 Fortech Products is a global manufacturer of TechKote, a low-VOC, water-based, high-heat, corrosion-resistant coating, as well as metalworking fluids, forming lubricants, industrial cleaners, and rust preventives.
 As the leading automotive industry supplier of rear axle, propshaft, power steering pump, engine pulley and damper coatings, Fortech Products has since invested in its research and sales efforts, moving into the commercial truck, off-highway agricultural industries and structural supports, supplying TechKote (WA 2975 R) water-based, extreme chip-resistant coatings, and its new-generation TechKote (WA 2951 P) corrosion-resistant coating. These products are fortified with superior adhesion properties that may be applied over bare steel with less-than-ideal surface preparation.
 For 2022-2023, Fortech looks forward to further diversification, adding additional commercial truck, agricultural and other industrial markets.
