Decorative & functional coatings.
The Domestic appliance industry requires a wide variety of finishes for components that are mainly function driven but with cosmetic consideration becoming increasingly important.
Finishes in this market can be subject to changes in fashion as well as changes in technology. Above all, because consumers are quite rightly very demanding, quality, durability and economy are all of equal importance.
Requirements for various finishes can be:

- Detergent resistance
- Easy to clean (anti-graffiti)
- Wear resistance
Typical components may be:
- Kitchen Storage
- Dishwasher Baskets
- Refrigerator Shelves
