INNOVATION

TO ADD VALUE TO PAINTS

The manufacturers doing business in Brazil have a long track record of investment in innovation, consistently creating solutions that surprise and even dazzle potential buyers, with a decisive support from their suppliers.

Examples of the latest advances and research efforts can be seen every two years at the International Coatings Congress and International Exhibition of Coatings Industry Suppliers.
