The coatings the professionals use

Since its inception in 1946, Resene has forged an enviable reputation of excellence and quality in manufacturing products designed to meet the demanding standards of architectural and building industry professionals.

Today, that reputation is the cornerstone of the company's continued success. Since its introduction of waterborne paint to a market starved of quality products in the 1950's. Resene has developed a range of paint and specialist coating products for residential and commercial buildings, marine, heavy industrial and automotive use that are second to none. Many products have been developed as a creative answer to a client's problem. Most have set new standards for other manufacturers. All are the result of intensive research and testing.

Resene Total Colour System

New Zealand's harsh marine environment and high levels of damaging ultraviolet rays quickly expose the limitations of overseas colour systems. As a result of this early discovery, Resene developed the truly innovative Resene Total Colour System, based on sophisticated technology, to provide the necessary protection against the elements.

Colours come and go with changing trends. Flexibility in colours, colour tools and colour scheme development is paramount. The Resene Total Colour System offers this flexibility through a wide range of colour services, from colour tools such as colour charts through to special colour matches and complete colour scheme development by specialised staff.

All simplify colour selection for professional specifiers, commercial and retail customers alike.

Sophisticated tinting technology enables Resene to produce durable colour options that remain true to colour long after they have been applied, including the integral tinting of a wide range of textured and specialist coatings. The Resene Total Colour System provides for innovative tinting options in an interlinked full range of decorative and protective coatings allowing for the same spectrum of colours to be achieved in a wide variety of products
