Research and Technology
The Berger approach to work and innovation.
Our range of exterior and interior products, coatings and systems use the latest technology incubated in our labs.
Our R & T has four main pillars of focus :
Our team of researchers and technicians work to constantly improve the performance of our products on a variety of parameters - to make them more durable, more adhesive, more washable, more resistant to weathering and corrosion.
Our approach to aesthetics is two-fold. We strive to create the best and most extensive colour profile and matchless finishes. We also study fashion, trends and colour forecasts in order to tweak our product range.
Asian Paints Berger is committed to reviewing and re-engineering formulations and manufacturing processes continuously, in order to address environmental concerns.
Our products are formulated and extensively tested to better the standards laid down by regulating bodies such as ASTM and EXOVA UK.
