How Can We Help You?


Since 1993, Quick Tint has been a service driven organization formed to support the furniture and fittings industries with specialized wood coatings and allied products. Our product ranges are designed to protect all interior wood surfaces, and offer an aesthetically pleasing and high quality professional appearance.

Our products include the very best materials available on the local and overseas markets and we pride ourselves on our ‘one stop shop’ status, giving a wide range of choices regarding colour, effect, price, durability and application.

Colour matching is the core business of Quick Tint and the technology and quality control used is “cutting edge” while still embracing good old fashioned service. Recent ISO9001:2000 certification has meant that we can assure our customers of excellent product and service, which is continually improved upon.
