Do odorless paints actually exist?
Have you ever wondered if odorless paints actually exist? We are talking about paints that allow you to sleep in your own bed on the same night the room is painted. In this article you will find out what makes paint smell and if you can find odorless paints for your home.
Wall paints are comprised of:
- Pigments, that provide the tone and coverability,
- Binding ingredients, known as resins,
- The main solvent, which is water and
- A few more additives that protect the paint and provide additional properties.
Usually, paints produce an unpleasant smell, because all of the above mentioned ingredients, except for water, include organic and other chemical compounds that emit their owncharacteristic odor.
