IMPORTANT Color matching information

  • If you choose a color which has a high pigment content (a very dark color) we may be required to charge an extra $4-$6 per unit as an additional tinting charge. We will contact you about the adjustment via email upon receiving the order.
  • Color matching is not an exact science. We use a computer to read color and produce formulas and is typically 99% accurate, but please be aware prior to ordering that color matches may deviate up to 5% and be considered an accurate industry match. Please consider ordering test quarts before placing a large tinted paint order.
  • There are no returns on tinted paint unless the mistake is ours. Our return policy.
  • Tintable to thousands of colors with zero VOC nontoxic colorants. If you would like your paint tinted to a color by another color provider (ex Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams etc…) please feel free to type your choice color into the box provided. Please include all information pertinent to the color such as full name and correct spelling, and any associated numbers. Occasionally we do not have access to a formula for a color. We may ask you to mail in a color chip so that we can accurately match your paint. Please click here for information on the color matching process and how to send custom matches.
SAMPLES ARE AVAILABLE IN WHITE ONLY.

Product Description

AFM Safecoat ZVOC Paint is a premium quality, fast curing paint designed for areas in which the health of the occupants is a concern: schools, hospitals, homes, offices – anywhere people want to reduce their exposure to toxic chemicals. AFM Safecoat ZVOC Paint has almost no odor during application and are odor free once cured. They contain no formaldehyde, ammonia, crystalline silica, or ethylene glycol. Provides a soft sheen for areas not generally exposed to high traffic. 

USE ON:

AFM Safecoat ZVOC Paint can be used on new or existing, properly primed interior walls and ceilings, properly cured and primed plaster (below 10 pH), ma- sonry, woodwork and primed metal.

Surface prep:

Surfaces should be sanded and cleaned of dirt, grease, mildew and oil. Cleaning with an odor- less, dye-free, all-purpose cleaner such as SafeChoice Super Clean is recommended. To achieve aneven, consistent finish, the underlying surface must be evenly sealed. Previously painted surfaces in poor condition need to be scraped and sanded smooth before priming with Safecoat Transitional Primer. Always spot test for adhesion over prior coatings.

Before application, coat new wallboard or sheetrock with Safecoat New Wallboard Primecoat. Sand porous new wood and prime with Safecoat Transitional Primer. Water and other stains must be blocked so they do not bleed through. In all cases, the best finish will be achieved with a primer and two finish coats.

Environmental conditions are crucial: if the air temperature is too hot or too cold, the product will not cure properly; if the air or the wood is too dry, or there is too much moisture in or on the surface, other problems may result. In addition, many surfaces contain water-soluble tannins or acids which are activated by the application of water based products and will “bleed through” to the surface. All of these conditions can be avoided with proper preparation.

Finally, Safecoat products are formulated to work together. Optimum results are best obtained by using a Safecoat primer, for example, before applying Safecoat paint. Of course, always read the application instructions before beginning the job.

Application:

Always have adequate ventilation. Surface should be completely dry before application. Before using, stir well, then apply with a high-quality nylon or synthetic bristle brush or roller of appropriate nap (1/4”-3/8” nap recommended). Do not apply in thick films or load paint onto the sur face. Thin coats are better than one thick coat.

2 coats is usually sufficient for most jobs, but darker colors or substrate may require a 3rd coat.

coverage:

One gallon of AFM Safecoat ZVOC Paint covers approximately 350 square feet.

Recoating:

Under normal conditions, Safecoat Zero VOC paints can be recoated after 4 hours.

For best results, wait at least 8 hours before recoating. Normal conditions include: a dry surface, access to fresh air flow, moderate humidity, and temperatures above 55°F. Thick application, high humidity, or conditions other than normal will cause paint to dry and cure more slowly. Drying and curing time can be accelerated by moving fresh air over the painted surface, but recoating before the time period noted above is not recommended.
