Coatings/Inks/Adhesives: an industrial coating is a paint or coating defined by its protective, rather than its aesthetic properties, although it can provide both. The most common use of industrial coatings is for corrosion control of steel or concrete.

Ink is a complex medium composed of solvents, pigments, dyes, resins, lubricants, solubilizers, surfactants, particulate matter, fluoresces, and other materials. The components of inks server many purposes; the ink's carrier, colorants, and other additives are used to control flow and thickness of the ink and its appearance when dry.

Adhesive or glue is a compound in a liquid or semi-liquid state that adheres or bonds items together. Adhesives may come from either natural or synthetic sources. Some modern adhesives are extremely strong, and are becoming increasingly important in modern construction and industry. (Types of adhesives: natural, synthetic, drying, contact, hot, emulsion, UV and light curing, pressure sensitive)
