New Product Review

in Sustainable Building Materials

Kelly Moore has been kicking around a new line of Zero VOC paints – I bought a few gallons of the Green Coat Line (I Have been using the Low-VOC EnvriCoat line for a few years now) and its seems pretty good.  Fairly low cost, $17.33 a gallon with my commercial discount – seemed to work just fine.  KM also has a line called “Yolo” I have not used, but props of some sort for a nice sustainable display in the store, complete with Soy Based ink, FSC certified little brochures – I am guessing they are a third party selling their paint through KM, but I am not 100% on that.  Anyhoo seems worth a whirl though I have not myself, but if anyone has leave a note.  One thing I finally figured out was what exactly some of these mysterious VOCs are – I always new formaldhyde was one, that crap seems to be everywhere, and amonia, but you can also add to the list ethylene glycol and crystalline silica – though for me, the non chemist guy, crystalline silica does not seem particularely horrid.  Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
