Science and technology make a prosperous nation, while innovation makes strong companies. As a leading high-end coating brand in China, 3TREES established the development philosophy of "cultivating a hundred-year evergreen tree through green innovation" right upon its inception, and has formed the R&D philosophy of “ultimate performance and application for ultimate health” ever since. 3TREES is committed to creating a healthy and beautiful life for all through the R&D and application of environment-friendly, energy-conserving and low-carbon products.

3TREES now has more than 1,000 research and technical personnel and over 30 technology innovation teams. It has also appointed Professor Jean-Marie Lehn, a Nobel laureate in chemistry and Father of Supramolecular Chemistry as its Chief Technology Adviser, and hires Ph.D. and Master’s graduates from famous Chinese and international universities each year to strengthen basic innovation and explore solutions to common problems in the coatings industry. 3TREES has also undertaken a number of important frontier research projects funded by China’s 863 Program and provincial and municipal science and technology programs, and established research cooperation with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Tsinghua University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Fuzhou University and other leading research institutes, obtaining multiple industry-leading research results. 3TREES has built sound research and technical facilities infrastructure, including a 6,000㎡ R&D Center at its headquarters, National Accredited Enterprise Technology Center, Post-doctoral Research Work Station, Academician and Expert Work Station, National Accredited Laboratory, as well as Hazardous Substances Testing Lab, Constant Temperature and Humidity Lab and Microbiological Lab. It has set up 9 regional research centers across China, introduced advanced IT and formula management systems and installed over 100 high-end research equipment. Meanwhile, carrying forward the internationalization idea of "going out and bringing in" and focusing on most urgently needed high and new materials in the industry, 3TREES (Shanghai) Academy of Sciences will further raise the technological level of the industry and enhanced its global influence and standing. 3TREES has participated in the formulation of 50 national and industrial standards and now owns more than 300 patents. It has also developed more than 30 first-class formulas, and published nearly 50 papers in core technical journals.

3TREES is committed to building healthy homes by providing an integrated 6-in-1 one-stop system of green construction materials and services, encompassing interior and exterior wall coatings, waterproofing products, insulation materials, auxiliary materials, floor coatings and construction. It integrates “user centrism” into its R&D process to develop products with the concept of ultimate health. So far, 3TREES has developed characteristic health + serial products and low-carbon, energy-saving, safe and environmental-friendly new building coatings, whose technical indicators are way higher than those set in the national green product standard and European and US environmental standards. Among its 8,000-plus products are Fresh Breath Air Purification Paint which is resistant to formaldehyde, bacteria, viruses and fungi and can effectively decompose odor molecules to make air fresher; Anti-Bacterial and Anti-Virus All-round Wall Paint which adopts silver ion anti-bacterial and virus technology to block the replication and transmission of viruses; BB Paint, an "FDA food-contact grade" wall paint which has passed FDA food contact safety test and is highly bacterial-resistant; Photocatalytic Self-Cleaning Exterior Wall Top Coat which can effectively purify the air and degrade haze through visible light catalysis; Ever-Green Waterproof Coiled Material Series which are the first to adopt a "zero rubber powder" formula and can offer 3 times longer durability; and SCI-Tech Decorative Board with innovative aesthetic veneer technology, which is odorless and formaldehyde-free and makes “health” sustainable. The whole product system can meet user demand for one-stop green building materials.
