As Australia’s largest owned paint supplier into the Commercial and Repaint markets, Baxta are experts in specialist systems consultancy in paints, textures and renders for tier one and tier two construction projects.

Pacific Fair Shopping Centre

At Baxta, we work with architects, builders, and painting contractors that require the best systems, products, and advice to ensure that building finishes, both interior and exterior, are correctly matched to the different substrates used throughout the project.

We do this through our array of top-quality products combined with our unique knowledge of and expertise in paints, renders and textures, and how they must be applied – as well as in what order – to the many different substrates used in the building industry.

Clients who work with us enjoy peace of mind in knowing that the substrates on their project have been coated with the correct systems using products that meet Australian standards, giving the new building excellent durability and lowering ongoing maintenance costs.

A unique product and service package

When you use Baxta products, you can be assured they are top quality: they are certified by the Australian Paint Approval Scheme (APAS), tested in a National Association of Testing Authorities, Australia (NATA) accredited laboratory, and meet Australian standards.

We also bring a unique package of value-added services to each project at no extra cost: 

  • Systems knowledge: Expert advice on the correct application system/sequence for every kind of building substrate. 
  • Pre-application inspection report: We inspect the whole project and document possible problems, difficult substrates, and potential colour issues. 
  • Specifications: We provide product/application/system specifications for all interior and exterior surfaces. 
  • Periodic inspections: During the coatings phase we carry out inspections to ensure correct film build, number of coats, use of expansion joints, and colour compatibility. 
  • 10-year or 15-year systems warranty: We provide our warranty on the coating systems used, not just a product warranty. 
  • Maintenance program: Our comprehensive, tailored maintenance program shows you how to get the full benefit from our coating systems, as well as warning signs to watch for.

  • The global and regional drivers are broadly aligned; political and economic uncertainty, climate change, sustainability, and of course, what a post-Covid landscape may look like.
  • While responses to this can be protective or reactive, for the purposes of medium-term colour choices, protective is the more dominant direction.
  • Protecting the planet through sustainable lifestyle choices and self-protection in the form of wellbeing trends has given rise to a surge of nature inspired colours.
  • Geographic colour interpretations are influenced by regional light and landscape, local materials, lifestyle, and culture.
  • There is also a notable nostalgia for a slower pace and simpler times; colours seen through a diffusing filter, desaturated and soft.
