Sherwin-Williams features game-changing coatings technology for commercial vehicles at WTW24


Sherwin-Williams General Industrial (Minneapolis, Minnesota) is set to make a significant impact with its advanced line of finishing solutions for the transportation market.

Duraspar IP Elevating Transportation Coatings
Designed for demanding markets, Duraspar Industrial Performance (IP) from Sherwin-Williams General Industrial represents a breakthrough in coatings technology. Offering outstanding hide and sag resistance with the aesthetics of an automotive finish, Duraspar IP is trusted by work truck manufacturers worldwide for improving first pass yield and reducing overall paint process time. Its proven ability to minimize rework makes it an excellent option for manufacturers looking to improve product quality while minimizing total applied costs.

“It’s incredible the impact that coating selection can have on overall manufacturing processes,” said Isabel Mevissen, Transportation Market Segment Manager for Sherwin-Williams General Industrial. “While coatings spend is only a fraction of the total finishing cost, coatings selection can have a major impact on cost drivers such as labor, touchups and rework, paint usage, downtime, and more. That’s why we’re proud to offer Duraspar IP, a total cost solution backed by decades of commercial vehicle industry expertise.”

Duraspar IP is designed for application on a variety of work trucks, including cement mixers, tankers, street sweepers, dump and service bodies, vacuum and garbage trucks, fire and emergency vehicles, and more.

Expert Insights & Networking Opportunity
Sherwin-Williams experts will be on-hand to offer insights into what sets Duraspar IP apart from conventional coatings. The product line is available in thousands of solid and metallic colors, a selection of which will be displayed at NTEA’s Work Truck Week. Attendees are encouraged to stop by the Sherwin-Williams booth to view the breadth of available options and discover how transitioning to Duraspar IP can streamline their finishing operations, increase throughput and, ultimately, increase profitability.

“Duraspar IP is a game changer for the commercial vehicle industry because it allows manufacturers to optimize their paint process, ultimately maximizing throughput and profitability,” continued Mevissen. “We’re excited to share the impact this technology can have on the work truck world by showing NTEA attendees firsthand how they can optimize their paint process while at the same time achieving a high-quality, beautiful finish that gives customers a competitive edge in the market."

The Company will also be hosting a complimentary Happy Hour on March 6 from 4-5 p.m. at booth #4125. All attendees and exhibitors are invited.
