Wattyl announces their Colour Forecast, new BIM tool and highlights GECA certification at DesignBUILD 2019
At DesignBUILD 2019, an informative colour trends presentation took place at the Wattyl booth, where attendees not only got the chance to receive a complimentary color scanner, but also gather a better understanding of the latest trends in design, fashion and lifestyle.
Wattyl produces a broad range of paints, varnishes, lacquers and special purpose protective coatings. Their products are used in the Australian domestic, commercial and industrial markets, which makes their colour trends reports especially notable. The 2019 Colour Forecast explores colours that range from sensory darks to ones associated with high expectations. It also explains and explores how simplicity will be celebrated in both aesthetics and constructions, while minimalism will continue to flourish through the use of colour and tactility and design instills emotion.
The event also showcased Wattyl’s introduction to BIM via provision of high-quality Revit material. This new BIM tool includes the Wattyl Colour Designer library and Granosite texture range. It provides a library that is comprised of render-ready, correctly scaled Revit Materials that schedule efficiently. These materials are then applied to Generic Model Swatches to assist in usage and display. This tool will allow users to increase the ease in which Revit users can design, document and specify Wattyl’s products within the Revit environment.
Lastly, GECA (Good Environmental Choice Australia) is Australia’s only independent, not-for-profit, multi-sector sustainability and environmental certification program, and there are multiple products certified by Wattyl Australia. Since there are numerous elements that make paint environmentally preferable, Wattyl’s efforts to create a selection of interior products that are GECA and GBCA verified for Green Star projects are especially notable. These products underscore the company’s commitment to global best practice, environmental performance and safe manufacturing.
With an entire line of paints, primers, finishes and decorative paint products, there’s a reason Wattyl has grown to become one of Australia’s most loved paint brands. To find out much more about their innovative products, visit their site.
