Royal DSM is a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and sustainable living. By connecting its unique competences in life and material sciences, DSM is active in various market segments. Our purpose to create brighter lives is supported by our core value: Sustainability. Everything we do should contribute to a more sustainable world.
We are proud DSM has taken a leading role in the past in the transition from solvent borne to waterborne paints & coatings. Now, with Decovery®, DSM is starting a new revolution. In the past, the paint industry has made a major step forward on sustainability through the introduction of waterborne paints. Nevertheless, these waterborne paints still are for a large part fossil based. To fuel the next transition to plant-based paints & coatings, DSM has developed Decovery®, a new revolutionary technology which replaces fossil-based components by renewable materials.
Sustainability is increasingly becoming an important decision criterion for consumers in their buying behavior. Moving away from solvent-based paints made from fossil-based materials is the right thing to do. Why? Because every one of us has a vested interest in safeguarding the planet we all call home.
Through the unique plant-based Decovery® resin platform DSM aims to set a new, high performance standard in paint and reduce the total amount of fossil components. Decovery® solutions meet the high-performance requirements of our customers and enable them to offer a more sustainable paint to their customers, today and tomorrow.
