“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,” said 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.”
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, according to the company.
“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. “We’re known among design and painting professionals for our colors, especially the depth and vibrancy of color, so we needed to ensure that we would maintain the quality of the tints. We are extremely pleased with our newzero VOC colorants.”
