Construction & Architecture

The construction and architecture market is the beneficiary of a number of OMNOVA’s core competencies. Our additives for paints, masonry coatings, sealants and stains enhance the coverage, weathering and aesthetic attributes of many of the world’s best brands. Likewise, our binder technology improves the strength of gypsum wallboard, roofing tile fabrics, ceiling tile, carpeting and concrete admixtures. Various tapes and adhesives, such as painter’s tape, can utilize a combination of OMNOVA adhesives, release coatings and saturants. Other chemicals used in construction and architecture include in-mold coatings for molded doors and windows, elastomeric modifiers and antioxidants for window gaskets and other rubber and plastic components.
