USPsThat's why RAW Paints' products are good for environment and health!
ADHESION ON DAMP SURFACES
RAW Paints’ products have the property to adhese well on damp surfaces. RAW Paints is creates a second skin, eliminating the possibility of peeling. The competition can guarantee application on a surface up to 6% of humidity in the stone for use on exterior facades, RAW Paints with RWP100 gives a guarantee of up to 10% and with RWP028 up to 15%. Many people are unaware of the (high) humidity level in the stone of their home. The painter can perform this measurement, so that it becomes clear which paints can be used best.
VOC-free means that RAW paints’ paint powder is free of volatile organic compounds (VOC) (VOS).
VOC include a multitude of rapidly evaporating organic solvents, which can harm the environment and cause serious health problems. You can think of OPS (painter’s disease) and SBS (Sick building syndrome).
VOC-Free is certainly not the same as solvent free. Volatile organic compounds are part of all solvents that can be in a product. But VOC are the most harmful rapidly evaporating solvents for the environment and the health of the people who work with the product. There are also solvents that evaporate slower, called semi-VOC.
In some products, solvents that fall under the VOC definitions are wholly or partially replaced by solvents that do not fall under it. That’s fine for the health of the one who does the paints job. However, you have to realise that slower evaporating solvents will also evaporate at a given time. With slower evaporative solvents, possible risks are therefore moved from the painter to the house owner.
VOC-Poor or VOC-free paints are a major step forward for the painter, inhabitant and the environment. But products like RAW Paints where no solvents are added at all, is even better for a cleaner and healthier world!
RAW Paints contributes in a variety of ways to a cleaner and more sustainable environment:
- Due to its excellent adhesion, painting with RAW Paints products for a longer period without maintenance
- The products are solvent-free, which means that no emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) take place indoors (read: a healthy interior)
- No unnecessary water is transported in paint; RAW Paints products are supplied in powder form. You only add water at the time of painting
