Collection: Emulsion Paint Eco Friendly Alternative

Graphenstone – the eco-friendly alternative to
emulsion paint

Chances are that the emulsion paint you have been using for your home decorating or work construction projects is formed from an aqueousemulsion containing resins or plastic materials. This emulsion is also likely to use petroleum-based materials in its make-up.
The problem with this is that when such paints are applied and subsequently dry, they give off formaldehyde and what’s known as VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds). These are known to be carcinogenic - so dangerous to your health. What’s more, even when these emulsion paints have dried, they are non-permeable, so can lead to the formation of condensation and mould, neither of which are desirable in the domestic or commercial settings in which the emulsions are used.
Graphenstone emulsion pains are different. Instead of being synthetic, they contain lime, a natural organic product, which means they offer you an eco-friendly emulsion paint that is:
● Free from VOCs
● Formaldehyde-free
● Breathable
● High on the pH scale, so able to prevent fungus and mould formation

Why You Should Consider
An Emulsion Paint Alternative

For generations, painters, decorators and others involved in the construction industry have used traditional emulsion paints on interior walls. This paint gives off odours during the application and drying process that are dangerous to breathe in and therefore damaging to the health of those carrying out the work, as well as those who use the rooms while the emulsion is drying. Therefore, using these paints often requires decorated rooms to remain unoccupied until the fumes have reduced to a safe level.
But now there is an emulsion paint alternative. A paint that does not give off toxic fumes and actually absorbs harmful carbon dioxide in the air.


The Benefits Of Eco Graphenstone v Traditional Emulsion Paint

Graphenstone is a 100% natural and sustainable paint system made
from lime and minerals. Its many benefits include:
● Completely non-toxic
● Zero VOCs
● No plastics
● No formaldehyde or petrochemicals

With graphenstone emulsion paints, decorators can now choose a paint that allows you to breathe clean air on the job, significantly lowering risks to your health.

The high quality and impressive performance of these emulsions also lead to material and labour savings, bringing short and long term benefits to businesses.

TOP 5 ADVANTAGES OF GRAPHENSTONE
EMULSION PAINTS

1
Technology

Our range of emulsions are infused with pure carbon nanotechnology graphene – the strongest material known to science.

This makes graphenstone the first-ever Class 1 strength natural paint in history. It is the only natural paint on the market today with the durability to rival acrylic trade paints.

Graphene also brings unique stretch and elasticity, helping improve coverage, creating the best value natural paint available.

Yet another advantage of graphenstone paints is that they are completely non-toxic, so your brushes can be washed with water without using thinners.

Last, but not least, graphenstone emulsion paints give off no odours, or poisonous fumes, so rooms in which these emulsions have been used can be occupied immediately.


2
Environment

Graphenstone is the most eco-friendly emulsion paint you can use, actively cleaning the air you breathe.

Because it’s formed from lime, it absorbs poisonous carbon dioxide in the air. In fact, every 15L pot absorbs a massive 4.8kg of CO₂, meaning three pots possesses the ability to absorb as much CO₂ as a 250kg tree in a year.

Lime is also highly alkaline with a pH of 12, so NOTHING can grow on it. No mould, no fungus, no bacteria. So the emulsion remains dark spot and damp free.


3
Durability

Standard acrylic paint is given to bubbling up and peeling away from walls. This is because when applied to walls it creates a plastic film which traps moisture. This moisture looks for a way to evaporate and this is what causes the bubbles and peeling.

Graphenstone emulsion paint is different. Because it is made to be breathable, any moisture passes through the paint and evaporates in the room, so there’s no peeling or bubbling.


4
FLEXIBILITY

Coat surfaces with graphenstone emulsion, and you will never see cracks or flakes, making it ideal for all sorts of rooms and all kinds of conditions.

5
FINISH

You’ve no doubt experienced chalky and watery designer paints that require coat after coat. That’s because these paints only contain about 20% solid content with the rest evaporating in a watery vapour. Compare that to Graphenstone’s 70% solid content which gives you a richer, thicker finish and requires fewer coats.


Interior paint applications
Graphenstone emulsion paint has the power to transform how you decorate interiors across every room in the house. And there are benefits to be had for public areas too, thanks to the paint’s natural elements that purify the air we breathe.

Because Graphenstone emulsion paint gives off no poisonous fumes and is suitable for people with chemical intolerance, it’s recommended for use in all kinds of places outside of the home, including:
● Indoor enclosures
● Hospitals
● Nurseries
● Hotels
● Retirement homes

The health benefits resulting from the use of Graphenstone materials for
individuals living in eco-sustainable homes are:
● Improves indoor air quality
● Limits pathogens derived from sick building syndrome
● Prevents growth of mould, bacteria and fungi
● Guarantees safe domestic environments
● Increases overall comfort and quality of life


REASONS TO USE GRAPHENSTONE
EMULSION ALL OVER THE HOME

1
Lounge & Living Areas

Improve the air quality in the areas in which you and your family spend the most time. Graphenstone emulsion draws unhealthy CO₂ out of the air, so time spent at home is time spent inhaling healthier air, thanks to the amazing powers of the paint. And because the emulsion neither bubbles nor peels, you’re left with walls that look their best for longer.

2. Kitchens
Many acrylic paints can’t stand the heat in the kitchen, nor the regular surface cleaning and scrubbing that’s required to remove spillages and splashes. Standard paints also trap in moisture which leads to bubbling, whereas Graphenstone emulsion paints absorb that moisture and release it into the air, keeping your kitchen paintwork looking its best.
What’s more, the Graphenstone emulsion range is as tough and durable and washable as you need a kitchen paint to be.


3. Bedrooms
We spend a big percentage of our lives in bed, so it’s vital that the air we breathe in our bedrooms is of the highest quality. And painting bedroom walls with Graphenstone emulsion is a surefire way to improve the air quality so the air you breathe while you sleep is better for you. And because it’s a baby safe emulsion paint, it’s also ideal for decorating nurseries and children’s bedrooms.


4.
Bathrooms

Bathroom paints need to be damp proof, but sadly, most acrylic paints peel away or bubble up when faced with excessive or frequent dampness. When moisture gets behind the paint it tries to evaporate, pushing the paint away from the wall.

On the other hand, lime-based Graphenstone paint is made from porous materials, allowing moisture to pass through freely, ideal for damp environments like bathrooms, giving you a natural solution to that annoying peeling paint problem.


Surface preparation
When preparing to apply Graphenstone emulsion, the surface needs to be dry, firm and free from impurities which may prevent the paint from fully setting.

Be sure to thoroughly clean the surface of any algae, mould, fungus or other undesirables. Any salt deposits should be brushed away and Neutralysal Premium applied.

If the surface contains a high moisture level, apply StopWater Premium diluted 1:1 with water and paint 24 hours before its application.

If the substrate features scaling or blistering, it’s important to first remove areas that don’t adhere by scraping and brushing and then apply Filler F.


How to apply Graphenstone eco-friendly
emulsion paint alternatives

Apply 2 or 3 coats evenly in a V shape
Paint in sections, starting with the borders
Do not paint over areas that are drying
Always avoid overlapping
Applying too much Graphenstone emulsion can generate micro-cracks.


Storage of your Graphenstone emulsion paint
Always keep your paint in its original package, firmly shut and stored in a cool, dry place.

Avoid extremes of temperature including freezing and direct exposure to the sun.

This emulsion keeps for at least 12 months from the date of manufacture, and even though it may thicken, it will not lose its properties.
