Color brings such joy to your surroundings, and if you dream of bringing fresh color into your home with a fresh coat of paint, we are here to help your paint dreams come true.
Friedman’s Home Improvement has plenty of paints and colors to choose from, of course, and we thought we’d help you get started by offering tips on the benefits of “NO” or “Zero” VOC paint.
Many people love the scent of fresh paint, but few stop to think about where that scent comes from. As it turns out, that new paint smell is largely caused by what’s called, “volatile organic compounds,” or VOCs. VOCs are chemicals that evaporate quickly when left at room temperature. You’ll find VOCs in alkyd oil and latex paints. They help make the paint easier to spread and more durable.
However, these VOCs create asthma and allergy issues for several people, plus VOCs aren’t always friendly to the environment. Fortunately, for people who desire to paint with “low”, “no”, or “zero” VOCs, Friedman’s has the solution:
● Bulls Eye Zero Primer has Zero VOCs, is gentle on the environment, is good for interior and exterior use, low odor, & fast to dry.
● Green Envy Paint Thinner has ultra low VOC, reduces toxins, ideal for thinning paint and paint clean up.
● Glidden Spred Interior Paint is Low VOC, healthier for families, better for the environment, and you won’t be sacrificing a thing.
● Freshaire Glidden Paint has Zero VOCs, with zero VOC tints coming in pre-measured packets of dry tint that color the paint without adding any VOCs to the paint, an industry first!
