COMPANY OVERVIEW

Sumter Coatings began its life in the fall of 1996. With the purchase and closing of Southern Coatings / Pratt & Lambert, the employees saw a need to start a new company, thus, Sumter Coatings. We have a combined history and knowledge of over 250 years in the coatings industry.

Since our company’s inception, we have become a leader in the paint and coatings industry. We are proud of our company’s rich heritage.

Our 71,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility enables us to research, develop and manufacture the finest coatings. Our facility is equipped with stainless steel mixing tanks, which are mounted on load cells for the most accurate measuring of raw materials. Our spacious facility allows us to stock many of the items you need fast. Our plant has the capability to produce batches up to 5,000 gallons and production capabilities of over 60,000 gallons per week.

We have now been operating for close to 20 years and have been very successful in extending our relationships, as well as establishing new ones. We have formulated new products with more expectations for the future.

Rust Inhibitive & Protective Primers image

Rust Inhibitive & Protective Primers

Rust inhibitive primers are truly our everyday workhorse primers. They have protected more structural steel throughout the southeastern US than any other single primer we produce.
Universal Steel Primers image

Universal Steel Primers

These steel primers are versatile by design. They contain a significant amount of rust inhibitive pigment, which translates to protection from corrosion for extended periods of time before top coating or enclosure. Additionally, as a result of resin modification, they may be top coated with coatings containing strong solvents, such as two-part epoxies and polyurethanes, without fear of lifting the primer. This is the primer of choice when the subsequent topcoat is unknown. They may also be used as an intermediate coat over old coatings that may lift if top coated with coatings containing strong solvents.
Zinc Rich Primers image

Zinc Rich Primers

Our zinc-rich primers offer superior long-term protection for steel from corrosion and have excellent adhesive and protective properties. They perform similarly to galvanizing for structural steel surfaces. These primers contain a high percentage of zinc dust, which acts sacrificially when in direct contact with the steel. The zinc salts, which invariably form, fill the pores of the primer sealing off the steel substrate from moisture. They also are very flexible when applicating, as top coats don't need to be applied immediately after the primer.
Two-Part Epoxy Primers image

Two-Part Epoxy Primers

Two-part epoxy primers are structural steel primers that require two-components, which cure chemically by cross linking. The resulting film is abrasion, chemical and moisture resistant. These two-part epoxy primers are intended for use over properly prepared steel and concrete. They are suitable for many industrial exposures such as structural steel, power plants, marine applications, water treatment plants, and tank exteriors, to name a few.
Industrial Water Based Primers image

Industrial Water Based Primers

Our water-based primers perform well in helping curb the onslaught of corrosion. In addition, they may help resolve some of the environmental and safety issues facing the steel fabricator. Contact Sumter Coatings today for more information on our water based primer products!
Specialty Primers image

Specialty Primers

The application of a specialty primer is sometimes overlooked prior to the application of a protective coating. They are used to promote adhesion and seal the substrate prior to the application of a protective coating.

Siemens Facility - Charlotte, NC image

Siemens Facility - Charlotte, NC

The new addition to the Siemens Facility in Charlotte, NC needed a lot of structural steel. That steel fabricated by Cooper Steel of Shelbyville, TN needed a lot of protection before and during erection. Sumter's 100W0038 Universal Primer White was chosen for this project for a number of reasons including fast dry, rust inhibitive, light reflectance and the ability to accept a wide variety of topcoats. 100W0038 White Corrosion Resistant Primers meets or exceeds the performance requirements of SSPC Paint No. 25, TT-P-664, and MPI # 76.
Caterpillar -  Winston-Salem, NC  image

Caterpillar - Winston-Salem, NC

When Caterpillar chose Winston-Salem, NC as the desired location for their new facility, it was a natural to select Lyndon Steel in Winston-Salem to fabricate the structural steel. Lyndon, in turn, chose 100D8814 Inhibitive Primer Gray to protect the steel from corrosion before and during the erection process. 100D8814 Gray Corrosion Resistant Primers meets or exceeds the performance requirements of SSPC Paint No. 25 and MPI # 76.
Seaside Project -  Haskell Steel, Jacksonville, FL image

Seaside Project - Haskell Steel, Jacksonville, FL

Due to the location of this seaside project, more than just a shopcoat primer was required to protect the exterior steel trusses. A constant salt environment is the enemy to steel. Haskell Steel in Jacksonville, FL did the fabrication and selected to go with a three-coat system from Sumter Coatings. A prime coat of 346D7714 Inhibitive Epoxy Gray was followed with an intermediate coat of 346D7720 Inhibitive Epoxy Light Gray, then topcoated with 318 Series High Build Urethane for additional protection and aesthetics.
Washington Redskins Training Center - Richmond, VA  image

Washington Redskins Training Center - Richmond, VA

The new Washington Redskins Training Center in Richmond, VA is an impressive facility. The structural steel for this venue was fabricated by Weldon Steel Corporation in Weldon, NC. Weldon selected their "go to primer," 100D7714 Inhibitive Shopcoat Primer Dark Gray, to protect the steel during and before erection. 100D7714 meets or exceeds the performance requirements of SSPC Paint No. 15 and MPI #79.
Michelin plant - Anderson, SC  image

Michelin plant - Anderson, SC

Structural steel for the new Michelin plant in Anderson, SC was fabricated by Cooper Steel in Shelbyville, TN. Cooper wanted a shop primer that would offer protection from the elements prior to erection. In addition, it had to dry fast to a smooth consistent film. They chose 100D7744 Inhibitive Shopcoat Primer Cooper Gray. 100D7744 meets or exceeds the performance requirements of SSPC Paint No. 15 and MPI # 79.
