painting with water
DUM loves yellow, but we’re going green.
DUM’s new series of knockout water-based lacquer and stain colours contain no heavy metals, and ten times fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This means that they are ten times less damaging for the environment than conventional lacquers. By reducing these emissions, DUM is playing its part in making the world a shade greener – even though we still love yellow the most.
Featuring ten new colours in addition to natural and black, the palette runs the gamut of greens – from traffic green to leaf green to black green. You’ll find classic pink and wine red, light grey and dusty grey, black blue, and – of course – two variations of yellow: zinc yellow and honey yellow. The colours are deep and bold. Sometimes bright, sometimes subdued. But never boring.
Getting technical for a moment. The water-based lacquers and stains comply with the highest standards for scratch resistance, chemical resistance and fire safety. They even passed the extremely stringent Toy Safety Standard EN71-3:2013 with flying – ahem – colours.
