Assessing the demands of the job
In addition to considering the sustainability of the paint, the right solution for a particular job will vary, dependent on which factors are of most importance. These may be:
- Lowest environmental impact over the total life cycle
- Lowest embodied carbon on application
- Specific positive environmental or health and well-being attributes
Due to improvements in our formulating technologies and the environmental impact of solvent-based paints, we strongly recommend that water-based paints are used for trim areas such as doors, skirting, window frames etc. wherever possible.
