|Sikkens leads the competition when it comes
to beautifying and protecting exterior wood surfaces with its Cetol Transparent
Timber Finish System. The Sikkens name has stood for quality in coatings
for more than two centuries. Today it is one of the leading brands of Akzo
Nobel Decorative Coatings. Akzo Nobel, based in Europe, with divisions in

Sikkens has been in Australasia for over 20 years and has proven itself
in the harsh Australian and New Zealand climates. Sikkens was initially
developed by Wiert Willemszoon Sikkens, a painter and glassmaker in 1792,
when he began the manufacture of paints and varnishes for his family store
in the Dutch trading centre of Goningen. His inquiring scientific mind,
combined with solid business sense characterises his legacy today.
