It is eco-friendly and suitable for use on any type of exterior surface. The special formula used in the paint makes it to dry quickly and each coating of paint provides superior adhesion. The paint is resistant to alkali and water and retains its colors for long time

The Trillion Super Strength Colorant, a new product from the company, is an eco-friendly and VOC-free colorant system that provides lasting color performance. The Trillion-tinted coatings have high level of hiding power over other types of tinted materials and provide improved scrub resistance. The colorant can be used with both alkyd and latex paint coatings. The colorant program improves color intensity and surface coverage of all types of paints.
