Artisan Enhancements:

Bio-Sustainable Products for a Cleaner, Greener Future.

Plant-based alternatives to synthetic-based products are the future for many industries. As government regulations become tighter and more leaders look to collectively reduce their environments carbon footprint, we believe bio-based products are a responsible step in the right direction. Together we can help to transform the types of plastic products being used, reduce waste, and promote the use of environmentally friendly, bio-sustainable paints and coatings, without comprising industry standards and commercial performance.

 Specializing  in innovative bio-chemisty.

Artisan Enhancements specialize in manufacturing and distributing high-performance, bio-sustainable professional decorative coatings. Our ability to manufacture our own products, gives us an advantage in selecting the types of ingredients that go into our products. We focus on ingredients derived from bio-sustainable, plant and mineral based bio-renewable resources.

Plant-based paints for a happier and healthier environment.

Biobased products are come from crops, plants and other renewable agricultural, marine, and forestry materials. Bio-based chemistry provides an alternative to conventional, potentially toxic, petroleum derived products.

 

Did you know that the majority of paints and coatings available on the market are made from non-renewable synthetic oils. Latex paints are basically man-made liquid plastics that dry to form a hardened plastic coating. Latex technology performs well but is outdated in terms environmental responsibilities, expectations and the advancement in bio-based chemistry and new performance capabilities.

Artisan Enhancementsâ„¢ products are either low VOC eco-friendly or manufactured using renewable resources (plant oils). Wherever possible we find ways to replace synthetic products with more natural alternatives. In some cases based on performance, this is not possible, but we always evaluate each situation individually with the goal of producing the greenest, cleanest possible end product.

Our paint formulations are licensed technology of Soyaoil Coatings Canada Inc., you might have come across the logo on our packaging. Soyaoil Coatings is the driving force behind the award-winning paint technologies we use to produce Artisan Enhancements™ products. For more information head over to www.soyaoilcoatings.com.
