Sustainable coatings and finishes are here with Decovery®

As an architect or designer dare to design with plant-based paint

Whether you’re designing furniture, interiors or buildings, you need strong foundations - and that starts with the materials you choose. While paint is often one of the last elements to be applied to a product, the materials you choose can make a long-lasting difference - to the health of people; to the planet; and of course, to long-term performance. Discover Decovery® a family of plant-based resins for paint that are proven to perform.

Why design with paints based on Decovery®?

The idea of returning home to walls and furniture painted with crude oil isn’t a very pleasant one. But still many coatings in the markets are largely made from fossil-based oils…this is closer to reality than many people might think. It’s time for a change with Decovery®! 

Decovery® ingredients are partially made from plants instead of crude oil with no compromise on quality. Which is why they are now being used in some of the world’s best (and best-known) paints.
