On Brand in Ontario


Grip-Gard products from Sign Finishes by AkzoNobel allow us to provide high-quality finishes to our custom sign projects, and the flexibility to create our own custom colours or to match PMS colours exactly. For example, with this project for Hot Oven Bakery, we needed to match corporate brand colours 100%. We were able to achieve this with the help of AkzoNobel and its Grip-Gard line of Sign Finishes.

Our AkzoNobel representative is always available when I reach out to him. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the products and guides me through the colour-matching software, providing me with paint codes to match PMS colours. He also helps me understand the blenders that I need to achieve desired finishes -- matte, semi-gloss and high gloss. I am incredibly grateful to the service my AkzoNobel representative provides me. Without his knowledge of these products, I would not be able to meet my clients’ expectations.

Coastal Delaware Sign Maker Returns to Grip-Gard® by AkzoNobel Sign Finishes

Mountaire® entrusts its brand to Phillips Signs and AkzoNobel

"The first time I used Grip-Gard Plus back in the 1990s, I knew one thing for sure -- it was good paint. Easy to apply. But more than anything, this paint holds up to the elements. We are in a coastal area and much of our work is installed close to the Atlantic Ocean. You could not have a much more hostile environment for painted products. The salt air seems to find its way into any crack or crevice and start the corrosion process. And the sun is relentless on any type of paint finish. I have some signs that were painted with Grip-Gard 10-15 years ago that still look good. I've used competitive paint systems that failed within three years in this environment. I'm so glad I switched back to AkzoNobel; like I said, Grip-Gard is good paint."

Ease of Application and Value Experienced in Ontario


These signs are looking sharp and made to last with Grip-Gard Sign Finishes by AkzoNobel

"We find the Grip-Gard products by AkzoNobel Sign Finishes to be more forgiving than other competitive products, in terms of being able to apply both thick and thin coats consistently. We also find the products to be of slightly better value pricewise than competitive products we have evaluated.  The combination of high quality and attractive price makes it a desired option for us."

Grip-Gard easily matches the most challenging colors

"There is no product out there like Grip-Gard by AkzoNobel Sign Finishes. Between the flash times, the versatility and the color I can create, the things I can do with this product do not even compare to other products. The ability to create incredible colors and easily switch from single stage to basecoat are amazing; and the dry times are like no other."

"Customer service at AkzoNobel is also the best. Any time I have ever had an issue, someone is there to immediately help me and my issue is always resolved."
