Minimum Contents

Some of our products will have a minimum content noted beside the unit of measure. Our products are all canned in Finland and at the point of filling the volume in the can is 10% less than the unit of measure. This is the measured volume at the point of supply into the UK, therefore we need to place this figure on the can. Once the base paint arrives at one of our depots it is stored ready for tinting. We do not manufacture ready-made shades, we use tinting systems to make our colours which provides flexibility and colour accuracy. In order to manufacture the required colour, we need the spare volume for the colourant addition.
