About Us

Mirotone Beginnings

Mirotone began its life in a suburban backyard in 1935 and incorporated as a company in 1938, initially producing wood lacquers such as shellac. It has grown into an Australian-based multinational group – still privately owned – exporting to countries including the USA, Chile, Ecuador, Korea, Philippines and India.

Over the years Mirotone has expanded into a wide range of innovative coating solutions. Our consistent investment in research and development and our willingness to customise products has contributed to our customers’ business success.

Mirotone’s technical strength is underpinned by a strong group of industrial chemists – many at the central research laboratory in Sydney, while others provide local technical expertise from the various companies of the Mirotone group.

As well as manufacturing plants in Revesby and Chipping Norton in Sydney and Wellington in New Zealand, Mirotone has a joint venture operation in Thailand. With Colour Services departments in each state of Australia and New Zealand, Mirotone offers next-day delivery on colours tinted to order.

Mirotone is also the exclusive distributor in Australia and New Zealand for leading Italian coatings manufacturer Industria Chemica Adriatica Spa (ICA). It offers ICA’s range of innovative, high quality, low environmental impact products. These include interior and exterior water based coatings, glass coatings, special high range UV products, fire retardant coatings, as well as special effect coatings.
