BENEFITS OF THE PAINT

Falu Rödfärg Original is a distemper, which is one of Sweden’s oldest and most widely used types of paint. The paint provides a permeable layer that allows the wood to breathe - it lets in moisture but is also quick to let it evaporate. This minimises the risk of rot. The naturally protective properties explain why Falu Rödfärg has become Sweden’s most loved exterior paint.

A COLOUR THAT LASTS

The natural pigment from the Falun mines gives the paint its unique look. Most distempers are affected by sunlight, and red paints are particularly sensitive in this respect. But Falu Rödfärg retains its beautiful shade year after year so that you don’t have to paint your house as often. You save time and money and can instead enjoy your magnificent home.

BEST IN TEST

The pigment contains around 20 natural minerals that preserve the natural beauty of the wood. Despite a tough and varied climate, Falu Rödfärg protects and preserves our houses. In 2015, we tested Falu Rödfärg against 15 different distempers on the market so as to compare the quality. Our paint maintains its smooth surface without any cracking throughout the testing period, while several of the copies crackle after the test’s approximated two-year mark.

VALUE FOR MONEY

Falu Rödfärg Original is living proof that quality wins out in the long run. Extensive testing shows that Falu Rödfärg lasts several years longer than other distempers. This applies to both to the durability of the colour and the quality of the surface itself. Cheap copies on the market reveal clear inconsistencies in shade and are subject to crackling after only two to four years. If you want to keep your timber house fresh and beautiful, buying cheap may end up costing you dear.

A TRUE LUSTRE

Falu Rödfärg Original contains a unique pigment from the Falun mines’ mineralisation. Ore, poor in copper, has weathered over the centuries to form “red fines” which, in addition to copper, also contain a rare combination of more than twenty natural minerals such as iron ochre, silicic acid and zinc. The result is a paint with a stunning matte finish with coarse silicic acid crystals that refract and reflect light. In the warm evening twilight, the red colour becomes intense, almost luminous.

EASY TO WORK WITH

The Original is a paint that is easy to apply, easy to maintain and lasts throughout the years. The paint is to serve as a sacrificial layer. It is time to repaint the house when the pigment is sitting loosely on the surface, when the paint is “chalking”. Then you simply need to brush away the loose paint from the facade using a Falu Rödfärg steel brush, and apply a new coat.

TRADITION

Falu Rödfärg is not just a house paint, it is Swedish cultural history in a tin. Its history can be traced back all the way to the 16th century. Since 1764, the paint has been produced by us, essentially using the same method and the same recipe as we use today. Few other phenomena have put their unique stamp on Sweden and the Swedish landscape in the way that Falu Rödfärg has managed to do.
