A pure plant based solvent (a nice white spirit!) used for diluting the Aglaia plant-based oil paints for wood and metalwork and cleaning surfaces and brushes.
- Technical Documents
They are made from environmentally friendly, renewable materials; conventional paints are still often based on petro-chemicals (causing huge environmental problems) and fossil fuels like crude oil (that are too precious to burn).
There is no human health hazard to users or those living and working in the space afterwards.
100% VOC-free naturally.
These products have a full declaration of ingredients and descriptions of their composition and origination, unlike many of the paints claiming to be 'green' on the market today.
They are technically good i.e. easy-to-use, hard-wearing and proven over a large number of years on thousands of square metres of wall and wood. However, because they do not have conventional artificial drying agents etc, instructions must be followed.
They are highly vapour permeable and therefore compatible with other natural and traditional building materials. They can directly help to control damp/condensation within a building.
