Industries / Automotive Paint Protection


The automotive industry is one of the largest sectors worldwide. It includes the design, production, sales and maintenance of new cars and vehicles. At Trimaco, we provide products specifically for the production and maintenance stages, especially paint protection.

Production & Car Paint

Auto paint and clear coat are two of the last steps of automobile production. At Trimaco, we offer a variety of high-quality products such as automotive masking paper, paint protection film, spray booth surface protectors, paint strainers and spray suits that offer an additional protective layer and help prevent costly mistakes during this paint job process.

For car owners that want a DIY solution, Trimaco’s paint products (such as our line of car covers) can be easily used to offer another layer of protection to used and new car paint against bird droppings, water spots, and grime. This saves time by avoiding unnecessary touch ups.

Body Repair, Maintenance & Car Protection

Factory paint jobs on cars are designed to last the entire life of the car, however accidents happen, or sometimes car owners just want a fresh new look. Body shops take great care in the painting and refinishing process. Depending on the automotive project, body shops may use body fillers and sanding to refinish a surface before even beginning the paint process. Then, a basecoat is typically used to ensure a better color match. Auto body professionals use quality paint products and professional sprayers that add paint in even layers. A special top coat is added to ensure long-lasting performance. This top coat also commonly has a special hardener in it that is designed for long wear on vehicles.

For the general maintenance of auto body shops, Trimaco offers a variety of rags, wipers, and microfiber towels that help keep the car surface clean of dust, dirt, grime, and oil during the auto body paint and refinishing process. In addition, we offer coveralls, shoe guards and ANSI rated goggles that protect workers while on the job.
