How Is Fine Paints of Europe Paint Different Than Standard Paint?

While Fine Paints of Europe paint contains the same overall categories of ingredients, it’s different from standard paint because of the quality of those ingredients.

When paint is manufactured with inexpensive filers and other ingredients of lesser quality, you’re left with a paint that simply gets the job done. It may coat the surface you desire, but the results are a bit lackluster. It doesn’t last more than a few years in most cases before the surface needs to be recoated, and the original finish itself isn’t as brilliant.

With paints that originated in The Netherlands, you see only the highest-quality resins and finely ground pigments in large concentrations throughout the paint gallon. There are also never any inexpensive fillers used. This makes for richer colors, better overall appearance of the painted surface, and increased durability and longevity of that painted surface. High-quality paint means much more time between needed touch-ups and a longer duration of brilliant finish.

The History of Dutch Paint

For almost two centuries, the Netherlands has led the world in paint production. Though the size of the country is not large, more than 120 paint manufacturers call it home. The world’s largest paint manufacturer, Akzo Nobel, is just one of those 120.

Toward the end of the 18th century, there were a host of artists who resided in the Netherlands; among them were Vermeer and Rembrandt. These artists wanted paints that would stand the test of time. So, Dutch entrepreneurs set to work to create paint that would be what the artists wanted and needed to create their masterpieces and help them remain vibrant through the years. By 1790, the right formula of oils and pigments was discovered, and high-quality Dutch paint was born.

FPOE vs. Benjamin Moore
