Prisum Coatings Canada created an innovative eco-friendly, allergy-free paint with a zero-carbon footprint that performs just as well as its acrylic counterparts. Developed in conjunction with industry partners and the Industrial Research Assistance Programs, this next generation soybean based paint technology provides consumers with a bio preferred option. The coating industry represents a three-trillion-dollar global market. With retailers like Lowe's stocking their product in 2017 and agreements signed with paint manufacturers around the world, Prisum Coatings has the potential to generate a new, expanded market for Ontario soy products and soya crop development.
