Sadolin – advanced technology underpinned by over 200 years of history
Renowned throughout the professional and DIY markets for offering the very highest possible standard of wood protection, products bearing the Sadolin name benefit from the most recent advances in coatings technology, yet at the same time boast a rich history and heritage stretching back over 200 years.
The Sadolin story is set in the harsh and unforgiving Scandinavian climate and the roots of this well respected brand can be traced back to 1777 when Swedish born Jacob Holmblad was granted royal permission to establish a textile dye works in Copenhagen. Nurtured by Jacob and handed down through the generations, this enterprise would eventually become a thriving paint and varnish business.
In 1912 Holmblad & Co merged the company with the Sadolin’s Farver company, founded just five years earlier by Gunnar Asgeir Sadolin. This young and experimental businessman was producing wax colours that were inspired by the fresh colours of Egyptian antiquities.
Heritage and innovation came together, and a hundred years later these two driving forces continue to underpin the Sadolin brand as it is known today.
Sadolin products use specially selected light-filtering pigments to promote longer-lasting colours.
Because Sadolin products are specially developed to weather naturally, applying a fresh coat requires only minimal preparation, reducing time, expense and labour.
Sadolin exterior products are designed to form a Microporous ‘jacket,’ which is both waterproof and allows the wood to breathe naturally. The benefit is greater, longer lasting protection for your wood.
Sadolin working in partnership with The CarbonNeutral® Company
Sadolin has a global vision of protecting the earth’s climate and since 2003 we have been proud to work with The CarbonNeutral® Company to offset our energy use.
One of the recent initiatives that we have chosen to reduce emissions through is a waste water biogas-to-energy project at a tapioca starch drying factory in Cholburi, Thailand. This project uses biogas to generate clean energy which is used onsite to power the factory and supply the local grid.
