Solving challenges is the very foundation of who we are. After all, in the beginning, our founder, sea captain Robert Fergusson, didn’t particularly care about paint. He just wanted to keep his ship intact. That’s why, when he noticed that an accidental splash of fish oil had stopped the relentless spread of corrosion on his rusty metal deck, he immediately recognized it for what it was: A valuable solution. The same passion that drove the Captain to spend his next few years creating the world’s first rust-preventative paint still drives us today. When we see a problem, we work diligently until we’ve perfected a solution—which has led to some of the most cutting-edge, durable and innovative products in the industry.
If you’ve got a surface you need to protect or a look you want to transform, you’ve come to the right place. We have a coating for every challenge.

In 1947, a Philadelphia businessman, Howard E. Kester, revolutionized the paint industry and founded Krylon, Inc., the first and still largest supplier of aerosol paints in the world. Krylon® Products were first introduced in 1947 by Foster & Kester, a manufacturer of brush-on clear protective acrylic coatings used in the commercial art business. Inspired by the DuPont Corporation’s development of a formula combining gas and liquid into a single spray can, Kester creatively devised a way to blend his coatings into a product that had many advantages over the brush-on method – aerosol.
Founded in 1849 on the principles of quality and innovation, the Zinsser® brand is known for professional-quality, problem-solving products that make the job easy and get it done right.
