At Ecolour, we use breakthrough technology to manufacture premium quality water based paint that is 100% free of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
VOC free means the paint is safe to use around the chemically sensitive, asthma sufferers, pregnant women, children, pets and you. It is completely non-toxic.
Traditional household paints contain toxic chemicals that are released into the air for years after application, called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). VOCs are harmful chemicals that have been shown to contribute to many health conditions including breathing difficulties, dizziness, headaches, fatigue, blurred vision and even cancer.
If you’ve ever walked into a recently painted room and felt a little dizzy or your eyes started stinging, that a small indication of how your body being impacted by the VOCs.
The World Health Organisation classifies painting as a high risk occupation as repeated exposure to the VOCs in regular paints leads to much higher rates of lung and bladder cancer for painters. Other paints which are classified as low VOC can still contain up to 7.5% VOCs (even some companies that claim to be “zero-VOC” aren’t in fact zero, be sure to read the fine print on the product data sheets!). VOCs outgas for years after application continuing to impact on the indoor air quality of your work and living environments.
