By January 2011, it will be illegal for merchants to sell solvent-based paints and coatings which fail to conform to the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) regulations. With a whole host of compliant products now available, Dulux Trade caught up with some members of The Painters and Decorators Association (PDA) and some Dulux Select Decorators to find out how the new paint formulation has impacted on their work.
Note: Whilst leading-edge technology has been used in the development of this product, the nature of solvent-based paints means that they will all discolour over time. The rate of discolouration is faster in areas with no natural or UV light. For long-lasting whiteness, we recommend the use of a water-based formulation such as Dulux Trade Ecosure Water-Based Gloss.
