How paint is tested

To become GREENGUARD Gold Certified, paint undergoes rigorous testing for over 360 VOCs and hazardous chemicals in a dynamic environmental chamber that simulates the air flow in a typical home environment. Measurements for chemical and particle emissions are taken at intervals and products must meet allowable emission levels within 7 to 14 days of application.

About VOCs

    • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), are carbon-containing compounds, emitted as gasses, that can pollute the air in your home and the environment. VOCs are commonly present in a wide array of household products.
    • Our paint is Zero VOC, which means no carbon-based solvents (VOCs) have been intentionally added to our products, although trace amounts of VOC may be present as residual components of other ingredients.
    • We also use only Zero VOC colorants in our paint, so they won’t add VOCs when the paint is tinted.
    • View our Technical Data Sheets or visit our FAQ page here for more information on the VOC contents of our paint.
  • Check out this informative overview from The Environmental Protection Agency on the impact of VOCs in your home.

    • According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), studies have found that levels of VOCs are 2 to 5 times higher indoors than outdoors.
