Dulux UltraAir® emits significantly fewer chemical emissions than regular paint, which means fewer fumes not only when you paint, but also for the days and weeks that follow.
VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are in certain materials used to make paint. Very low VOC paints can still have high chemical emissions.
Chemical emissions (fumes) are released from paint into the air while painting. You can often smell these for days or weeks after, but even if you can't smell anything they can still be there.
No, this will not achieve an ultra-low chemical emissions system. When applying Dulux UltraAir® over unpainted surfaces such as set plaster, fibrous plaster, and plasterglass it is recommended Dulux PRECISION® Sealer Binder is used.
Dulux UltraAir® does not have an enamel paint in the range. We recommend using Dulux Aquanamel® if required. This is a water-based, low odour product.
Note - this will not achieve an ultra-low chemical emissions system.
Dulux UltraAir® is certified GREENGUARD Gold. This certification meets additional criteria for sensitive individuals and may reduce the likelihood of one of these sensitivities being triggered.
*Ultra-low chemical emissions: Tested to pass SRIBS emission limits of <1mg/m3 within 3 days.
