Technology Is Our Driving Force

Our R&D teams focus on innovative technologies and sustainable development, creating water-based, high-performance products. With technical expertise, broad experience, and unwavering energy, we collaborate with universities and partners to develop new solutions. Around 20% of our products are less than five years old, and 20% of our staff work in R&D, ensuring ongoing success and resource conservation.

Handshake Chemistry


Alberdingk Boley has been at the forefront of sustainability long before it became a public debate. Our journey began in the 1970s with the development of water-based, solvent-free polymer dispersions. In the 1990s, we introduced polyurethane dispersions based on castor oil, followed by polyurethane dispersions based on linseed oil and our ALBODURĀ® series of castor oil-based polyols in the 2000s. Currently, we focus on expanding renewable resources in acrylic dispersion polymerization for diverse applications. Our legacy of pioneering sustainable solutions drives us to shape a greener future.
