Nov 2016 – Dulux Paints
Dulux was fined A$400,000 by ASIC for “making false or misleading
representations about the temperature reducing characteristics of two paint products.” Dulux stated that their paint could: “reduce the interior temperature of the living zones of a house by up to 10 degrees.”
Now, I know a little about this having spent 12 years working in and owning an Air-Conditioning business. If this were true…all A/C companies would be instantly out of business! A 10 degree drop in temperature is an optimum result for most parts of Australia.
Maybe the marketing department of Dulux needs to work closer with the Research & Development department…and where was the director in all these ‘developments’?
