Painting our world greener

    • Climate

      Our products are, by nature, sustainable as they prolong the service life of structures and equipment, and so help reduce their overall environmental impact.


      Over the years, we have developed many highly durable coatings that further extend the lifetime of the surfaces they protect and reduce the need for maintenance and re-coating. But we believe that a prolonged life is not enough. We focus on developing coatings that help both our customers reduce their impact on the climate and make good business sense.


      We are also continually working to reduce the environmental impact of our own operations. At our production facilities, for example, we salvage and re-use all recyclable waste, including chemical waste. If waste is not recyclable, we dispose of it in a socially responsible manner that limits its impact on the climate.

    • Reducing energy consumption

      The amount of energy the world consumes has a direct impact on greenhouse gas emissions, especially carbon dioxide (CO2). We concentrate on developing advanced solutions that help our customers reduce the amount of energy they consume.


      We produce energy-conserving products, such as Contex Thermoguard, an exterior wall coating that reflects solar energy in the infrared spectrum. When painted on buildings in the Middle East, Contex Thermoguard has proven to reduce air conditioning costs by an average of 5 percent.


      And, in order to reduce energy consumption from our own operations, we monitor energy use at all our production units and take measures to reduce energy consumption whenever possible.

    • Reducing VOC

      Reducing VOC

      Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are frequently found in coatings and solvents, and during the evaporation process, these VOCs are released into the atmosphere. In large concentrations, some VOCs are harmful to human health and damaging to the environment. Reducing the amount of VOC in paints and coatings is an ongoing challenge.


      We are committed to developing low-solvent waterborne products that contain minimal VOC. Topaz Zero, for example, is a range of interior coatings that contain no hazardous chemical compounds, but still provide a magnificent long-lasting finish and beautiful texture. It helps improve the air quality in indoor spaces, resulting in healthier environments.


      In addition, each year we successfully reformulate a number of coatings to reduce VOC content even further.

    • Reducing hazardous materials

      Conventional paints and coatings often contain hazardous materials, such as lead, Alkylphenol Ethoxylates (APEs) and formaldehyde. We have made it a top priority to reduce harmful materials from our products as much as possible, and much of our research and development is committed to this end.


      All our Decorative products are now lead-free, for example, and in 2015 we successfully phased out lead from our entire product assortment. We also introduced a new lead-free tinting system for industrial and marine products and are committed to removing lead from all our products worldwide.
