A change for the better

Did you know that indoor air quality can be 2 to 5 times worse than outdoor air quality?1

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are carbon-based chemicals that contribute to atmospheric pollution. Dulux UltraAir has Ultra Low Chemical Emissions* which doesn't negatively affect indoor air quality.

What are Chemical Emissions?

Traditionally in paint we have always measured VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). We are now talking about a new measurement, Chemical Emissions. Watch this video to learn more about these concepts and why they're an important consideration when undertaking a paint project.
