Start the New Year thinking Green!

At Kernow Coatings we are committed to conducting business in ways that both help protect our planet now and build a better, more ecologically aware future for generations to come.  Our Sustainability Vision has become a true focus of our manufacturing process.

Our main focus has become recycling which has many benefits such as conserving resources, saving energy, less landfill and cutting carbon emissions.

Our Research and Development Team are all working to ensure that recyclability is considered in the design criteria for products. Using creative formulation skills and in-depth knowledge gained in over 40 years in the coating industry, Kernow is at the forefront of aqueous coating technology. We can make water-based coatings so tough and durable there is no need to use other, more impactful to the environment chemistries.
