Canadian Finishing and Coatings Manufacturing

Like so many successful independent publishers, Wilkinson Media was established with the singular focus of serving one collection of markets: the coatings and finishing industry. Its role of connecting buyers and sellers of coating and finishing products was driven by the trade title of Canadian Finishing & Coatings Manufacturing magazine. A commitment to readers and editorial content above all allowed Wilkinson to grow and expand its influence in the coatings and finishing industry in Canada.

Pete Wilkinson launched CFCM in 2007. 

He had chosen a difficult time to start a new publishing venture, as the financial meltdown of 2008 cut advertising budgets across the board. It is an indication of his skill and persistence that the publication survived and prospered through this period. CFCM was initially published as a tabloid but switched to the more conventional journal format in 2015.

Wilkinson was recognized two years before his death by the Canadian Paint and Coatings Association and presented with the Roy Kennedy Award,  CPCA’s highest level of recognition for those that support and give back to the industry. CPCA presents this award each year to an individual who epitomizes Roy Kennedy’s dedication to the paint and coatings industry and their outstanding volunteer service to the association and its members.

CFCM continues today as a publishing company under the direction of Kerrwil Publications Limited but maintians the same focus and commitment to the coatings and finishing industry started by Pete Wilkinson. Expanding from the foundation of CFCM magazine, CFCM reaches those in the coatings and finishing industry through an integrated suite of print, digital, online, and web-based platforms.

Kerrwil is your market resource.

PPG Receives EPA Registration for COPPER ARMOR Paint Powered by Corning Guardiant Technology

PPG Copper Armour Paint

PPG announced that the company has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration for its PPG COPPER ARMOR antimicrobial paint containing Corning Guardiant technology, proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on the painted surface, including SARS-CoV-2, in two hours.

The Copper Armor product’s efficacy was measured using tests that simulate real-world contamination that are mandated by the EPA for products making claims against harmful pathogens. Following this registration, PPG will begin selling the product in late 2021 through U.S. PPG PAINTS stores, independent retailers and select home improvement stores.
