Three questions to a person from your area

Lilo Sallinger

Ms. Sallinger, you are very concerned about sustainability and ecology, which is also reflected in the IRSA product range. This clearly reflects the spirit of the times. Do you believe that consumer attitudes have changed in recent years?
In the 1980s, a broad-based opinion campaign ensured that systems containing high levels of solvents were pushed back, and this was proven right like the keyword: "xyladecor and home toxins". The triumphal march of water-based paints, oils and waxes could begin. Today, these surface protection systems have a market share of almost 90% in the wood flooring sector. Today's zeitgeist expects products that are environmentally friendly but also function technically. Products of the future must be easy to use, be able to protect for a long time, be odourless and guarantee resource efficiency due to their fundamental ability to be repaired. The price-performance ratio in terms of value retention will therefore be more critically scrutinized in the future than before.
As a consumer I would find it difficult to find the right product for my needs due to the variety of paints and varnishes. How do you explain the advantages of IRSA products to your customers?
We want to demonstrate the special properties of a water-based varnish, sealing oil or oil with the help of concise tables, product information, application films and an app. Categorized technical and optical characteristics of IRSA products - such as durability, firing, gloss level and colour - should draw attention to what the difference is and how the product price is influenced in this way. Our goal here is transparency through neutral information that shows in concrete terms what benefits the consumer actually derives from one product or another. We communicate clearly what can be obtained and expected for the planned budget.

Do you see further potential in the context of digitization that you would like to tackle soon or in the near future?
We will continue to expand our YouTube channel, develop further apps and are looking for cooperation partners in the field of "interior design". Because the optical coordination between floor, ceiling, wall, furniture and textiles will be increasingly digitally designed in the future. It is very likely that we will meet completely different cooperation partners than we have been able to imagine so far. Here, too, the customer benefit will always be in the foreground!
Lilo Sallinger has been managing partner of the family business IRSA Lackfabrik Irmgard Sallinger GmbH in Deisenhausen for over 30 years. IRSA is a manufacturer of sealants, water-based paints, oils, paint systems, care and cleaning agents for the protection of wood in interior finishing (especially for parquet and wood floors) and for exterior use - in addition to surface protection agents for cork, stone floors, sports aircraft, silo and stable floors and other areas. Her father was considered a "polyurethane pope", her mother Irmgard provided innovative water-based coating systems, which the daughter developed further or newly together with oils and waxes (to the fear of the paint industry at that time!). Today IRSA produces and markets only consumer and environmentally friendly professional products with a share of almost 90%. A current research project, together with a Viennese university, will further demonstrate IRSA's innovative capability.

The bright colour should remain: with IRSA Pflegeöl “neutral” (IRSA Care Oil “neutral”)

IRSA Pflegeöl neutral

Do you know the ugly effect when the brightly pigmented oiled floor gets immediately darker after polishing with a colourless care oil?

This is avoided with the new IRSA Pflegeöl “neutral”.

The IRSA Pflegeöl “neutral” can both be used on surfaces treated with oils for care and protection and maintenance at the same time. The appearance of IRSA Pflegeöl “neutral” has a neutral effect on brightly pre-oiled surfaces and hardly changes as the pigments of IRSA Pflegeöl “neutral” are optimally agreed with the brightly coloured surfaces.
