DSM and Italian paint manufacturer ICA Group have jointly developed a new, sustainable paint called Iridea Bio. It contains DSM’s Decovery® plant-based resin and was on display at the European Coatings Show in Nuremberg, Germany.
Collaboration - DSM and ICA Group
| A New, Sustainable Paint Made with DSM’s Plant-based Resin
This newly developed paint for industrial interior wood applications is the result of an extensive collaboration between DSM
and ICA Group. DSM’s ground-breaking Decovery resin technology takes ICA’s Iridea water-based paints to the next level of sustainability, which explains the name of the new Iridea Bio product line.
Safe and Sustainable
Decovery resins are made from renewable resources and combine typical acrylic performance with beneficial sustainability characteristics. The new Iridea Bio paint line provides for coatings that are more resilient, resistant to chemicals and lightfast than existing alkyd resins. In addition, it is safer to use and suitable for intensive industrial processing.
