How Does Painting Contribute To Sustainable Development?
Without protection, our cities and houses along our home streets would deteriorate, and without colours, our homes and environments would look bleak. Painting has a positive effect on our surroundings and its aesthetics. Paints make our living environment more beautiful and increase our well-being in a number of ways. Paints also protect surfaces from premature ageing, rotting, rust and corrosion. A longer service life reduces the load on the environment and creates savings in costs and natural resources since structures do not have to be replaced so often. Surface treatment can also make surfaces more hygienic and easier to clean, increase water vapour permeability, and improve fire-retardation and water and chemical resistance.
