CIN is a Portuguese brand and the Iberian leader in the coatings market. Once again, the CIN’s products were recognized in 2019 as the best choice for consumers and professionals. Unsurprisingly, Cináqua, the best-selling interior paint in Portugal, was nominated for the 5th
consecutive year as the Professionals’ Choice in the Interior Paints category. However, the real revelation of the year is the innovative AC-THANE, also voted Professionals’ Choice - in the Enamel category. The pioneering role of this product is reflected on this award, received only a year after it was launched in 2018. AC-THANE is the first enamel with an innovative
technology based on a new polyurethane-enriched formulation that provides an ultra-soft touch and an excellent finish.
In the category of exterior paints, CIN’s Nováqua HD has the unanimous choice of professionals for 4 consecutive years and Consumer Choice for 3 years, in recognition of its durability in painting façades. Also, VinylClean is once again considered Consumer Choice, a recognition it has held since 2017, attesting to the market's preference for the super washability of this paint for interiors
"The fact that CIN's products have been named
‘Professionals Choice' and 'Consumer Choice' for several years confirms the
recognition of the quality associated with the brand and the continued commitment
CIN puts into developing technically advanced products that are the best in the
industry. The development of
more complete products, better suited to the needs of those who apply them and
always ahead of their time, is one of the driving forces of CIN's activity in
all the markets where it operates", comments Marcos Castro, Marketing Director of CIN
. He illustrates this with the example of "the choice of AC-THANE,
a revolutionary enamel due to the pioneering introduction of polyurethane,
which is the result of CIN's R & D work. It was launched in 2018 and has already conquered the market." CIN starts the year seeing the quality and innovation of its products recognized by both the consumers and professionals who every day choose and use CIN brand products and paints.

Carried out by ConsumerChoice, this study includes consumers of both sexes, who, using a home use methodology, carried out the assessment of the attributes considered most important when choosing a paint.
The “Professionals Choice” is a system assessing the level of satisfaction and acceptability of products and services in terms of their individual attributes, with the guarantee that these are always assessed by professionals with current consumer experience and according to specific satisfaction criteria. Also coordinated by ConsumerChoice, the population of this study comprises professionals who use the
