Architectural coatings

Binders for superior low-emission and serious performance

Indoor and outdoor, Synthomer sets new standards in performance with an extended range of both water-based and solvent-based architectural resins used in the formulation of primers, paints and coatings that protect architectural surfaces, while enhancing their aesthetics.

Synthomer binders meet the industry’s increasingly demanding environmental standards without compromising on application properties or durability.

Our acrylic and vinyl copolymer dispersions are low-VOC, low-odour and APEO-free. They also offer outstanding pigment-binding capacity and allow you to create highly filled cost-efficient formulations that require less TiO2 to achieve excellent hiding.


Benefits for your architectural coatings

  • Broad range of acrylic and vinyl copolymer dispersions for precise requirements.
  • Cost-efficiency savings requiring less TiO2 for excellent hiding (EN 13300 class 1 and 2).
  • High scrub resistance for easy cleaning and excellent appearance.
  • APEO-free for environmental responsible paints.
  • Low-odour and low-VOC for a healthy and attractive indoor environment.
  • High durability means your customers will appreciate the quality of your paints.
  • Formulate products compliant in accordance with Blue Angel regulations.
