Thacker Caskets uses a “thermo-set” method in painting caskets. This process is similar to painting a car. While this is the most expensive method of painting a casket, it is also the method that will give you the highest DOI (Depth of Image), gloss, and durability.
Thacker has partnered with IVC Industrial Coatings as its paint vendor. IVC is a family-owned, American based company from Indiana with five manufacturing plants based in the United States – embodying the same family-owned, American made ideals as Thacker.
The paint that Thacker Casket Manufacturing uses on its metal casket products is a high-solids paint, meaning the paint has a large amount of metallic flake and must be circulated throughout our paint lines every hour of every day - our paint room runs 24 hours, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. The extra effort and expense to paint in this fashion creates a beautiful paint finish whether it is under the lights of a showroom or in the natural light out at a cemetery.
