About

If you think all adhesives are the same…well, you just don’t know Jack.

Protective Coating Company was founded and incorporated in 1954 by John (Jack) Long as a service company providing customers with a waterproofing product called “Spraycrete.” Soon afterward, our signature product PC-7® paste epoxy was developed. This product put Protective Coating Co. on the map. Today, we make a full line of repair and wood restoration products. From wood repairs to concrete repairs and most repairs in between…we have you covered.

Now in its 3rd generation, Protective Coating Co. still maintains their small town philosophy and remains a family run company committed to manufacturing quality products. Every batch of mixed material is still hand tested to ensure our high standard of quality. In each of our products you will find more than just a product that performs as intended, you will find a team that stands behind their products.

Our R & D department is constantly researching new products and technology in order to bring the most innovative products to the market. Recently, we developed the one and only truly clear epoxy; PC-Clear™. If you think all adhesives are the same…well, you just don’t know Jack.

As we continue to grow we pride ourselves on stating that our products are made and will continue to be made in the United States.

Today, PC- Products® is known around the world as a leader in quality and value in the adhesive industry. Protective Coating Company truly does make “The Impossible Easy™.”
