sustainability initiatives – such as industrial coatings with low or no VOCs, NMP-free water-borne PUD’s, PFAS-compliant PTFE and PTFE-free alternatives, end-use products with a longer life, and much more. Our extensive portfolio of technologies delivers the right combination of performance, productivity, sustainability and value, all backed by Lubrizol’s commitment to market-driven product innovation.


Technologies commonly used in industrial OEM applications include dispersants, resins, wax additives, and specialty additives.
