From a staff of just three, the company has grown to an industry leader, now with over 150 staff members, more than 35 products and many milestones in between: in 1985 Duram introduced Rainkote, South Africa’s first acrylic waterproofing system; also in 1985 was the introduction of Durabak polyurethane truck-bed liner; in 1990 we started exporting to the USA; in 1998 we acquired Aldrin and adopted their brands, including NS4, Anti-Rust Coating; in 1999 NuGlo was introduced as South Africa’s first water-based enamel paint; in 2010 NanoTech, the self cleaning paint, was launched; recently we launched Showfloor, a complete solution for the prepping and painting of cement floors.
