Dothée S.A. is a Belgian family business manufacturer of paints and coatings located in Assesse, 40 minutes south of Brussels.
RD COATINGS is the range of technical products composed exclusively of high performance water-based coatings used primarily for ANTI-CORROSION, CONCRETE PROTECTION and WATERPROOFING.
Our DNA is to offer high added value products and sustained support to our customers.
Our story begins in 1946 on the banks of the Meuse in Jambes when the Dothée family decides to start the production of industrial paints necessary for the reconstruction of the infrastructure destroyed during the Second World War.
For more than fifty years, the Dothée factory has been a privileged supplier to major contractors such as railways, the Ministry of Public Works, infrastructure, etc.
Dothée specializes mainly in anticorrosion paints, road markings and floor coverings for sports fields.
In 2000, a new page turned with the takeover of the company by Dr Philippe Rondou, a specialist in industrial paints and particularly those in aqueous phase.
At the instigation of Dr Rondou, a new factory was built in Assesse in 2004. It is equipped with modern production tools which allow it to increase its R&D capacities and start a real expansion of the company internationally. .
Building on its specialization in water-based industrial coatings, the RD Coatings product range was created immediately to offer technical solutions, exclusively water-based, for the conservation of structures, construction and the maintenance of industrial, commercial and residential buildings and infrastructure, and the painting of various equipment.
RD Coatings offers innovative solutions for ANTI-CORROSION, CONCRETE PROTECTION and WATERPROOFING.
