Creating a greener world requires thinking outside the box and exploring new ways of creating the products we need. This is precisely the thinking that went into creating Valspar coatings with biorenewable resources. Unlike fossil fuels, these materials are readily available.

Valspar sees a bright future in using biorenewable and recycled materials to help cut waste and reduce the use of virgin materials. We have used recycled biorenewables such as vegetable oil instead of fossil fuels to make polyester resins.

In fact, Valspar was the first to use biorenewable materials in an interior coating system and in backers. These economical coatings are at the forefront of innovation. With a high solids content, our biorenewable coatings offer excellent coverage and ease of application. They are free of heavy metals and can be applied to a variety of metal substrates for numerous interior uses.

Inspired by innovation, Valspar is leading the way in developing green coatings. We are setting an example for other companies to follow.
