Go green

During the month of June, it’s even easier being green. The Resene Paint it Green promotion sees $1 from every green 60ml testpot sold in Resene ColorShops donated to environmental charity Trees that Count. To date, the trees planted from the Resene Paint it Green programme have removed more than 1900 tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The Resene Eco.Decorator programme has separately reduced a further 1000 tonnes of carbon.

Seal of approval

Painting bathrooms or kitchens just got a lot easier with Resene Waterborne Sureseal – a low odour, waterbased, low VOC (volatile organic compounds) formula which is essential painting prep. It’s also perfect for tricky surfaces like baked enamel, glazed surfaces and even old Lockwood® varnish.

Winter is coming

Don’t put your DIY projects on hold during winter. Resene Wintergrade Additive makes it possible to paint in temperatures as low as 3°C. Simply stir into selected Resene waterborne paints to help the paint cure properly even in cold conditions, creating a smooth durable finish. Even better, your project will be ready for you to enjoy in warmer weather.
