Hoping to bring more innovation and quality to the local market, Ascent Engineering Supply has opened its paint store – Color Plus – which provides decorative, industrial and wall paints, as well as pain tools.

Located in Anse Etoile, a few good metres near the police station, Color Plus is the sole distributor of Shalimar Paints in Seychelles – a paint and coating manufacturing company in India that is over 100 years old.

Customers can choose from around 1,200 colours and may even customise their paint colours using a computer generated machine and a gyro shaker.

Colour Plus officially opened its doors to the public on January 27 but was only operational for about two months before it had to close down shop due to the restrictions that came in effect as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Ascent’s sale executive, Norline Morel, explains that all the paint tubs come into the country as white paint and dyes are added in-store to provide the customer with the desired colour.

Staying true to its motto ‘Color your world’, Color Plus has a sales assistant on hand who has received training on how to operate the machine and who can make use of the machine in under three minutes.

“Aside from wall paints, we also have paint for boats, wood and galvanised pipes,” Ms Morel detailed.

In stock, Color Plus has ‘Weather Pro Plus’ paint, a water-based super-premium 100% acrylic exterior emulsion with silicon additives perfect for safeguarding walls from extreme weather conditions like rain, humidity and heat. It reflects sun rays to help reduce heat build-up, blocks out damaging UV rays and prevent algal and fungal formation on walls.

Another option, would be the No.1 Silk paint which offers a smoother, luxurious matte finish.

Color Plus also carries the water based exterior acrylic emulsion Super Shaktiman paint that offers excellent durability and protection against any climatic conditions due to its anti-fading and anti-flacking properties.

Color Plus is open on weekdays during normal business hours and on Saturdays from 8am to noon, and can be contacted on 4241452.
