What to Know About Eco-Friendly Auto Body Paint , Evergreen, Montana

Most auto body paint contains high quantities of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can be very detrimental to one’s health as well as the natural environment. During painting, these toxic compounds can enter the surrounding air and people’s lungs, contributing to pollution and provoking respiratory issues—especially in those with allergies or asthma. Today, top manufacturer PPG Paint® has recently released a special, eco-friendly paint to certain auto body shops for a better painting experience and overall result. Take a look at a few of the specifics below.

What Is Eco-Friendly Paint?

Traditional auto body paint is solvent-borne, which means it contains petrochemicals to thin the paint that easily enter the air. PPG Paint’s eco-friendly variety, meanwhile, is waterborne, which means it contains water as the central paint-thinner, thereby drastically reducing VOC emissions. In fact, some colors and varieties contain no VOCs at all.

What Are the Benefits?
