Hi There,

Let me first begin with a little introduction to the role a Paint technologists plays:
Paint Technology is the discipline in which one studies about the various ingredients - resin, polymers, pigments etc. that are used in making a paint.
- It involves understanding the chemistry of the functions of each ingredient going into the paint and the effect on the final property of the paint.
- They are responsible for developing new products as well as enhancing and upgrading the qualities of products which have already been developed.
- Paint Technologist identifies and evaluates the suitability of various paints for various applications.
- Paint Technologist explain to the customers about the right usage of paints and identify new markets for the products.
- Their work also involves developing new colours and textures of paints, new techniques for the application of paints etc.

JOB PROSPECTS AND CAREER OPTIONS
Paint industry is mainly dependent on automobile and real estate industry.

A Paint Technologist is required in different departments of the paint industry. They can find work in any of the following departments of paint manufacturing companies:

  • Research and development: In research and development, one has to identify, evaluate and develop various technologies, formulate the paints that meet the requirements for the desired end application.
  • Quality assurance: He looks whether the product has met the needed requirements and is the product user friendly.
  • Production: Paint technologists employed in production department monitors and improves the efficiency in the process of production.
  • Manufacturing: A person working in the paint manufacturing company is responsible for the analysis of raw materials and finished products in the quality assurance department.
    -Technical assistants/ executives who work on clients sites.
    In technical services and marketing sector paint technologists help in identifying newer markets, promoting products by educating customers, explaining the benefits and right usage.

Now whichever department you opt for, you would have to interact with others in the office.

But if you are into the technical department, whereby you are in the role of meeting prospective clients, understanding their requirements, educating them about the latests in the market etc.
These all require excellent communication skills.
Communications being a part of the interpersonal skills.

Mind you, whichever job you take, whichever company you work for, there would be colleagues around, even if you are working as an independent dealer, you would have to interact with your clients, thus interpersonal skills are a must in any field.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck............
