Protecting your future, today

In the 1980's market demand for high performance and locally produced
industrial coatings led General Paints Limited into the manufacture of customised products for the industrial sector. Our success in
this venture is reflected in the fact that specialist industrial coatings now account for a significant amount of our
total business.

Today, General Paints Limited manufactures a wide variety of industrial coatings, from traditional synthetic oxides to special long-life polyurethane coatings for the protection and decoration of industrial surfaces. 

We have earned our reputation in the area of substr
ate protection as the coating
supplier for many prestigious contracts including:

  • The Ha'Penny Bridge and Sean Heuston Bridge over the River Liffey in Dublin
  • The Turner Green House and The Palm House in Dublin's Botanic Gardens


Our products include a broad range of polyurethane systems which offer cost-effective, exceptionally durable and long-life maintenance solutions for a variety of industrial applications including bridges, railcars and boats.

In recent years water-borne industrial systems have become the favoured
solution for industrial applications where increasing environmental legislation demands reduced solvent emission. We manufacture avariety of coatings for this specific purpose including Water Based Polyester systems for heavy-duty corrosion protection, and EPIGEN - a Water-Based Epoxy maintenance coatingsuitable for walls and floors.


General Paints couples broad experience and knowledge with technical strength in the development of our industrial portfolio. Flexibility to meet the specific coating needs of the industrial customer and the ability to offer coatings in a wide choice of colour, including RAL and BS, is key to our success in this sector. General Paints prides itself on having some of the best and most technically competent paint chemists in Ireland on its staff and the availability and accessibility of strong local technical back up has been another key factor in securing prestigious industrial contracts in the face of strong international and multi-national
competition.
