Why choose Akzonobel Wood Coatings?

Our industrial wood finishes are the cornerstone of our reputation for offering high-quality, robust coatings. Wood structures need to be resistant and robust to withstand elements such as wind, moisture, heat and others. Our systems have a proven legacy of improving overall quality and durability, while preserving the natural beauty and unique characteristics of different types of wood.

Choose from an expansive range of coatings, stains and colour systems for professional wood finishes, including waterborne, solventborne and 100% UV. The range of systems available is exhaustive and includes top-to-bottom wood coatings solutions, from primers to topcoats to hardeners, for an array of end uses.

Tested and trusted wood coatings

Every AkzoNobel Wood Coatings product undergoes rigorous testing and quality checks before being introduced into the market.

For our exterior building product coatings, this not only includes extensive lab analysis and testing, but also our market-leading global weathering programme, where we continuously test exterior wood coatings samples to the limit.

We are also recognised for the quality of support we provide to customers of all sizes through our teams of highly qualified sales and customer service representatives across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. In addition, we provide a wide range of product and application training and tools, along with an array of support materials.

Sustainable wood coating solutions

Many of our products are based on waterborne and 100% UV technologies and have a reduced environmental impact. Waterborne products are also low-VOC, non-flammable, and easier to clean up. All our products come with carbon footprint information, and we aim to have them certified to the latest standards. Our portfolio also includes solventborne solutions that are robust and easy to apply, with familiar application methods and excellent drying properties.

Our aim is to help brighten up homes and communities by bringing colour to people’s lives. We want to inspire our customers with unique wood finishes that are easy to implement in their production processes. Our global team of wood coating colour experts combine their industry experience with on-trend influences from fashion, architecture, art, and popular culture to identify new trends and directions in colour.
