AUSTIN ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS PAINTING

ZERO VOC VS. NATURAL PAINTS

Zero VOC refers to volatile organic compounds that are not harmful to the environment and humans. 

 

It is important to note that Zero VOC paints are enviromentlally friendly and safe paints to use but are not the same as Natural Paints. Zero VOC paints are still made with Acrylics/Latex .
 

Natural Paint products are derived from minerals and eco-sustainable resources, not petroleum resources. Mineral paints are different than acrylic or latex paints because of their molecular structure, their resin type, and the other ingredients. Mineral-based paints have been around for centuries and are widely used in Europe and Asia. 


ZERO VOC OPTIONS

For Zero Voc products we have some affordable options available for interior painting. There are no Acrylic/Latex Zero VOC options available for Exterior Painting.

"We recently had the majority of our 3100 square foot house painted (interior). Steven's two man crew knocked it out in less than 4 days. They did the walls, and all doors and trim and did an excellent job. The price was extremely reasonable and the workmanship superb. There was a lot more prep work that they took on that wasn't part of the initial walk through, but they took it in stride and knocked it out.

We provided our own paint, and they worked with us to make sure that the paint we chose was a good match for the surfaces that were being painted over, and that saved us a lot of headache in the long run."

Advantages of using Natural Mineral Based Paint - Romobio Products

 

Breathability

  • RomaBio Mineral Paints micro-crystalline structure allows air and moisture vapor to permeate through the surface into the substrate, providing a healthy exchange of air.

  • RomaBio Mineral Paints provide up to 95% permeability when applied to non-painted product surfaces.

 

Durability

  • Because of the micro-crystalline bond formed by RomaBio Mineral Paints, they create a more durable coating.

  • Durable coatings mean less frequent applications of paint, saving material and labor costs, as well as reducing carbon footprint.

 

Luminosity & Color

  • Because of dynamic color refraction due to the high mineral content, our color palates are more vibrant and beautiful providing more depth and light.

  • Using natural, earth oxide tints allows UV stability and provides decades of endurance without color loss unlike acrylic which can show significant fading over time.

 

Naturally Mold Resistance

  • Due to high mineral content and natural high alkalinity, RomaBio Mineral Paints are inherently resistant to mold and fungal growth.

  • Because of acrylic paints molecular structure and lower PH, they are more prone to grow mold.

 

Odorless & Toxin Free

  • RomaBio Mineral Paints do not contain solvents, are virtually odorless, and have no toxic emissions.

  • Acrylic paints can contain a combination of solvents, petrochemicals, phthalates, and biocides, and always a certain amount of VOC and TVOC.

 

Fire-Resistance

  • RomaBio Mineral Paints are inherently non-combustible and have excellent resistance as well as reaction to fire.

  • Acrylic paints contain petrochemicals and acrylic, which are more likely to burn in a fire.

 

Sustainability

  • Potassium silicate is the primary binder in our mineral paints – a natural, raw material.

  • Acrylic paints are derived from a chemical process of petrol refinement to create a resin that when mixed with certain coalescing agents creates a paint product.
