HEALTH

 

Indoor air is three times more polluted than outdoor air, and according to the EPA, is considered one of the top 5 hazards to human health. Paints and finishes are among the leading causes.

 
Paints and finishes release low level toxic emissions into the air for years after application. The source of these toxins is a variety of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which, until recently, were essential to the performance of the paint.

Powder coat has the following health benefits:
  • No delayed emissions causing health side effects
  • Reduced risk of sick building syndrome
  • Powder Paint contains no lead
