The relationship between VOCs and the performance of paints and coatings used to be very strong. The three main sources of VOCs in paints were the resin system - the base of the paint, pigment, and the solvent that mixes everything together. Shifting from oil-based to water-based paints has lessened the number of chemicals in paints, but it was a challenge for manufacturers to lower the chemical levels in pigment to acceptable amounts. Now there is a wide range of Low and No VOC paints and coatings available with high performance levels. Rating systems have been put in place to regulate performance and environmental responsibility to ensure products are meeting the standards to have No or Low VOC claims on the label. For full article follow this link http://www.facilitiesnet.com/paintscoatings/article/Paints-and-Coatings-The-Impact-of-VOCs-on-Performance--11131# Its not just the paint and coating manufacturers seeking environmentally responsible certifications. Now EcoSolve Americas a developer of Eco-preferable paint removal products has received a green certification from EcoLogo for their paint and varnish, graffiti, and textured coating removers. EcoSolve is one of the few paint removal companies with this type of certification we have gone the distance to get third party certification because we want our customers to know how safe and environmentally responsible our products truly are.

In a ground-breaking initiative to uncover the truth about toxic chemicals in common household products, the Environmental Working Group has unearthed compelling evidence that hundreds of cleaners, even some of those hyped as “green” or “natural,” can inflict serious harm on unwary users. Many present severe risks to children who may ingest or spill them or breathe their fumes. Some of their ingredients are known to cause cancer, blindness, asthma and other serious conditions. Others are greenwashed, meaning that they are not, as their ad hype claims, environmentally benign. For a list of some of the most toxic cleaners on the shelves today and what to look for and avoid on the label, follow this link http://static.ewg.org/reports/2012/cleaners_hallofshame/cleaners_hallofshame.pdf One company trying to make a difference in the products they carry is EcoSolve Americas.

http://www.finearttips.com/2012/06/how-to-become-an-eco-friendly-artist/ Some of the most toxic and common products found in many art studios is solvent based brush cleaners and paint strippers. And it seems to be one of the harder items to replace because keeping your tools clean is a big part of keeping supply costs down. Thankfully EcoSolve Americas has the solution with effective solvent free strippers and cleaners. My personal favorite is the revolutionary Brush Renew a water based reusable brush cleaner and softener. My brushes take a real beating when I'm working so Brush Renew is ideal for me. It has no fumes and neutralizes the paint from my brushes so I'm not left with hazardous material that needs special disposal. Also Brush Renew softens abused brush bristles and is safe on all types so I can toss multiple brushes with different paints all in one jar and know they will come out clean and soft ready for the next project.
