A Quest Automotive Products Brand | About QAP
Matrix Logo


Matrix System Automotive Finishes, a Quest Automotive Brand, was the first aftermarket automotive paint manufacturer to successfully formulate, manufacture, distribute, and bring to market a complete line of advanced technology paint and coating systems to professional refinishers nationwide. Today, we are a premium manufacturer of clearcoats, primers, reducers, intermix system toners, pearls, and companion products.

Over the years, we have dedicated ourselves to producing high performance coatings to a variety of customers including warehouse distributors, automotive jobber distributors, collision repair facilities, production shops, professional refinishers, and auto body/bike builders.

In 2006, Quest Specialty Chemicals (QSC), a leader in the specialty coatings industry, acquired and added Matrix System to its platform. QSC is organized into three principal divisions focusing on transportation, industrial, and construction coatings. Matrix System is part of the Quest Automotive Products (QAP) division, which also includes U.S. Chemical and Pro-Spray. Raabe Company, Patriot Paint, Zolatone, and Z-Line form the Specialty Coatings division while United Coatings Manufacturing Co., HydroStop, and StreetBond form the Construction Products division.

The QAP division manufactures, distributes, and markets automotive refinish products such as body fillers, basecoats, primers, clearcoats, hardeners, and solvents.

At Matrix System, we are dedicated to meeting the needs and requirements of our customers, vendors, and employees. Our continued growth is from providing customers with exactly what they want – high performance systems and paint products at reasonable prices.
