Founded in 1953, Evercoat (formerly Fibre Glass-Evercoat) began producing a fiberglass resin material used to recover and repair wooden boats. By the mid-1970’s, Evercoat entered the professional autobody repair market with polyester body fillers and putties.
In 1995 Evercoat was acquired by Illinois Tool Works Inc. (ITW) and is part of ITW’s Automotive Aftermarket Group.
Today, Evercoat is a leading manufacturer of autobody repair fillers and putties in the automotive refinish industry, patch and repair products for the recreational marine market.
Evercoat’s product innovation has always been a dominating force in the automotive industry. Beginning in 1961, the company introduced the first colored catalysts for polyester body filler which assured the bodyman of a thoroughly mixed product. The subsequent years brought many technologically-advanced products such as FEATHER FILL®, METAL GLAZE®, RAGE® and the METALWORKS® system.
Innovative technology continues into the 21st century with QUANTUM1, FIBER TECH™ and GLASS-LITE™. QUANTUM1 is the industry’s first 10:1 single step dent repair technology that fills like body filler and finishes like putty. FIBER TECH™ addresses repair mapping and bond line swelling problems on today’s SMC and rigid composites. GLASS-LITE™ is the industry’s first lightweight, fiber-reinforced filler. MAXIM™ Plastic Repair is the simplest system for virtually any automotive plastic repair. Just pick your speed, pick your product and go. MAXIM™ also offers bonding adhesives, sealants and foams in a convenient two-component cartridge. Use a standard, professional caulking gun and eliminate the expense and complexity of a two-component gun. Evercoat also has a PREMIUM PAINT FINISHING SYSTEM that consists of innovative compounds and glazes for all auto refinishing needs.
Evercoat is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, and has distribution warehouses in California and Canada.
