What are VOCs?
VOC stands for Volatile Organic Compounds and are toxic chemicals emitted by drying paints. These compounds are harmful to you because they have been linked to respiratory illness. VOCs are harmful to the environment because they have been linked to ozone and smog formation. As a consumer, you would recognize the difference between paint with VOC and those without VOC due to the smell. Paints with high levels of VOC will have a strong “fresh paint” smell and can even cause headaches or memory impairment when inhaled.

Zero VOC paint still has the same coverage, longevity and quality of regular paint. The only difference you will notice is the lack of smell during and after the work is complete!
