Getting it Right


Welcome to our Knowledge Center!

Greetings from the GreenLight Coatings™ team at Van Technologies! This knowledge center is intended to present bits of information on a wide range of coating related topics. We hope you find it of value and encourage you to contact us and submit suggestions for future postings.

Coating technology is simply amazing to us! Think of something that isn’t coated or that can’t be coated. That should be enough to illustrate the vast diversity of coating technologies and the types of coatings present in our world today. From cosmetics, to aerospace materials, from packaging to medical devices, and, of course, one of our favorites, wood. There are so many possibilities or as we view it, opportunities.

Van Technologies isn’t a traditional coatings company. We care less about selling products and more about providing a solution to a customer’s problems.  Helping someone succeed will inevitably result in your own success. That’s what we are about.  Call us, ask us and our approach will be to answer, provide, and help you succeed.

Over time, this Knowledge Center will provide information, case histories and successes achieved for a wide variety of applications involving coatings. Perhaps it can promote your success too!
