  • Low & Zero VOC Paint

    Improve air quality and help reduce emissions that pollute by using zero Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) paints.

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) are emitted by different gases and solids such as paints and lacquers, paint strippers, cleaning supplies, pesticides, building materials and furnishings, and craft materials including adhesives and permanent markers.

According to the EPA, levels of select organic pollutants were found to be 2 to 5 times higher inside a home than outside it. That’s why it’s important to choose low and zero VOC products. It’s especially important when selecting paint as it remains in the home for several years. Our interior paints are only low and zero VOC, so not only do they provide superior coverage, hide, and durability, they help maintain healthy indoor air quality.

Apply a coat of cleaner air

Even years after application, paints and finishes can release low level toxic emissions into the air. The source for these toxins is a variety of volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. Our interior paints are only low and zero VOC, and promote healthy indoor air quality.
