Future Environmental Consideration

We are currently funding a research and development programme in conjunction with Warrington Fire Research to develop a new paint system ahead of 2010 legislation regarding use of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) in paints and varnishes. This new system will not only maintain our position at the forefront of Class 0 specialist coatings, it will ensure we are also introducing environmentally friendly systems ahead of European Legislation.
