Rock Paint is among the leading manufacturers of automotive refinish paints in Japan. These include brands such as its Panarock Mars 2K series, Rockace and Hirock. Rock Paint has in recent years introduced a one-package type basecoat called Pro Touch. Responding to movements aiming to reduce levels of VOCs in paint products, Rock Paint set out early to develop waterborne automotive refinish paints.
