The Paint4U is aware of the need to preserve the environment and the effects that some of the products released by petroleum-based paints can have on the health of the occupants of a dwelling. By the early twentieth century were used solely paints and natural products in the interior paintings. After the technological evolution of alkyd resins then came the synthetic dyes derived from oil that quickly dominated the entire market.
These synthetic paints, in general, are developed with petroleum products and their pigments contain heavy metals and volatile organic compounds may be released
Effects of synthetic dyes
Thus, from the environmental point of view these paints are a way to contribute to the greenhouse effect (the use of petroleum derivatives) and emit pollutants and can contaminate the environment.
From a health standpoint of the occupants of interior spaces painted with synthetic dyes are referenced potential effects on central nervous system, depression, headaches, nausea and vomiting, irritation of the skin, eyes and respiratory tract, anemia, asthma, bronchitis, cancer.
In Europe, manufacturers, retailers and importers of paints and varnishes may require making proof that the products to comply the ecological performance criteria in eco-label (ECOLABEL).
