Curious to know more about our four innovation priorities?

We’re looking for solutions to more efficiently manufacture and deliver paint to our customers and help them improve their paint application process by making it more effective and efficient.


Asset protection
Our customers rely heavily on paint to protect surfaces and products. The expectations are high when it comes to longevity, chemical resistance and the need for predictive maintenance cycles.


Surface enhancement
Paint brings colors and effects to life. We want to bring our customers new ways of extracting more value from surfaces and products by adding new functionalities and/or making them responsive.


Environmental protection
We want to make a significant and long-lasting difference to preserve our planet beyond generations to come by stimulating a circular economy and offering our customers competitive and sustainable solutions without harmful substances.
