Rock Paint Co. Ltd. offers automotive refinish paints, building paints, industrial paints and home use paints. The company is among the leading manufacturers of automotive refinish paints in Japan. Rock manufactures coatings in a wide range of colors, with an especially wide variety of pearls and metallics. These include brands such as its Panarock Mars 2K series, Rockace and Hirock. Rock Paint has recently introduced a one-package type basecoat called Pro Touch as part of an effort to continually advance and improve its line of products. Responding to movements aiming to reduce levels of VOCs in paint products, Rock Paint set out early to develop waterborne automotive refinish paints. As a result, general sales for a product called Waterbase have been initiated. Rock Paint Co. was established in 1952 and is based in Osaka, Japan. The firm recorded sales in 2012 of $229.4 mn.
