What does the price of paint consist of?
In fact, paint is fairly inexpensive compared to other materials and methods. Just like many other products, the price of paint includes product development, raw material, manufacturing, labour, storage, and distribution costs.

The Tikkurila product range is wide-ranging and includes products made of both cheaper and more expensive components. In the long term, the most economic solution is to select the right product for each job and use it according to the manufacturer’s instructions and recommendations. Product sales price should not be the only selection criterion.
