Interior paints and finishes
Beautiful on the inside and beautiful on the outside. Our range of interior paints and wood finishes are sought out for their beautiful creative aesthetics as well as their non-toxic and eco-friendly credentials. We think this is fitting because we see beauty as the hallmark of a healthy body and a healthy home.
The capacity of paints and finishes to allow water vapour to be released from the substrate is known as the breathability of the paint or wood finish. Breathable paints and finishes contribute to the health of a home by avoiding a build up of moisture, which can cause deterioration of the walls and potential mould issues. Coatings that do not breath are a bit like sweating inside a plastic raincoat. read more
Exterior paints and finishes
The fumes emitted from exterior paints and finishes contribute to poor environmental air quality in our cities and towns. Many people dont understand the implications of this, thinking because it's outside it's not important to use low VOC products. However the fumes (or VOC's) emitted from exterior paints and finishes affect the health of the person applying them and also contribute to environmental SMOG. Air pollution from SMOG is a major environmental problem. The VOC levels in paints and wood finishes are now subject to tighter and tighter regulation in Europe, America and Australia because of this. Buildings must use low VOC paints and wood finishes inside and out to qualify for Greenstar Ratings. more
