Paints, varnishes and plasters

To protect materials against attack, destruction and biodegradation by microorganisms, LANXESS offers the paints and coatings industry a comprehensive biocide range of high-performance preservatives and sustainable optimisation of your products.

In-Can Preservation

By adding our biocides in the production of water-based paints, you protect your products effectively against spoilage by microorganisms, decay and decomposition.

Dry-Film Protection

Our film preservatives protect coatings such as paints and plasters in the dry-state against attack by algae, fungi and lichens. These biocides have a very low solubility in water, so they are not leached by the weather.
