We’ve got you covered

When it comes to coating solutions it’s hard to look beyond the resin. It’s the engine of a coating; the backbone of a lacquer, the heart & soul of a paint or ink. Over the years our innovations in high-performance resin technologies have made a real difference to the way coating solutions perform, look and feel for our customers - and their customers. At DSM our technology toolbox is broader than any you will find. Most importantly, this bright science is supported by a global team with the insight and experience to bind it all together. Much like a resin, in fact. The result: increasingly sustainable coating solutions that benefit people, planet and profit - both today, and in the future. 

No matter how tough the challenge, we’ve got you covered – wherever in the world you are. That’s our binding commitment to you.

Sustainability drives us

Sustainability is an omnipresent and often misused word. At DSM it’s a value that sits at the heart of everything we do. Specifically, it means creating products that safeguard human health; that lower carbon footprint and tackle climate change; and that minimize our use of precious resources. With our growing portfolio of coating resins we’re well on the way to achieving all three.

How do VOC emissions stack up in China?

The move from solventborne to more sustainable waterborne resins is picking up pace. Based on a (2017) figure of 3.1m industrial containers in China, VOC emissions have been reduced from 160,000 tons to 15,000 through the DSM-chaired Waterborne China Platform (WBCP).  

China reaps the benefits of powder coating

As a leader in powder coating resins, we’re now deeply involved in discussions to shape two different nation coating standards in China aimed at driving sustainability and higher quality – especially in the fast-growing green construction industry.

No matter what the application, substrate or technology… there’s a good chance our team can help you.
