The standard in paint: made from plants
Plant-based paint is nothing new – in fact it’s been around for 17,000 years (long before even DSM existed). In more recent times we’ve seen a move from solventborne to waterborne resin and coating technology. But now, a new plant-based revolution is being ushered in by the bright minds at DSM.
Decovery® is a family of eco-friendly paint resins that contain anywhere from 30 to 50% plant-based content - with a 70% version already being prototyped.
Despite being made from corn, seeds, tree bark, castor beans and other agricultural waste (with very little effect on the food chain) our Decovery® resin delivers a performance that is at least equal to that of conventional acrylic paints, while enabling a carbon footprint reduction of up to 34%. Which is why our customers – and their customers – are now using Decovery® to deliver a fine, durable finish in everything from kid’s furniture to walls and wood.
Why choose Decovery® ?
Decovery® gives you a performance equal to or exceeding traditional waterborne acrylic paints and alkyd paints.
Decovery® aims to reduce the levels of organic chemicals and other toxins in paint to ensure a safer, healthier environment.
Fossil-based paints are a major cause of climate change. Which is why Decovery® contains mainly plant-based material.
Today, Decovery® is already being used to create eco-friendly paint, lacquers and stains across a wide range of interior and exterior applications – with potential for many more. From building & construction to furniture, Decovery® resin delivers a durable, dependable performance. It’s easy to apply – for both professionals and regular consumers alike and comes in a variety of grades from low-to-zero VOCs, with between 30-50% plant content depending on the application.
