What’s in Your Paint?
Sherwin-Williams and PPG Architectural Finishes have settled FTC charges that they misled people into thinking the paints they sold didn’t contain VOCs — compounds that can hurt the environment and your health. The companies will stop claiming Dutch Boy Refresh and Pure Performance interior paints contain “zero VOCs.”
While it may be true that these uncolored base paints don’t contain VOCs, people usually buy tinted paint, and adding tint adds VOCs.
