São Paulo Laboratories, Brazil

Our coatings and construction laboratories aligned with pigment specialists offer you a reliable platform to accelerate and grow your business in Brazil and South America.

In 2016, IMCD Brasil opened its first coatings laboratory to offer technical support to its customers and best-in-class principals. In 2017, we gathered the expertise of the pigments team to meet the local demand for colorful formulations in Brazil and South America. Two years later, we have opened a new construction laboratory that together with the coatings facility enables us to serve the industrial coatings, decorative paints, printing inks, construction and adhesives and sealants markets.
