Research and Technology



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 our products' performance on various parameters - to make them more durable, adhesive, washable, and resistant to weathering and corrosion.


Our approach to aesthetics is two-fold. We strive to create the best and most extensive colour profiles and matchless finishes. We also study fashion, trends, and colour forecasts to tweak our product range.


Asian Paints Berger is committed to reviewing and re-engineering formulations and manufacturing processes continuously, 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.


Creating quality

- Our range of interior products has the lowest VOCs in their class.

- Our exterior products are specially formulated with exceptional anti-corrosiveness, anti-carbonation, weather resistance, and high thermos-plasticity, making them ideal for challenging Middle Eastern conditions.

- Our products are non-toxic. They are free from heavy metals, lead, and formaldehyde.

- Our R&T has resulted in a range of highly washable products with excellent stain-cleansing properties.

Facilitate change

We have dedicated R & T laboratories for different functions. These include laboratories for paint development and testing for architectural and industrial applications, microbiology laboratories, modern instrumentation laboratories, and resin and functional polymer development laboratories. The highlights of the Dubai unit are our quality assessment lab, development lab, daylight cabinet for colour matching, and scrub resistance tester.

A team of bright minds

Our state-of-the-art equipment is matched by the spark of human inspiration that has led to innovations and breakthroughs. We welcome the best talent and give our folks an atmosphere of inquiry and openness to thrive. Regular innovation sessions are held to generate ideas which are then vetted for feasibility and actioned.

Our scientists provide product development support for short-term business goals. They also work on long-term projects with an emphasis on developing improved chemistry platforms that make for better product functionality.

Committed to the future

To create excellence, we have invested substantially in R&T resources and infrastructure. In the years ahead, it will continue to hold the key to our performance.
