Wattyl Environmental Credentials

At Wattyl, our mission is to protect. This extends from our customers’ assets and businesses to the planet. Paint is everywhere, from homes to office walls, car parks and urban architecture, it infiltrates the air we breathe and can harm the environment and our health. That’s why we develop products that meet and exceed Australian and global eco certifications and standards. We also say no to landfill and are a proud supporter and founding member of Paintback, a world-first national disposal and recycling scheme.


Our GECA licences (PCV.2.2ii-2012 standard) cover a range of preparation and topcoat products, namely interior walls, ceilings and trims. These are recognised by ISCA and contribute to IS ratings. They also contribute to Green Star, WELL, NABERS and LEED.


We’re certified to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 17025:2017 quality standards. We also have APAS certified manufacturing units and product certifications. Plus, our laboratories are National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) accredited for compliance to ISO 17025:2017 – Testing to test surface coatings.
