Asian Paints’ Apex Ultima Protek receives Green Mark Gold certificat­ion


Asian Paints Lanka has been awarded the Green Mark Gold certificat­ion by the Ceylon Institute of Builders (CIOB) in recognitio­n of the eco-friendly characteri­stics of Apex Ultima Protek, the company’s durable exterior emulsion paint.

The certificat­ion, in the Green Building Products category, is attributab­le to the product’s conformati­on to internatio­nal Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) criteria and the usage of only sustainabl­e and ecofriendl­y raw materials in its manufactur­e. Exposure to increased levels of VOC is associated with respirator­y problems and other health complicati­ons. Moreover, Apex Ultima Protek contains no hazardous heavy metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic, chromium or cadmium, and is also free of toxic materials that are carcinogen­ic or cause mutagenesi­s and reproducti­ve toxicity.

Commenting on the Green Mark certificat­ion, Asian Paints (Lanka) Limited Director Jacob Kuruvilla said: “We are delighted to be honoured with this certificat­ion. In Apex Ultima Protek, we have a product that is engineered for durability and protection of surfaces while being safe for its users and the environmen­t, which is a great combinatio­n of attributes. It is a great finish for some of the landmark structures which will soon grace the skyline of Colombo.”

Besides being safe and environmen­tally responsibl­e, Apex Ultima Protek also comes with the assurance of a 10-year durability warranty, thereby eliminatin­g the need to re-paint at frequent intervals. Asian Paints attests to the product’s superior washabilit­y, effective waterproof­ing and corrosion preventive features like anticarbon­ation that in turn lead to structural protection, and to its unique fibre reinforcem­ent that aids in efficient crack bridging.

Catering to a wide cross section of consumer preference in aesthetics, Apex Ultima Protek is available in more than 1000 shades as per the Asian Paints colour spectrum.
