PRODUCTS & TECHNOLOGY: Zero-VOC Paint Colorants

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Comment | More

BASF introduced PureOptions, described as a point-of-sale paint-tinting system that can be used to produce a range of paint colors with low odor and zero VOC content as measured in accordance with U.S. EPA Method 24.

 

The colorants are formulated to retain optimal paint performance properties such as gloss, color reproducibility, and blocking resistance without the addition of VOCs, the company says. The products also contain no alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEOs), which are considered environmentally detrimental. The colorants are reported to be produced using the same processes as the company’s other colorant products.

The company says retailers will be able to use the colorants with most current in-store tinting systems, and says it has developed a patent-pending plastic container with a resealable lid for efficient transfer
of the zero-VOC colorants into point-of-sale dispensers. The container is designed to reduce the chances of contamination or spillage.
