U.S. distributer for IPP paints
Posted by PipePlayer on Friday, November 30, 2018 10:33 AM

Does anyone know of a U.S. distributor for IPP paints of Korea?  A Google search provided only four or five sources that were all overseas and they are unable to ship by air.

Thanks in advance!!

The reason they don’t ship by air is because they’re flammable. Lacquer and enamel paints cannot be shipped via air, only by slow boat.

I know, that’s why I'm looking for a distributor or retailer in the States.  I'm hoping somebody has them here already so I won’t have to wait several months for them to sail from Korea.

Several months? I highly doubt it takes that long. I ordered some lacquer paint from Japan and waited 2-3 weeks before I received them in the mail. Once it arrives at the west coast, I was able to track my order.

Really?!  I've always been leery of ordering anything from Japan/Korea/etc.  Heard a few horror stories about it and got gunshy I guess.  Thanks for the response!

I'd just like to chime in and 2nd Sheep's comment.

I've ordered stuff from Japan, different sources, several times. No air shipment involved and average time is 3 weeks I'd say.

Haven't had a problem yet, knock wood. I can't imagine why a reputable Korean source would be any different. I hope whatever you do works out for you.

Did you find a US distributor?  If not, what Korean distributor did you use to purchase your IPP paint.  

 

thanks.
