PROBLEM SOLVING SOLUTIONS FOR COATINGS IN NEW BUILD AND RESTORATIONS
Being able to find coatings that last, provide protection and solve problems in the built environment is always a challenge. With Owatrol solutions we will explore these scenarios and provide solutions that are tailored to both new buildings and the renovation of older ones. Problems such as how to maintain exterior masonry substrates; How to make the coating last? Paints that work without stabilising solutions, saving time and money.

With Eco-Friendly products throughout our range of solutions, we are at the forefront of today’s coatings technologies.
