DSM in Paint & Coatings
A new technology with strong benefits
We developed various routes to convert plant materials into high performance resins. Using a variety of renewable building blocks we are able to tailor each solution to specific customer and market needs. We currently use sugars, starches, natural oils and materials from trees and agricultural waste that do not compete with the food chain.
We have already succeeded in commercializing two plant-based options:
- Together with Italian paint manufacturer ICA Group we have jointly developed a new, environmently friendly paint called Iridea Bio. This newly developed paint is for industrial interior wood applications and takes ICA’s Iridea water-based paints to the next level of sustainability. Read how Decovery®Ttechnology in Iridea Bio paint combines high-performance standards with sustainability. Download the case study "A new standard in sustainable paint" or "A new horizon for sustainable coatings for interior wood".
- Top Benelux’s leading DIY retailer Maxeda using the inedible parts of the maize plant. In addition this technology means low toxins. Overall it is great for the envirionment. Also, thanks to the technologies developed at DSM, paints using Decovery® are high-quality and are highly durable.
