StampBadgeUniformInternational Coatings, a leader in the development of textile screen-printing inks and a pioneer in the production of vinyl and urethane plastics, specialty coatings and adhesives, and traffic paint, is celebrating its 60th anniversary.


International Coatings was founded in 1957 by Herbert A. Wells, a chemist who previously helped develop Elmer’s Glue.  The company’s first products were custom industrial plastic and adhesive compounds.  Over the course of the next 60 years, International Coatings stayed true to its roots as a plastics compounder, pioneering numerous advancements in plastics, coatings and adhesives.  Today, International Coatings manufactures a wide range of branded and custom formulated plastic compounds for the apparel, traffic marking, water filtration, aerospace, sports and recreation, medical and adhesives markets worldwide.


The company entered the textile screen printing industry in the early 1960’s.  Many of the products developed by Mr. Wells and International Coatings remain industry standards to this day.  International Coatings’ high-performance Nylon inks and its classic low-bleed whites are industry favorites and have helped establish the company’s reputation for producing products that perform. International Coatings recently expanded its product offerings to include traffic paints and markings, meeting the growing demand for quality products within that industry.


“We at International Coatings are thrilled to celebrate 60 years of successes” said Stephen Kahane, International Coatings’ President. “We know that our growth, longevity and success come from our loyal stakeholders – our customers, distributor partners and employees. We are particularly proud that our Diamond Anniversary represents 60 years of continuous family ownership and management.”


Looking ahead,  International Coatings is committed to continued innovation, quality products, and outstanding service to our distributor partners and customers.  We recognize that  our success comes from customers’ success.
