The Polisan brand is widely known in glue and paint sectors. The name is derived from polyvinyl acetate (PVA) glue and the word sanayi (Turkish for industry).
PVA is also one of the raw materials of paint. Thus, Polisan’s industrial journey has been first producing the binder of paint (glue) and then the highest quality paint from this binder.
The founders of the company, the Bitlis family, started commercial operations in the 1920s as a merchandizing firm until the establishment of a fabric painting and knitting business called Şark Mensucat. In 1964, they entered the chemicals industry with the foundation of Polisan Chemical, which produced emulsifier resins. In 1985, paint production had begun under the Polisan brand. And during the next 33 years, the company went from strength to strength.
Annual production capacity that was 10,000 tonnes when first established is now 180,000 tonnes.
Polisan offers the widest range of products appealing to all price segments in the decorative paint market with more than 250 Polisan branded products in addition to package and color options.
“Elegance” premium interior paint is the market leader in its segment.
With the Turkey’s first equivalent to oil-based paint, its water-based gloss finishing coat sealed Polisan’s environmental, innovative and humane credentials.
Polisan has ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 standards certification.
Polisan developed the sector’s first water-based mixing machine offering retail customers the same quality as factory production.
Polisan developed the sector’s first interior paint with 7 superior properties and exterior paint with 9 superior properties.
Polisan’s unique “Home Cosmetics” concept was registered in 2008.
