HARLEQUIN Paints was started in 1999 by three people passionate about paint and the environment. A chemist, a designer and a paint applicator. An unusual combination but one that has proved highly successful. Harlequin Paints manufactures only water based products, and is the first company in South Africa to produce a range of solvent free paints. We also manufacture paint technique products, varnishes for furniture and floors, wood stains, custom made colour ranges for individual companies and scenic paint for the film industry. Our Premium Paint range is independently verified as MINIMAL VOC, which means it contains less than 3.0 gr per litre of VOC (volatile organic compound). This is classified solvent free. As an ethically green company we strive for good quality product and excellent, informative service. Our paint is tinted at our factory and each batch is checked by ourselves to ensure it is perfect. Our aim is to inspire and encourage people to be as passionate about paint and the environment as we are. Choose your colour…… it will always be green.
