VHT (Very High Temperature)

VHT, a division of Dupli-Color® and a Sherwin-Williams brand, is one of the leaders in the specialty automotive coatings industry. Among its flagship products are mainly heat-resistant paints that were originally developed for space programs on various parts of space-grade equipment.

Thanks to such experience, these paints have also found their way into the automotive industry. However, the company's portfolio is much broader, offering other paints for various other applications within the automotive industry. This allows a high degree of individualisation for each "car-enthusiast", whether it is for tuning vehicles, but also for professional use on racing vehicles.

The complete range of VHT products can now also be found in our e-shop!
