How is Dulux UltraAir different to other paint?
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.
What's the difference between VOC's and Chemical Emissions?
- VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds) are present in certain materials that are used to make paint. Very Low VOC paints can still have HIGH Chemical Emissions.
- Chemical Emissions (fumes) are released from paint into the air whilst painting. You can often smell these for days or weeks after, but even if you can't smell anything they can still be there!
Is this product suitable for those with asthma and allergies?
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.
If I have to use Dulux PRECISION Sealer Binder or another product in conjunction with the Dulux UltraAir system, will it still give me Ultra Low Chemical Emissions?
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.
Is there a Dulux UltraAir Enamel Paint Product?
Currently Dulux UltraAir does not have an enamel product in the range. We would 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.
