In 1947 Stanley Lopata developed a product to solve a problem for a single customer. Solving customer's problems is how we got our start and after more than 60 years, it's still our focus at Carboline.

Carboline is part of RPM International, a fortune 300 Company. We are a global supplier of coatings, linings, and fireproofing with offices and manufacturing worldwide. We have a strong commitment to the protective coatings industry.

Carboline takes an active role in professional organizations such as the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) and Society of Protective Coatings (SSPC). As an active member of the protective coatings industry, we sponsor educational programs such as scholarships and a professorship in corrosion engineering at the University of Akron. We are committed to progressing corrosion science for the future of the coatings industry.

Our goal is to meet your needs and expectations by recommending products that provide the right solutions. By doing this, Carboline has become the global standard of quality when it comes to high performance coatings, linings and fireproofing products.

Our unwavering focus on performance, broad industrial market experience, continuous investment in long-term product development and testing, and our ability to meet challenges anywhere in the world makes us a source of coatings knowledge customers find invaluable. Today is no different than when we started; solving customers' problems drives our approach to everything we do... that's Coatings Done Right.
