Low VOC Solutions

Build Green & Improve Indoor Air Quality

If your goal is to “build green”, be it through meeting VOC regulations, qualifying for BREEAM or LEED® credits, or consciously attempting to minimize the overall environmental footprint of your building, PPG can help.

We offer products that meet the most stringent environmental standards which require either zero or low VOC* coatings while delivering the performance you’ve come to expect.

Low VOC and Water Based paints

Low VOC paints and coatings have reduced amounts of volatile organic compounds, meaning they don’t release as much VOC as traditional paints.

We offer a comprehensive range of low VOC, water based paints covering all categories – wall & ceiling emulsion paints, trim paints, floor coatings through to intumescent coatings.

Considering VOC Emissions

Low emission paints are better for health and the environment.

BREEAM, LEED and WELL set limits for the concentration of VOC emissions and formaldehyde – this goes beyond VOC content contained within the can, focusing on the emissions released from the paint once dry.

As of 2018, the BREEAM New Construction manual considers an Indoor Air Quality Plan a pre-requisite that must be completed at RIBA Stage 2, encouraging architects to consider air pollution early in the design process and put a mitigation strategy in place, to reduce VOC content & emissions.

One of the most widely used classifications for building material emissions assessment is the Indoor Air Comfort Test from Eurofins. PPG are proud to have a growing number of products which meet the VOC Emissions requirements for Indoor Air Comfort GOLD & Exemplary level.
