Coatings update: the paint industry and energy

Pigment & Resin Technology

ISSN: 0369-9420

Publication date: 1 August 1983


The paint industry is not immune to the dual problems of an ever‐decreasing supply of oil and natural gas, coupled with what some would call the predatory objectives of OPEC. The paint industry has a need for energy, and this need starts with its raw materials. To be sure, there is today a “glut” of energy. And it is predicted that this glut will exist until the end of 1985. But sooner or later the energy short‐age will be felt, and the paint industry will not be immune.
