Decorative house paint in the COTEC range is formulated to make use of the latest technology in water based resins and particularly to optimise the performance both from application and service expectations. COTEC decorative house paint has been used in New Zealand for 30 years and has built a huge reputation for quality. Sold mostly directly to professional painters, the growing acceptance by the public that paint from a smaller manufacturer can be as good as or better than others on the market has meant supplying the retail market also. COTEC decorative house paint is now available from a growing number of hardware chain stores, paint retail stores and independent paint resellers. To see the extent of our network have a look at the “find a reseller” page.

Cotec have a range of products to suit all requirements and suitable for all use areas when it comes to painting buildings.

Our decorative range has some “stand out” products that we know are as good as, or better than any currently on the New Zealand market. These products offer some real benefits to painters and home owner alike. Painters love the ease of use and the quality finish they can achieve and the knowledge that they can get this time and time again. Homeowners benefit from having painted surfaces that are resistant to marking, can be easily washed and will last.

Colour is the heart of decorative house paint and important to the enjoyment of the finished room and the ambiance created. COTEC off a full colour matching service or can supply paint to any colour from any colour system, card or fandeck.
