Dunn-Edwards has launched zero VOC colorants for tinting, which virtually eliminates volatile organic compounds from paint.

“While high quality, zero VOC paints have become widely available in recent years, there was still the issue of conventional colorants adding VOCs back into the paint,” explained Robert Wendoll, director of environmental affairs. “Now we can offer low odor, more environmentally friendly paints in any color, while maintaining lower overall VOCs in all of our tinted water-based products.”

Zero VOC colorants are currently available in all of Dunn-Edwards 16 Northern California stores, and rolling out to the remainder of its 92 stores over the next few months. This new technology allows Dunn-Edwards not only to make greener paint, but to comply with current and future regulatory limits that may be set on colorants used for tinting paint. “This is the latest step in our commitment to green technology and it aligns with our greener by design philosophy of being as eco-efficient as possible,” said Wendoll.

Wendoll said Dunn-Edwards' color lab and colorant supplier worked for several years to develop these proprietary zero VOC colorants.

Dunn-Edwards, which manufactures its paints in the world’s first LEED Gold Certified facility, can use the zero VOC colorants in all its water-based paint lines. These new colorants are free of any EPA chemicals of concern the company said.
