Eco-friendly Paints and Stains
What makes paints GREEN?
Today, an emerging alternative to chemical solvents are eco–friendly paints. These use water-based solvents to reduce or eliminate the release of VOCs in indoor spaces. Plus, they’re odor-free and have a significantly lower impact on the environment.
What paint is best for the environment?
The best choice for an exterior paint is one that has zinc oxide as the fungicide. Next best choices are zero– to very low-VOC paints, acrylic or latex paints, and recycled water-based paint. Avoid oil-based paints because of their high VOC content, as well as paint from old cans that may contain mercury or lead.
What are VOCs?
VOCs or Volatile Organic Compounds are chemicals found in solvent-based and in small quantities in many water-based paints and coatings. Their main purpose in solvent-based paints is to act as the medium to transfer the paint from the can to the surface and aid the paint’s flow.
Can acrylic paint kill you?
Acrylic paint is water based, you‘ll be okay. … While I do not recommend eating your paints, they’re non toxic and they would not do you any harm when ingested in small quantities like that. You‘ll live to paint another day! 😉
