Little Knights is delighted to announce that our antibacterial gloss paint, suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, has now been independently verified as being 100% VOC-free. Following rigorous testing, it now has the same certification as all the other paint finishes in range, whereby it releases NO toxic emissions into the air, only water.
This means that the entire home can now be painted in complete safety, using VOC-free paint.
VOCs (volatile organic compound) are chemical pollutants that turn into vapours as paint dries. Many paints are promoted as being “low VOC”, giving the impression that, because they are water-based, they are safe. However, they still contain these chemicals. A study by research scientists from Harvard University and Kalstad University in Sweden found that children sleeping in bedrooms containing fumes from water-based paints were two to four times more likely to suffer allergies and asthma.
Little Knights is available in 42 beautiful colours, four different finishes and in tin sizes ranging from a small sample tin through to a 5-litres. Click to view the range.
Little Knights paint contains a unique and fully-certified antimicrobial additive that is effective against all known bacteria and helps to control growth of mould and mildew.
Little Knights paint is manufactured in Northamptonshire. Mark Gardner, the inventor behind Little Knights, is a pioneer in this field and has an extensive portfolio behind him. Mark felt that there was no paint on the marketplace that was truly as safe as it could be, and so he designed Little Knights, a completely solvent-free and antibacterial solution.
We have received several calls from people asking for help with a bizarre issue they are having with a well-known brand of paint. After painting their homes with this paint, an odd smell was noticed that many compared to cat’s urine or rotten eggs.
For a solid, flat and elegant finish that is easy to touch up when required, matte paint is ideal for creating a gentle, soothing finish. It helps to conceal flaws too, making it a good choice for older walls with "character".
Has slightly more lustre than a matte finish, low-sheen rather than shiny. This attractive finish resists stains better than matte paint, and is easier to maintain
Creates an attractive and highly durable high sheen finish, an ideal choice if you want to make a room look bigger. While it is the easiest to clean (just wipe with a damp cloth) Silk paint’s light reflecting properties do make it more difficult to touch up because any difference in sheen will be apparent. It will make imperfections in your walls more noticeable, so it is worth investing a bit of extra time on surface preparation to make your walls as smooth as possible.
Even our gloss paint is zero-VOC! An easy-to-apply, non-drip antibacterial gloss paint that provides a hardwearing, wipe-clean finish for interior and exterior wood and metal. (Please note, the gloss does not share the formaldehyde-absorbing properties of the emulsion paint, but there's still no safer gloss paint on the market!)
