Environmental Paint Specialist – helping to make a "greener" Australia
Global warming and climate change gives a new meaning to our work in protecting our planet. As environmental and sustainable paint specialists, our commitment is to minimize the release of contaminated solvents into the environment in compliance with Federal, State and local Council requirements.
We have researched painting products that are low toxic and low in VOCs* that can pose health risks to humans eg eye and breathing irritation, particularly with some interior paints.
* [Volatile Organic Compounds]
In recent years we have helped to pioneer heat reflective products for the Australian market that significantly impact on reducing energy bills and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, we specialise in “Energy Star Heat Reflective” exterior paints and coatings that can help to reduce internal temperatures of buildings and create a major cost saving on air conditioning and resultant power usage. These breakthrough external coatings come in light through to dark colours and suit projects across the board – for the domestic, commercial and industrial markets.
