Hi There,

Since you have not mentioned, your qualification and what you are currently pursuing, I am speaking in general the requirements to be a Paint technologists.

To pursue, Paint technology, a student needs to have completed 12th Science. After that you would have to appear for engineering entrance exam.

A little description of the work of paint technologists:

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.
