Alcro Aqua Servalac
Update Jan 2018 In 2011 Stephen from Paint & Paper Ltd in Norwich kindly sent me the following information on Alcro Aqua Servalac, after reading about the different paints I am familiar with for cabinets.
We have a number of kitchen manufacturers using Alcro Aqua Servalac from Sweden to paint their kitchen units.
Sweden has been using water based paints much longer than the companies mentioned in your article and from the reports we receive, have stolen a march on their rivals.
Alcro Aqua Servalac is available in matt, satin and gloss.

We can mix many other makers’ colours in Aqua Servalac as well.
I must admit I had never heard of this particular Scandinavian company, but Alcro are part of the Tikkurila group, a Finnish company whose water-based furniture paint is specified world wide – it comes with a pedigree.
Richard Willott who is Traditional Painter for East Anglia has been specifying Alcro paints on kitchens for years, and has introduced several colleagues to this reliable water-based paint system that comes in matt, satin and gloss sheens.
It is a big world out there, and it is good to know that UK-based painters looking to differentiate themselves from the run-of-the-mill contractors still stuck in the 1980’s have more options now.
