Ever felt dizzy from paint fumes? The effect is magnified when painting indoors and is even worse if it is a child that is exposed.
Indoor air quality is important. Not only do you want to minimise the fumes while painting, but you also want the paint odour to disappear quickly so the area can be put into service faster without putting the occupants at risk. Improving indoor air quality can also help prevent headaches, asthma, nausea, dizziness, respiratory complaints, allergic reactions and improve general well-being and provide a better working environment for the professional or amateur painter.
Environmental Choice approved and low odour since 1996, Resene Zylone Sheen has always been a popular choice for commercial and residential projects as well as those sensitive to environmental concerns. Celebrating 10 years of Resene Zylone Sheen being an environmentally preferable Environmental Choice approved finish, Resene chemists developed a no added VOCs version. Resene Zylone Sheen Zero (see Data Sheet D302) combines the popular low sheen of Resene Zylone Sheen without adding any unwanted organic compounds (VOCs).
Today just 8% of the decorative paint Resene sells is solventborne, while the average per litre VOC levels of Resene decorative paint sales have dropped by over 90% in the last three decades. Innovations, such as Resene Enamacryl, Resene Lustacryl and Resene SpaceCote waterborne enamels, now mean that it is possible to select a Resene Environmental Choice approved waterborne product for most applications, where once only solventborne products were available.

To enable you to get the Resene colours you know and love, Resene has pioneered unique Resene Decorative Colourants with no added VOCs, enabling a full spectrum of colours to be tinted into Resene decorative paints without adding any unwanted VOCs. Now that’s fresh thinking.
