Better exterior house paints
A study of Nordic exterior house paints, all given good scores in a test by Folksam Insurance company, will be presented at the SLF congress in Copenhagen. One of the key findings is that there are many ways to formulate a high-performance house paint. A balance of several features such as adhesion, water absorption and flexibility is greatly influenced by the choice of the binder. An open mind and new approaches to formulation are a good starting point when formulating new paints using the latest technology.
Gun Lundsten will demonstrate to you how to minimize undesirable features such as water uptake while allowing the film to breathe. This opens up new opportunities to protect our beautiful Nordic wooden houses. This technology has been developed and tested in Finland for demanding Nordic conditions.

No to stains and tannins
Check out our solutions for high-quality interior paints. Even the toughest wine and coffee stains are easy to remove when the paint is formulated with CHP 536. Watch this demonstration by local students to see for yourself!
Did you know that wood knots contain more than a hundred times more extractives compared to stem wood? These compounds are potential sources for discoloration of the paint film. This phenomenon is easy to avoid though! A primer containing CHP 581 chemically binds the tannins to the paint film, allowing the topcoat to do its job without discoloration.
