Tikkurila has over 60 years of experience in providing high-quality coatings for agricultural, construction and earthmoving (ACE) equipment, with some of our customer relationships as long as our background in the industry. Our coating solutions for ACE are proven to have excellent colour and gloss stability combined with high corrosion resistance.
High standards requirements demand high-quality coatings
Coatings for ACE equipment have to meet many different requirements. The painted surface needs to resist abrasion and weathering in demanding climates and application areas, and the colour and gloss stability need to be of a very high quality.
Tikkurila has a strong history of providing time and energy-saving coating solutions that retain their colour and gloss over a long period of time. Our coating solutions also resist mechanical wear and weather (UV light, rain and snow). They are fast drying and are a perfect fit for fast production lines.
We also offer customised coating solutions that meet all manufacturers’ requirements and we have an almost unlimited colour range including metallic-effect colours.
Sustainable coating solutions for people and the planet
We are dedicated to developing solutions that support the well-being of people and the planet.
We have a full range of coatings for ACE that are water-borne, making them a more sustainable choice. Water-borne products have low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), so they release less emissions into the air.
Our product range also includes direct-to-metal (DTM) products with a high solids content, and even isocyanate-free products that are more environmentally friendly.
