RIGO Verffabriek is a Dutch family business that has been making paint, oil and varnish products since 1938. They have been doing this in IJmuiden from the very beginning. A sturdy harbor town with beach and ships, dunes and industry, and a character of tackling things and saying what you have to say. RIGO Verffabriek strives to do this as progressively and honestly as possible. As a result, the products are innovative and they use as many renewable raw materials as possible.
This results in the now renowned SKYLT technology, ROYL solvent-free oils, STEP water-based lacquers, EKODUR professional painter’s paint, and TOPLIN linseed oil stand paint, for example. And that is just a small selection of their offer. Making paint is a real human activity for them. And RIGO Verffabriek is proud of that. That is why they can say: RIGO Verffabriek is a platform for and by professionals. Together they realize the most beautiful products. Together they make Masterpiece.
From PU-varnish to BIO-oil
RIGO Paint Factory’s development of water-borne parquet varnishes in the seventies ran synchronous with the development of natural paints of the Aquamaryn brand. The processor’s health was leading, in combination with the idea to swop fossil base materials as much as possible with base materials from the present living nature. The latter line of thought has resulted in a complete assortment of paints under the Aquamaryn brand, based on renewable components. But it also resulted in ROYL BIO-OIL (previously Aquamarijn Corcol), since 1978, the first single-layer oil for parquetry and wooden surfaces, based on 100% vegetable oils, with excellent and long-lasting performance ever since.
SKYLT invisible parquet varnish
In 2003, RIGO Paint Factory developed their SKYLT technology, prompted by the wish to preserve the beauty of freshly sanded wood, but at the same time protecting it against outside influences.
SKYLT is an absolutely invisible water borne polyurethane floor varnish with the aspect of untreated wood.
In the meantime, millions of square meters of wooden floors have a SKYLT finish, and its aesthetics always keep amazing both the customer and the craftsmen who apply it.
ROYL OIL-2K Full charge within 24 hours
ROYL oil products are made on a 100% natural base, which may be coloured to taste. Applying is easy: the entire floor can be oiled and buffed dry in one session, and be fully charged after 24 hours. Nothing will evaporate from the ROYL oil products: what you see is what you get!
