SustainCare

SustainCare

Stricter EU environmental legislation means that the wood industry is in need of more sustainable coating solutions and in consequence water-borne products in particular are becoming increasingly popular. In the past, exterior wood oils have been solvent-borne products, but General Paints has developed a complete water-borne wood care range, which offers many advantages over older solvent-borne products in respect of performance, application, health and safety and environmental properties.

The innovative SustainCare range answers the needs of the wood care industry and its end-users with a proven track record in protecting wood in a variety of applications, extending the lifetime of this often praised building material because of its strength, flexibility, toughness and appearance.
