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.
