The portfolio also includes two products that meet EN13501-1 classification for fire performance; SILOKSAN ANTI-CARB a matt, waterborne paint for concrete and TIMANTTI CLEAN a semi-matt, waterborne emulsion with anti-microbial properties.

Choosing the right paints for any project is simple; and a technical advisory service ensures the specification is the very best one.

These include specialist finishes such as anti-microbial or wipeable, suitable for bathrooms, hallways and other high wear areas. One of the most versatile and popular paints is the Futura Aqua range which can be used inside and outside, on both wood and metal. It includes a high gloss option (Futura Aqua 80) that water-based competitors have found hard to replicate.
