Technology is our driving force.

Technological innovation is firmly embedded in the DNA of our company: Approximately a quarter of our 300 employees worldwide work in research and development, and half of our products are less than five years old. 

In the 1970s, long before the public debate on sustainability, Alberdingk Boley manufactured water-based binders that posed no health or ecological hazards and was able to establish itself on the world market. With our 1994 patented castor oil and linseed oil-based technology, a new generation of binders conquered the market.

Successes inspire us to new heights of achievement. The focus of our research lies exclusively in the aqueous phase; in addition, we explore the applicability of renewable raw materials like castor and linseed oils. The resulting synergies provide an excellent basis for our high-performance coating systems – and they still offer great potential that needs to be further explored. 

Customer requirements, market trends and environmental needs are the driving forces behind our innovative and responsive research. The results are new, functional products that guarantee success and a valuable competitive advantage to our customers.
