The Swan eco-label awarded to Tikkurila's industrial coating is a concrete indication that it is possible to develop industrial coatings that meet sustainability standards without compromising functionality or quality.

Reducing the amount of solvents in its products became one of Tikkurila Sverige AB's objectives as many as 15 years ago. Now the company is launching Sweden's first Swan eco-labeled coating system for industrially primed wooden panel.

Tikkurila Sverige considers the Swan Ecolabel awarded to its industrial coating a concrete indication that it is possible to develop industrial coatings that meet sustainability standards without compromising functionality or quality.

“We have been actively working for the environment for years, and are proud of our efforts. Among other things, we focus on ways to save natural resources and reduce carbon dioxide emissions and waste. We also continue developing and bringing to the market environmentally conscious and sustainable products. The fact that a new coating system for industrially primed panel was awarded the Swan label is a recognition for our commitment to environmental matters and courage to think outside the box,” says Elisabet Sahlin, Environmental Manager at Tikkurila Sverige AB.

The system includes the Tikkurila Pinja Protect S primer and the Alcro Bestå Täckfärg or Beckers Perfekt Akrylat Plus coatings.
