Non Toxic Paints - Are They Really Non Toxic?

The goal of creating a non-toxic paint can be traced to developments over the past several decades as the materials used to hold paint together have changed considerably. Up until the 1970s, lead was used in paints and proved to be highly effective in bonding specific materials together. However, chips from lead paint caused serious health issues, which then caused it to be banned over most of the world.

Since that time, different bonding materials have been used to provide paint with durability and longevity which has resulted in some toxic substances being used such as polyurethane with isocyanates. Until recently, it was believed that polyurethane with isocyanates was safe after the paint hardened, but recent studies have indicated that it still presents a danger to those who live or work inside the home or business.

Why Use Non-Toxic Paint?
There are good reasons why you should use a less-toxic paint alternative that still provides the same qualities as polyurethane-based paints, but without the inherent dangers to those who are exposed.
The air inside your residence or building averages three times the pollutants compared to being outdoors at least according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This means that paints which contain toxic substances such as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) are trapped inside and will build up over time. Exposure to building amounts of toxins creates a health risk that also rises if the problem is not solved.

Another issue is the odor created by paints which have significant amounts of VOCs and other toxic properties. While the odor does fade over time, it does not fully go away as long as the toxins remain in the paint. This is why painters wear masks as filtering agents when the paint is wet because that is when most of the toxins are released. However, when the paint dries, it still releases the odor along with the toxins which can create issues for those who are exposed over the long term.
The good news is that there is a wide variety of non-toxic paint that is available, containing low amounts of VOCs which present little to no danger to those living or working inside. While no VOC paints are preferable in some ways, the total elimination of all VOCs is an expensive process. This is why you’ll find that many non-toxic varieties contain levels of VOCs that range from 10 grams to less per 1 liter of paint.
