IFS is capable of modifying powder formulations to give you exactly the look that you’re after without compromising the most important responsibility of an industrial coating—protecting the substrate. Additives can be incorporated to produce stunning effects such as metallics, hammertones, and silver veins as well produce practical properties like anti-skid and microbial resistant surfaces.
