Showing our true colours with greener paints

Beauty without sustainability is only surface deep

As a distinctly South African brand, with deep roots in the KZN Midlands, Dekade has a strong connection with the environment. Dekade is dedicated to creating a product that captures the splendour of our natural surroundings whilst leaving an enduring and sustainable legacy on the environment.

Great efforts have been made to reduce our products’ environmental impact, without compromising on Dekade’s superior quality.

Innovative manufacturing techniques have enabled Dekade to produce paint that is lead-free, has low odour and contains lower Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

VOCs are chemicals which are emitted as gases when certain products (including certain paints) are used. One source of VOCs are the solvents used in solvent-based paints to control drying time and application properties.

These may cause adverse short and long-term health effects. The importance of choosing a low-VOC paint is particularly relevant when selecting an interior paint. Studies have revealed that some VOC emissions can be as high as two to five times stronger inside than outside.

Dekade’s water-based paints are non-toxic and biodegradable, helping us improve air quality and preserving and protecting the environment for future generations.

Help us care for our natural habitat and inquire about Dekade’s top quality range of water-based paints that are not only friendlier to the environment, but to your family too.
