The new paint is based on DSM’s revolutionary Decovery bio-based technology.
The resin is one of the key components that determine the characteristics of a paint. By using the Decoveryresin technology platform DSM and PPG developed a resin which met the specific needs that PPG had envisioned for Sigma Air Pure.
With the Decoverybio-based resin technology platform, DSM enables paint manufacturers to develop high performance sustainable paints. By using a variety of renewable ingredients, DSM can tailor each solution to specific customer and market needs.
With Sigma Air Pure paint, the professional – and consumer market embraces renewable bio-based resins for indoor paints.
The Decoveryresins are made from renewable resources such as sugars, natural oils, and starch from corn and agricultural waste. These natural materials replace for a large part the fossil ingredients that traditionally constitute the binder resin of both solvent borne and waterborne paints.
DSM’s Decovery platform offers sustainable alternatives for conventional paint resins without compromising on quality and performance. In addition, since Decoveryresins are low in VOCs and use innocuous ingredients, paint made with such resins provide a safer and healthier environment.
