Ironlak is Australia's First Aerosol Art Paint. More than just a brand of spraypaint, Ironlak was founded by a graffiti writer who wanted to offer Australian writers a quality brand of paint at an affordable price. It's been a bumpy ride but over the past 10 years Ironlak has gone from a pipedream, to a globally respected brand with paint now shipping all over the world.

As Ironlak is an independent brand, the major aim is to stay true to its roots and support the culture as much as possible. A part of this is done through The Ironlak Family, which an unstoppable force of 23 writers from Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the USA. Masters at the craft, they represent Ironlak and aspire to keep pushing what's possible with spraypaint to whole new levels.

Three Sixty Project was birthed from the concept of ‘one for one’. The idea itself is quite simple – for every skateboard we sell we send one overseas (or within Australia) in support of Skate Programs developed to work with youth in that specific area.

Skateboarding is being used all over the world as a tool to engage with and empower youth – to interact with them on a level they know and love. A passion for riding and the lifestyle and culture of skateboarding today allows for a platform where youth and young adults can get off the streets, make friends, gain access to education and most importantly hang out with people that have a genuine interest for their well-being.
