The Sikkens name has stood for quality in coatings for more than two centuries. In 1792, Wiert Wilem Sikkens, began manufacturing paints and varnishes for his family store in the Dutch trading centre of Groningnen. Today, Sikkens is a multinational brand and our passion for developing the best decorative coatings has seen us become market leaders throughout Europe, North America, Asia and Australia.
Throughout our history, we have been set on outperforming the rest in every way – from design to product, from idea to execution. Sikkens inspires architects, designers, painters and DIYers with our many tools and collections. We also provide expert advice on trends and decor for interior and exterior applications.
Working together with our customers to solve the challenges they face, is one of our specialties. Sikkens specially developed formulas provide the answer to the demand for a transparent, high quality coating that will enhance the natural attractiveness of wood and provide the optimum level of protection in all situations. It is one of the first innovative woodcare ranges that is microporous allowing the timber to breathe while repelling unwanted moisture.
With over 200 years in the field, our goal is to continue delivering the best products, service and experience for our customers. Sikkens is a brand of AkzoNobel, the leading global paints and coatings company and a major producer of specialty chemicals.
