VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) are solids and liquids found in ordinary paints that convert easily to gas or vapour at room temperature which, when exposed to the environment and humans, can have harmful effects.

Recent research carried out globally has developed alternatives to VOCs that offer the same paint standard without the potentially unsafe chemical components, whilst improving air quality and reducing emissions that may pollute. These paints are referred to as zero VOCs.

Crown Paints has been manufacturing the low VOC paint ranges for some time, and after years of research is the first company in the region to manufacture and offer zero VOC paints, in line with its commitment to offer innovative products of the highest international standards.
Opting for zero VOC paints is an important step toward turning your interior or exterior paint job into a more environmentally friendly and healthier space.
