As the world’s largest paint company, AkzoNobel has been adding color to life for generations. We understand just how important color is in people’s lives – so it only makes sense that we take that knowledge of color and coatings technology and apply it to the kinds of products that enrich our lives. In our “Lifestyle” segment, we  are a leading provider of coatings for plastic and glass containers and packaging for cosmetics, perfumes, make-up, and many other personal care items; we paint the high-impact plastics used for motorcycles, golf carts and motorcycle helmets; you’ll find our coatings on skis and ski bindings, on the golf balls of many of the best-known golf ball manufacturers, and on a wide range of plastic items like electrical switches, buttons, signs, badges, and credit cards.
