Low VOC Acrylic Enamels
The biggest change to modern paints is the development of water-based enamels.
Oil-based enamels are extremely high in VOC's - up to 350gms/L - which is why they are so smelly and are a major source of environmental air pollution. Using modern water-based enamels makes a huge difference to the health of the painter, the occupants of a house, and to our environment.
Painted Earth offer two water-based acrylic enamels - ROCKOTE Ecostyle Satin and Gloss They contain less than 3g/L VOC which is the lowest of any water-based acrylic enamel on the Australian market. They perform equally as well as oil based enamel and are very economical to use.
