BOYSEN KNOxOUT


BOYSEN® Paints are 100% Lead Free

January 14, 2010

In keeping with the company’s commitment to produce safer and more environmentally friendly paint products, all BOYSEN® paint products coming out of its factories, whether water or oil-based, are lead free. BOYSEN® voluntarily phased out its last product that contained lead which is the Red Lead Primer in 2007 and has worked steadily since then to ensure that all of its paint products now and in the future will not use raw materials with lead content such as lead or chromate based pigments or lead driers.

BOYSEN® Paints was also the first Filipino paint manufacturer to introduce mercury free latex paint in the country back in the late 1970s. Since then, BOYSEN® has been an innovator in  introducing environmentally friendly paint technologies on a national and regional level. It was the first company in Southeast Asia to introduce a water-based metal primer (BOYSEN® Primeguard™) and a water-based acrylic epoxy paint (BOYSEN® Acqua Epoxy™).

In line with new international standards on volatile organic compound (VOC) levels for paint, BOYSEN® has introduced low VOC paints such as BOYSEN® Healthy Home™ with Microban® antibacterial protection and Virtuoso™ Silk Touch™, the first paint in the world with both Teflon® non-stick technology and Microban®. In 2009, BOYSEN® introduced KNOxOUT™, the first air cleaning paint in the world with CristalActiv photocatalytic technology that effectively transforms painted areas into an air purifying surfaces that helps protect people from the ill health effects of air pollutants such as nitrogen oxides (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Pacific Paint (BOYSEN®) Philippines, Inc. and its contract manufacturer Atlantic Coatings, Inc. are the first and only paint companies in the Philippines to be accredited Responsible Care®, the global chemical industry’s environment, health and safety initiative to drive continuous improvement in performance in these areas. Its manufacturing facility is also the only plant in the country that is ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004, and OHSAS 18001:2007 certified; signifying that the plant’s quality, environmental and occupational health and safety management systems are in accordance with the highest international standards.
