    "Only the best is good enough"

    Eric van Meerten
    Ralston Colour & Coatings

    Cosmetic and technical aspects play a big part in developing a tinting system. Colour is the starting point, but it is important to make sure the unique outdoor durability and weatherproof properties and other qualities of the colour product are the least affected. Much research and development goes into this. Ralston’s colour paste and R&D department closely follow the latest developments in technology. Because only the best is good enough.

    All Ralston colourants are in-house developed and manufactured in multiple series for water-borne or solvent containing systems, suitable for both in-plant and Point of Sales tinting systems. In line with our sustainability philosophy the colourants are VOC-low or even VOC-free. The colourants are module-based for maximum application flexibility.
