Reichhold produces a variety of resins and curing agents employed by a wide range of coatings formulators. The product line includes powder coating resins, alkyds, acrylics, urethanes, epoxy resins, epoxy curing agents and radiation-cured solutions just to name a few. Our customers employ our resins to produce paints, stains, varnishes, inks and other coatings products.
