Paint distributor The Graphene Company combines all-natural limestone with super-durable graphene, making Graphenstone the most environmentally friendly paint in the world. Lime porosity provides a breathable and nontoxic base, which, combined with the extremely thin and light graphene fibres, creates a paint that promotes healthier environments.
No volatile organic compounds
Graphene is 200 times more conductive than copper and 100 times stronger than steel of the same thickness. Lime naturally absorbs carbon dioxide from the air, and graphene’s super conductivity property improves thermal regulation. This mean lower heating bills and fewer reasons to crank the air conditioner up when the sun is shining.
Did baby come a bit early and you weren’t quite prepared? There’s no more waiting for toxic paint fumes to dry before moving in to the nursery. The paint contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carcinogens, formaldehyde or heavy metals. Reports show that children can suffer long-term health effects from exposure to water-based paints, increasing asthma and respiratory illness.
While water-based paints are better than solvent-based paints, even they might contain low levels of metal pigments. Inhaling the fumes while pregnant could also lead to birth defects, which have been linked to VOCs.
… the UK market focus for Graphenstone paints is initially on three areas: projects with smart, sustainable and eco-build goals; optimum hygiene environments – such as in healthcare, education and catering; and buildings in corrosive or challenging climates.
Rigorous testing and industry awards
As well as numerous industry awards, such as the 2015 “Innovation and sustainability” award at the Beyond Building Barcelona, Graphenstone has collected 16 environmental certifications. The company is the official supplier of paint to the Hotel W in Barcelona; the Museum of Fine Arts in Seville; and the Jinan Sixth People’s Hospital in Jinan, China, as well as many more historical buildings, wineries and fashion stores. Graphenstone is also the only paint in the world to meet the Cradle to Cradle Gold Standard. This extremely rigorous product assessment standard requires testing every two years to provide proof to consumers that manufacturers are striving to uphold their sustainability goals.
If we’re putting solar panels on roofs and striving to use sustainable materials for construction on the outside, shouldn’t we be just as concerned as the quality of our environment inside? This new graphene and lime-based paint could revolutionise the home decorating industry for the good of all.
