Dunn-Edwards Debuts Zero-VOC Paint

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Comment | More

Dunn-Edwards Corp. (Los Angeles, Calif.) announced the launch of Enso, described as a premium, low-odor, zero-VOC paint that generates virtually no odor during or after application. The absence of odor makes the product a candidate for use in occupied spaces such as homes, hotels, schools, and hospitals, the company says.

The product is reported to offer performance comparable to that of premium conventional paints. Brad Wheeler, product manager, said the paint is based on a new resin technology that allows for a harder surface without the use of organic solvents.  The product also is easy to apply, offers flow and leveling that produce a smooth finish, and delivers a high degree of hide and washability, the company says.

The product is available in a primer and in flat, eggshell, and semi-gloss finishes, and comes in a full range of colors, from light to dark shades.

As is the case with all the company’s products, the paint contains no ethylene glycol, which was removed from paint formulas in 1984. Ethylene glycol is listed as a hazardous air pollutant and toxic air contaminant, and can be harmful to humans, the company said.
