Using environmentally friendly products is a great way to reduce our carbon footprint and help uphold our role as custodians of the planet. The principles and ideals of using sustainable and recycled materials and renewable energy is nothing new. We’ve been seeing more and more eco-friendly and sustainable products entering the interior design industry.
We are always mindful of our corporate responsibility and do all we can to cut waste, be sustainable and recycle whenever possible.
We also love to share with you the most exciting new sustainable products in our industry. For this blog we are delighted to introduce Graphenstone ecological paint company.
Acrylic Paint is the second largest polluter (CO2 output, water pollution, etc) after cement. Application of acrylics is also highly damaging for occupants, so this is a key area of focus for those interested in real change in health and sustainability.
Graphenstone set themselves apart from other conventional paints which contain harmful agents for human health and our planet. After much research they found a formula which fused graphene technology with lime and silicate bases. Their paints are free from VOC’S, carcinogens or toxic substances which also reduce CO2! Due to a natural process, when the lime is carbonating, it absorbs CO2 from the ambient air and cleans the air that you breathe.
These uniquely sustainable, graphene based natural, mineral paints and primers are now available in 35 countries around the world and have recently launched in the UK via Dezeen
Some of the many unique benefits of using Graphenstone paints are:
Beautiful – Deep rich reflective natural mineral colours, with high hide and coverage (14-15m2 per litre)
Sustainable – VOC free (Volatile Organic Compounds are toxic and typical of acrylic paints)
Environmental – Actively Purifying the Air in your space, absorbing CO2, NOx etc, (part of the recognised ‘lime cycle’)
Natural – Rich mineral bases (lime, silicate, clay and other natural ingredients) with a high solid content (50-70%) Unique – Fused with Nobel prize winning carbon ‘graphene’ nano-technology (the strongest material on earth, 200x stronger than steel, stretchable)
Durability – Class 1 strength, unmatched amongst mineral paints (graphene enhanced)
Broad usage – Across Heritage to New Build, a healthier, durable, ecological option… certified Fireproof (Class ‘O’)
