In an exclusive interview with The Voice, Van Der Berg stressed that although Plascon faces stiff competition from similar enterprises, they will not compromise on quality by manufacturing cheap paints.
At the launch, Plascon proudly unveiled its new high-quality mining enamel topcoats, which have been specifically designed for the mining industry.
The range includes interior paints, for decorative and protective finishes and exterior coats, for mild and galvanised steel as well as timber and masonry.
The lead-free, quick drying topcoats are available in 5 litres, and come in a range of colours, including white, black, medium yellow, signal red and brilliant green.
