VOC free paints

You may wish to consider a healthier and more environmentally friendly paint choice for your next home improvement project. VOC free paints are specially formulated to reduce or eliminate the use of harmful chemicals, providing a high-quality finish without the unpleasant smells associated with traditional paints. Our team of expert painters have more than 50 years’ experience in the industry and possess an expert understanding of how to achieve the best results. Like designer paints, VOC free paints require precision, attention to detail, and multiple coats to deliver the right effect. We have the skill and knowledge to work with specialist VOC free paints and to create the stunning finish you desire.

What are VOCs?

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are chemicals that are found in many types of paints.These compounds vaporize at room temperature as part of a process that is known as ‘offgassing’. This leaves the dry paint behind on the surface and is responsible for the new paint smell you may notice within your property after decorating.

Why should you choose VOC free paints?

VOC free paints are formulated using natural ingredients such as chalk, clay, and lime rather than the synthetic chemicals found in traditional paints. As a result, they are non-toxic and low odour, making them far more pleasant to live and work with. VOC free paints are high-quality and eco-friendly, producing eye-catching results with minimal environmental impact. If you are considering whether to use VOC free paints within your next home improvement project you should know that:

 VOC free paints are healthier

The VOCs released into the atmosphere by traditional paints aren’t just unpleasant, they can be harmful as well. These chemicals have been linked to headaches, breathing difficulties, dizziness, and nausea, and they can cause issues for particular audiences such as asthma sufferers, elderly people, pregnant women, and children. As traditional paints will continue to ‘offgas’ until all VOCs have been vaporised, this process can last for years, and air pollution will continue to build up within your home.

VOC free paints are better for the environment

The use of VOCs in paints can also cause issues for the environment. The ‘offgassing’ process contributes to air pollution, whilst the synthetic chemicals used to create traditional paints are often toxic. As a result, manufacturers are increasingly developing low VOC or VOC free paints that replace these harmful ingredients with natural pigments and ingredients. As well as reducing their environmental impact, these paints are also more breathable, preventing moisture from being trapped below the painted surface.

What are your VOC free paint options?

These paints are known by lots of different names – VOC free paints, low VOC paints, zero VOC paints, and natural paints. What unites them all is a much lower VOC content than traditional paints and a manufacturing process that is much more environmentally aware. There are several popular VOC free paint brands such as Earthborn, Graphenstone, Edward Bulmer, Little Knights, and Lakeland, but, increasingly, major brands such as Dulux are also offering VOC free options. Our team has worked with a wide range of different VOC free paints and will use their understanding to help you determine the right paint for your requirements.
