Sustainable products

Tikkurila is a pioneer in sustainable painting, surface treatments, and the use of colours – and we do this responsibly. 

We are also forerunners in the development of waterborne decorative products. Their share of sold products in terms of volume has already exceeded 80%. Our ability to use waterborne chemistry without compromising on performance is the result of comprehensive and extensive product research and development over several years. We drive sustainable beauty, well-being, and longer service life for surfaces. Our work and products use the limited resources of nature and society in a sustainable manner. 

Tikkurila’s paints and coatings are always optimised for their intended use. The intended use determines the required properties, which in turn determine the ingredients of the paint formula.

”The share of waterborne products is growing, especially in decorative paints”, Elisabet Sahlin, Sustainability Manager, Sweden.
