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 which are not competing with the food chain.
We have already succeeded in commercializing one plant-based option, for 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.
