Impact Painting & Fine Finishes Environmentally Friendly Approach
Impact Painting & Fine Finishes strongly belives in a green & clean Australia, we adopt responsible environmental friendly painting procedures on a daily basis, taking away ALL our dirty waste water back to our workshop and treating it in our “Enviro Wash Unit” which is explained below.
Dulux Australia’s development of environmental resposible water-based paints as a replacement for many solvent-based paints has been under way since the 1960’s. Dulux Australia is now the largest manufacturer of water-based paints. The benefit to the environment is obvious. When solvent-based paint dries, a large quantity of solvent evaporates into the atmosphere, contributing to air pollution levels. On the other hand, water-based paint emits mainly harmless water vapour into the air.
Low VOC Paints
Dulux has been at the forefront in introducing low VOC paints. Low VOC paints are lower in Volatile Organic Compounds thereby creating less emissions and less odour.
Dulux has introduced low VOC paints in Trade e.g Dulux Professional Enviro2, DIY e.g Wash & Wear 101 Advanced and tinters. The company is committed to further develop its low VOC ranges.
