AUTHORICOAT is a step by step process that was developed over the past 20 years by our coatings technicians to reduce, as much as possible, the human error and guesswork in the coatings application process to achieve a superior quality finish every time.
The AUTHORICOAT process is always evolving as new techniques and products enter the market. The Coatings Authority remains the industry leader in training and education, and ensures training for all our coatings technicians in the AUTHORICOAT process.
We do not simply go to the store, pick out the right color of paint or stain, bring that bucket back to the shop or job site, and put that directly on the surface. We create custom blends by mixing various products together, ensuring a smooth and optimal finish. Through our decades of experience, we have figured out what custom paint blends move through our sprayers the smoothest, and coat the surfaces in a way that creates a look that is both aesthetically pleasing and durable.
Our taping process consists of multiple steps, regardless of the surface we are painting, and is unique in that we actually spray past the tape and onto the surrounding wall. For example – when we paint kitchen cabinet boxes on site, we paint the walls around the edges. We then use touch up paint on the walls to (of course) cover the overspray from the cabinet, and then cut the tape edge and remove it. The result is an almost unbelievable straight edge, with no tape marks or uneven lines. It truly gives you the look that your space is new again!
