The standard in paint: Made from plants
Plant-based paint existed long before DSM – in fact, it’s been around for 17,000 years. In more recent times, we’ve seen a move from solventborne to waterborne resin and coating technology. But now, a new plant-based revolution is being ushered in by our bright minds at DSM.
Decovery® is a family of eco-friendly paint resins that contains anywhere from 30 to 50% plant-based content – with a 70% version already being prototyped. Despite being made from corn, seeds, tree bark, castor beans and other agricultural waste – with very little effect on the food chain – our Decovery® resin delivers a performance that is at least equal to that of conventional acrylic paints, while enabling a carbon footprint reduction of up to 34%. This is why our customers – and their customers – are now using Decovery® to deliver a fine, durable finish in everything from children’s furniture to walls, and wood.
Why choose Decovery®?
Decovery® gives you a performance equal to or exceeding traditional waterborne acrylic paints and alkyd paints.
Decovery® aims to reduce the levels of organic chemicals and other toxins in paint to ensure a safer, healthier environment.
Fossil-based paints are a major cause of climate change. Which is why Decovery® contains mainly plant-based material.
Today, Decovery® is already being used to create eco-friendly paint, lacquers and stains across a wide range of interior and exterior applications – with potential for many more. From building and construction to furniture, Decovery® resin delivers a durable, dependable performance. It’s easy to apply – for both professionals and regular consumers alike. It comes in a variety of grades, ranging from low- to zero-VOC, and has a plant content of between 30 and 50%, depending on the application.
