SPECIAL PAINTS

In 2020 Visa took over VESMAPLAST SRL, a company based in Milan, which since 1969 has specialised in the production of traditional industrial paints:

  • one-part enamels: anti-rust, quick drying, thermosetting enamels
  • two-part enamels: epoxy, polyurethane, acrylic

The company subsequently began the production of special paints for plastics, its core business, primarily developed through the colouring of Philips TV cabinets, of which millions of pieces have been produced.

Special paints are high-quality products used in the following applications:

  • household appliances
  • furniture
  • automotive
  • cosmetic packaging

Some of the most renowned clients who have opted for these high-quality special paints include: Lamborghini, Guzzini, Pininfarina, Alessi and Mivar.
