PPG INDUSTRIES BRINGING INNOVATION TO THE SURFACE.

We use the term Ecological Solutions to refer to products whose manufacturing, purchase and use reduce the environmental and social impacts compared to other products. As a subsidiary of PPG, Prominent Paints is committed to manufacturing and marketing paint products that are 100% lead free, adhere to international best practices and recognise and promote the drive towards environmental sustainability. In other words our products are kinder by design, kinder to the environment and kinder to your health. In keeping with the Ecological Solutions philosophy Prominent Paints undertakes to offer and develop products that constantly raise and exceed the standard in this regard.

eco nfident solutions

The confidence in our ecological solutions is backed by solid research and development. PPG invests hundreds of millions each year in developing new and improved products, processes as well as adapting current technologies to new markets.

As a company that recognizes our responsibility to preserve and protect the global environment, our engineers, researchers and scientists share a profound understanding of environmental issues. To this end, we continuously work to design and manufacture products that help customers and consumers confidently choose products that reduce their environmental footprints and improve energy efficiency.

eco nomical solutions

At Prominent Paints, we believe that ecological solutions don't have to cost the earth. Which is why you'll find that while our products offer better than premium performance, they don't attract premium pricing.

Numerous green benefits such as high opacity levels mean that because thinner coats are used, less paint is required. The durability of our products also means that surfaces don't need to be recoated as often. High spread rates offered by our products also mean that less paint is required to cover a surface. Proof that when you're saving the earth, you can also save money.

eco centric solutions

Volatile organic compounds (VOC's) refers to organic chemical compounds which are emitted into the atmosphere and our living environments. VOC's are produced by manmade items as well as in nature. Although there is only a small amount of VOC's in paint, long term exposure to these compounds can have negative effects on one's health. The Ecological Solutions philosophy is Prominent Paints assurance that our low VOC products meet and exceed the strictest industry standards while still delivering premium levels of performance you expect from Prominent Paints.

Our water based colourants, unique in the South African market, further ensure that even after tinting, our products remain low in VOC's without compromising on the colour fastness.

As a member of the Green Building Council of South Africa our low VOC products adequately conform to the Greenstar Office v1 rating tool. But, we go far beyond industry and government standards by ensuring all our products are also lead free, AEOP free and formaldehyde free.

The benefits of Prominent Paints Ecological Solutions are multiple and far reaching.
