Life Paint’s Aqua-Life products were developed to replace traditional oil based alkyd-type resin technology. With today’s stringent VOC regulations, and the limited low VOC solvents available, Life Paint researched a resin technology that has been used for over ten years successfuly in Europe. This resin type allowed for extremely low VOC manufacturing, very low ordor, and it’s application resembles that of traditional oil based products. In fact, once the product is cured, the coating left is just as a traditional alkyd is. The main difference between old traditional, oil-based, alkyd resin paints and Life Paint’s Aqua-Life is the subsitution of smelly petroleum based solvents for water. So go ahead, breathe easy, and take the plunge into water. It’s more refreshing.
