Everyone is talking about Low-VOC products and why they are important. But most people do not know what this means. “VOC” stands for “Volatile Organic Compound”. These are gases emitted by various solids or liquids, many of which have short and long-term adverse health effects. Solvents in traditional paints and sealants often contain high quantities of VOC’s. Paints that are low in VOC’s, or ZERO VOC’s, such as cilajet products, improve indoor air quality and reduce urban smog. The beneficial characteristics include: low odor, clean air formula, safer technology, as well as excellent durability and a washable finish.
