We use Low VOC Paints

Low-VOC-Paint-ImageThe use of sustainable and environmentally friendly products is very important in today’s industry. Here at Cladding Coatings we also take this seriously and do all we can to be environmentally friendly.

One of the ways we do this is to use low VOC paints. Traditional paints contain chemicals such as Formaldehyde, heavy metals and offensive volatile organic compounds, known as VOC’s. These harmful products are given out whilst painting but also up to five years after.

Not only is this harmful to the painters and the people close by the painted areas, but during production of these paints, harmful bi-products are emitted and they are manufactured from non-sustainable resources. It is estimated that for every 1 litre produced = 30 litres of toxic waste.

Due to the effects of the paints and this process the EU placed limits on these VOC levels, The Paints Directive 2004/42/EC. Click to read this.

The aim of this was to prevent the environmental effects of emissions of VOC’s. The reduction of VOCs from paints improves the European air quality by reducing the amount of tropospheric ozone. Ozone has a negative impact on human health. Furthermore, there can be a yearly loss of roughly up to 10% e.g. for certain crops due to tropospheric ozone (NEGTAP 2001).
