LOW VOC waterbased polymer dispersions

A low VOC (volatile organic compounds) wall paint is a type of paint that has been formulated to emit lower levels of VOCs into the air. VOCs are chemicals that are released into the air as the paint dries and can have negative impacts on both indoor air quality and the environment.

Low VOC paints typically contain less than 50 grams per liter of VOCs and are considered to be more environmentally friendly than traditional paints, which can contain hundreds of grams per liter of VOCs.

Low VOC paints are available in a variety of formulations, including:

  • Water-based paints: These types of paints use water as a solvent, which reduces the amount of VOCs released into the air.
  • Zero-VOC paints: These types of paints contain no VOCs or very low levels of VOCs. They are considered to be the most environmentally friendly type of paint.
  • Natural/organic paints: These types of paints are made from natural or organic materials, such as plant-based oils and pigments, which reduces the amount of VOCs.

Low VOC paints can be used for interior and exterior painting, and it is a good choice for people with allergies, asthma, or other health concerns, as well as for those who want to reduce their impact on the environment. It is important to note that even low VOC paints may have some VOCs, and it is recommended to check the labels of the products to verify the amount of VOCs they contain.
