Founder and President Director of PT Propan Raya, DR. Hendra Adidarma Dipl. Chemiker, admitted that water-based paint (water based) is more environmentally friendly than solvent-based paint. In addition to not environmentally friendly, solvent based paint also smells stingy and has a VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) that is harmful to both the body and the environment. By switching to water-based paint, solvent emissions that are harmful to humans and the environment can be suppressed.
"It is our duty and responsibility to create an eco-friendly paint product, of good quality, and in accordance with international standards," said Hendra Adidarma, who completed his studies as a chemist at a German university.

"The new plant is scheduled to produce water based paint to an installed capacity of 100,000 tons per year, thus we have three factories with a capacity of 200,000 tons per year," said Rianto Adidarma.Some of PT Propan Raya products to be produced in this factory include Decorshield, Decorcryl, Decorlotus, Eco Emulsion, Ecoshield, Cheers, Ultraproof, Aqua Syntetic Enamel Gofast A-1000, AMrine PAINT, Metal Protective Coating, Polymer Flooring, Waterproofing, Multipurpose Acrylux , Waterbased Wood Finishing For IKEA, and many more.
