Durga natural paints are the result of research

Enamels, varnishes, paints, impregnating agents ...

To create a truly and completely natural product, you need years of research, especially when this product must guarantee absolute quality, must match and surpass similar products resulting from the petrochemical industry.
We have discovered that it is very important to use completely natural and cobalt, and laboratory research has made it possible to produce natural driers based on Manganese and Zinc, completely free of cobalt and other heavy metals beyond that from mineral spirits and components of petrochemical origin.

Durga has solved all production problems and has moved on to the production of natural siccants independently Manganese and Zinc, which also represent a technically better choice than cobalt and zircon io which are particularly suitable for use with synthetic resins but not with the use of linseed oil.
Components of Durga natural driers: metallic soap (Mn or Zn) of resin of pine (ManganeseAbetate and ZincAbetate) dissolved in linseed oil and pure gemstone turpentine.

Another research object is that of treating the water used in the formulations of natural paints and varnishes. Here too, nature can replace industrial synthesis. In fact, well-purified water eliminates the need for preservatives such as hypochlorite, formaldehyde or ammonia.
< span> To offer a further guarantee we have adopted the sanitation of the containers with self-produced silver electrochemically and stabilized with plant extracts of local medicinal plants (thyme, oregano, horsetail).

Not only that, Durga has launched new UV filters on the market and it has improved resistance against blue molds ... and all this without the use of harmful organic biocides. Silver in very low concentrations together with zinc salts incorporated in the protective film of outdoor wood paint products it allows to reduce the risk of the formation of blue molds in outdoor environments rich in vegetation and humidity which pose a threat to wood.

Furthermore zinc is an excellent filter UV which guarantees greater durability of the protective films.
If with boron salts we protect the structural timber from fungal degradation and xylophagous insects (Canadian solution), with these further innovations we protect even more the aesthetic aspect of wood finishes without having to use dangerous biocides, for man and the environment, and often characterized by a limited duration of protection over time.

When we say that our paints are natural we have good reasons not to be afraid of being denied.
