VOCs, which stand for volatile organic compounds, are organic chemicals that produce vapors at room temperature and normal atmospheric pressure. These vapors, depending on the chemical makeup of the underlying organic compound, can have short-term or long-term adverse effects on a person’s health. Some common sources of VOCs include the burning of fuels such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, industrial chemicals such as benzene, solvents such as toluene and xylene, paints, glues, and perchloroethylene which is a principal dry cleaning solvent.
The EPA has recognized the ubiquity of these chemicals in commonly used organic compounds and it has taken the initiative to warn people about their negative effects. It has regulated the use of VOCs in chemicals by creating a classification of VOCs, releasing a publicly available list of those that are detrimental to the health of the nation’s residents, and requiring products to carry certifications and labels based on the concentration of VOCs and the risk that they pose. These health risks can include odor, irritation, chronic toxicity, and carcinogenicity.
Since paints are used everywhere, the quest for creating a painting material that eschews the use of traditional organic VOC-filled compositions in favor of safer alternatives has been a long one. Southern Diversified Products managed to build such a product in 2002 due to its collaboration with the University of Southern Mississippi. The result was the birth of Mythic Paint, a non-toxic, zero VOC, line of premium latex paints.
A spokesperson for Pigment Paint Supply talks about the benefits of the non-toxic paint products from Mythic Paint by saying, “VOCs are of concern as both indoor and outdoor pollutants. Outdoors VOCs from industrial processes and vehicle emissions are dangerous because of their ability to create photochemical smog under certain conditions. However, Indoors VOCs which are found in a lot of common household organic compounds can also be responsible for a host of conditions that affect humans including, in some cases, cancer. Mythic Paint products are designed to solve this exact problem posed by the excessive presence of Indoors VOCs in painting materials. Mythic Paint products get rid of the dangerous fumes as they are made from latex and they are formulated using confidential, non-toxic, solvent-free, high-performance ingredients. They don’t include any carcinogens and are completely environmentally safe. Choosing Mythic Paint products for your home or commercial property showcases a dedication toward the health of your family members and, in the case of businesses, the health of the employees and guests who use the property regularly. If you are looking to make that choice in Charlottesville, VA, Pigment Paint Supply can set you up with the best products from Mythic Paint for the best price that they are currently offered.
