Contract Manufacturing

The commercialization team at Kel-Glo works closely with our customers to thoroughly understand the project scope, and to align production resources to support the project.

Utilizing a disciplined start-up process, a Kel-Glo representative guides
each project through the commercialization process to ensure a seamless transition, timely delivery, product quality, and ongoing technical support.

Custom Formulation

Led by a Ph.D. scientist, our product development team uses formulary expertise, a disciplined stage-gate process, and close collaboration with customers to develop innovative solutions that meet emerging coating market demands.

Technical Formulary Expertise

        • 40+ years of paint and coating-related experience
        • Staffed by the industry’s top paint and coating experts
        • Extensive ASTM testing capabilities, including washability tester, slip testing, sag resistance, and many other testing and coatings performance instruments

The Stage-Gate Process

        • Five distinct gates: Ideation, Pre-Development, Development, Pre-Commercialization, and Commercialization
        • Accelerates speed-to-market
        • Increases the likelihood of product success
        • Introduces discipline into what could otherwise be a chaotic process
        • Reduces re-work and waste

          and milestones, and gaining commitment from management on
          both sides
        • Developing a formulation using Design of Experiment (DOE) to meet and exceed expectations
        • Validate formulation with parallel evaluation
