EPD document prepared for Polisan Exelans Flat Exterior Paint with registration number S-P-00740 has been registered and published in EPD Turkey and The International EPD System. Registered EPD document applies to all global markets.
This is a water-based, silicon, antibacterial, mold preventing, four season applicable matt exterior paint with lotus effect that can wash itself thanks to hydron technology. Its elasticity ensures that the capillary cracks on the surface are covered, which makes it resistant against any possible capillary crack formation on the surface. It protects surfaces against molds, fungi and mildew that may form in very moist environments. Allowing the surface to breathe, it prevents moisture from building up between interior and exterior walls and damaging both surfaces. It high water-repellency causes water droplets falling on the surface to leave the surface without being absorbed by the surface. It prevents sunlight from deforming and discoloring the paint film, assuring a longer lifetime. Its high resistance to alkalis allows it to be durable against damp weather conditions, moisture and salt water.
The Polisan brand is widely known in glue and paint sectors. The name is derived from polyvinyl acetate (PVA) glue and the word “sanayi” (Turkish for industry).
The founders of the company, the Bitlis family, started commercial operations in the 1920s as a merchandising firm until the establishment of a fabric painting and knitting business called Sark Mensucat. In 1964, they entered the chemicals industry with the foundation of Polisan Chemical, which produced emulsifier resins. In 1985, paint production had begun under the Polisan brand.
Polisan Kansai Boya’s most recent paint production and warehouse facility investment, which started in 2016 on 142,000 square meter land in the Gebze Chemicals Specialized Organized Industrial Zone, was completed in June 2018. Having started with a paint production capacity of 10,000 tons/year in 1985, Polisan Kansai Boya now has a capacity of 180,000 tons/year in 3 shifts at the former paint facility, which has now been relocated. Built to International Standards, the fully automated new facility has tripled the annual production capacity, rising it to 180,000 tons/year in a single shift. With the flexibility of working 3 shifts a day, without requiring additional investment spending, the annual production capacity of the new facility can rise to as high as 540,000 tons, which almost matches the size of Turkey’s total decorative market. The new facility was designed in order to receive a “Green Building Certificate” in an attempt to lead the transformation of the market in terms of sustainability and has become the 23rd production facility within Turkey to receive a LEED certification. This fully-automated facility is positioned as a regional production hub by Polisan’s Japanese partner Kansai Paint. Thereby, Polisan Kansai Boya is one step closer to its goal of becoming a global brand.
Polisan has ISO 9001, ISO 10001, ISO 14001, ISO 18001, ISO 50001 and ISO 27001 standards certifications. With the renewal of their EPDs, Polisan once again shows its commitment to the environment.
