Cerakote® Ceramic & Prismatic Powders® Enter Distribution Partnership with Suzutomo

Published on 2015-07-13. Author : SpecialChem

Cerakote® Ceramic Coatings and Prismatic Powders® announced a new distributor partnership with Suzutomo Co. Ltd., located in Tokyo, Japan. Tosh Suzuki, President of Suzutomo, recently attended the specialized hands-on Cerakote® training program to become Cerakote® Factory Trained and Certified. He also learned custom powder coating techniques to expand powder coating color options throughout markets in Japan. Suzutomo Co. Ltd. will be the official Cerakote® and Prismatic Powders® distributor for all of Japan and will specialize in providing Cerakote® ceramic and clear coatings along with Prismatic Powders® custom powder coating to industrial, automotive, off-road, firearm, and high temperature coating markets.

Suzutomo Co. Ltd. was incepted in 1925 as Suzuki Metal Plating and later incorporated in 1977 and offers a variety of services including metal plating and surfacing. As Suzutomo continued to grow, they recognized the need for a thin-film, high corrosion and abrasion resistant coating. These needs were met with the introduction of Cerakote® to their manufacturing and coating capabilities. Suzutomo also saw the need for complete color customization of automotive parts such as wheels and suspension components and discovered that Prismatic Powders® offers over 6,500 powder coating color options, including an array of metallics, two-coats, and top coats.

Prior to the distribution agreement, Suzutomo Co. Ltd. began applying Cerakote® products in 2012 to a number of manufacturing companies in Japan, specifically air-soft and eyewear companies such as Marui and ESS Japan. The successes of these partnerships led to the developed relationship with Cerakote® and Prismatic Powders® and the need for a Japanese Distributor became apparent. Suzutomo Co. Ltd. is looking forward to continued successes with the application of Cerakote® Ceramic Coatings, Cerakote® Clear Coatings and Prismatic Powders’® thousands of custom powder coating colors.
