Dampney Company, Inc., a manufacturer
of specialty paints and high temperature
protective coatings since 1917, has
purchased the assets of Alvin Products,
Inc., manufacturer of Lab-metal repair
and patching compounds since 1950.
The joining of the two Massachusetts
manufacturers will expand Dampney’s reach, bringing innovative industrial
repair products, specialty paints and
high temperature protective coatings to
new markets worldwide.
Dampney’s new Alvin division will
continue to manufacture industrial
repair and maintenance compounds,
including Lab-metal, a one-part, high
temperature dent filler used by
welders, powder coaters, foundries and
numerous industrial repair industries.
Specialty Dampney products will soon
be available to Alvin’s North American

bearing/transmission and construction
supply companies.
