Color Wheel Paint, a manufacturer of paint and industrial coatings and part of the global Comex Group, has expaned into North Carolina which marks significant growth and geographic expansion for the Florida-based brand. Color Wheel Paint offers paints such as Flex Lox, Optima and Tropicoat; specialty lines such as UltraCrete and Texturi; and a complete line of industrial coatings. All Color Wheel products are designed and tested for durability in the hot, humid climate of the Southeast region of the United States where paint failure due to mildew and fading are major concerns. The expansion was made official on April 2, 2012 with the opening of a company-owned Color Wheel Paint store in Raleigh, N.C. The company said it has seen a growing demand for its paint products in this market as well as encouraging overall economic growth.
