Frequently asked questions
The answer often depends on whom you ask. For example, some companies define ‘biobased’ as being a traditional non-bio product that’s manufactured using bio-friendly processes (for example non-fossil based energy sources). We do this at DSM but the significant difference with Decovery® is that the resin itself is made from bio-based materials, ie plants. This is why, to avoid confusion, we call it plant-based paint.
Non-renewable fossil feedstocks, like crude oil are not only becoming scarcer but they also contribute to climate change. By using plant-based materials that perform as well as (if not better than) fossil-based equivalents we unlock environmental benefits that reduce our overall ecological footprint. In markets like paint, for example, we see customers increasingly making this a key part of their decision criteria.
The short answer is yes. It delivers an excellent finish with outstanding
durability and no yellowing effect (as associated with traditional Alkyd-based) coatings. It’s easy to apply and use, contains zero-to-low VOCs, and delivers a carbon footprint reduction of up to 34% based on replacing crude oil with plants.
