Every groundbreaking project began with a design vision. As architects and designers gain greater design freedom with innovative products, our built environment evolves. Vibrant façades make bold statements, environmental innovations create a cleaner world, and the sky is the limit when it comes to colors and unimaginable effects.

Valspar is proud to take part in this innovation. We are constantly amazed and dazzled by the monumental projects our coatings help bring to life. We have seen urban infill projects breathe new life into downtowns, dream homes take form, and buildings withstand extremely harsh climates with durable coatings.

From prismatic coatings with mica flakes to graffiti-resistant coatings to coatings with a crinkle finish, Valspar scientists help create the impossible. Our commitment to testing ensures a high level of performance, enabling us to create coatings that meet or exceed expectations for performance and durability. In fact, Valspar even makes coatings that can withstand some of the harshest environments on earth, such as salt spray in coastal settings and intense exposure to ultraviolet rays.

Our goal is to remove barriers for greater design freedom and help bring architectural visions to life.
