At AkzoNobel, we create reliable and trusted coatings solutions that are safer for people and safer for the planet. It’s an approach we call People. Planet. Paint.

We strive to lead our industry by empowering people and reducing our impact on the planet, while delivering the most sustainable coatings solutions for our customers.

From waterborne technology for joinery and furniture, or UV technology for solid wood and resilient flexible flooring, to PU and AC coatings for kitchen cabinetry, we design and develop products with both customers and society in mind. Coatings with outstanding aesthetics and physical properties that also comply with regulations and have a reduced impact on the environment.
