About VOC and ECO

About VOCs

VOCs is an acronym you will see all the time when you start looking into painting your house or selecting a painting contractor. Manufacturers market their paints as “Low VOC,” “VOC Free, Eco Paint, Green Earth Paint, zero VOC.” etc. and point to that as an indication of how eco-friendly they are. So what does VOC mean? More importantly, why should you care?

VOC stands for Volatile Organic Compounds & / or Volatile Odor Content depending on context of conversation.  Basically, these are compounds that vaporize – they give off gasses. They are used in paints to hold together different components such as coloring and resins, and then evaporate as the paint dries.

The VOCs used in interior painting and exterior painting can exist in high concentrations in indoor areas – often two to five times greater than in outdoor air, and sometimes up to 1000 times greater. What can cause problems is when the “total” VOC levels are high due to new construction or remodeling, and multiple compounds such as paint, primer, thinner, stain, etc. are all being used.

One of the more important developments in conventional paints has been the trend toward water-based paints that have far fewer VOCs. These new water-based products have fewer VOCs and therefore fewer potentially harmful emissions. In addition, the chemicals used in place of VOCs are more environmentally friendly to produce, and often last longer with brighter colors.

Eco Paint Specialists has been a pioneer in the use of low- and zero-VOC paints, having done so for a number of years. Eco Paint Specialist’s coined the phrase Eco Paint back in 1993, long before Green Earth Friendly Paints were ever available to the general public as of 1999-2000. It is Eco Paint’s a main focus of our business to offer our customers eco-friendly products for their house painting needs, and we are glad to help, doing our part to protect the environment.

Product Spotlight: Benjamin Moore and True Green Eco Paint

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

At Eco Paint Specialists, IE. Eco Paint, we only use products from the finest paint manufacturers. From time to time,we’ll profile some of these companies and their products here on the blog so you can learn more about them.

Benjamin Moore, like Sherwin-Williams,  is a top-tier paint company. They offer many high quality products for painting your house, staining your deck, and any other painting need you might have. Their complete product line is top-notch and highly recommended. Benjamin Moore has been around since 1883.

The company was founded in Brooklyn, New York, by Benjamin and Robert Moore.  It has grown into one of the largest paint manufacturers and developed a great reputation for quality. Benjamin Moore has also gotten on the “green” bandwagon with other paint manufacturers, and they have a line of green paints that they call Natura.

What makes these paints unique is that the manufacturer claims they have zero VOC – no matter what color. Many manufacturers boast that their paints are zero VOC, but it’s usually just the colorless bases – the colorants almost always contain VOCs. In this case, Benjamin Moore seems to have broken away from the pack and offered something truly innovative, with zero V.O.C colorants, making True Green Earth Friendly Paint.  Other product lines include their Aura paints, and their “ben” line offered as a “value” paint –their entry-level line for consumers. Eco Paint is happy to offer Benjamin Moore Paints to its valued customers as a quality choice for your house painting needs.
