At last, a VOC-free gloss paint

At last, a VOC-free gloss paint

July 10, 2018

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.

Don’t settle for low-VOC

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.

Antibacterial

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.

Made in Britain

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.

It seems one or two of our fellow paint manufacturers took objection to our claim of being a “100% VOC-free paint” and made a complaint to the Advertising Standards Agency. Well, the egg is on their face because we won. And, so far as we are aware, we are the only paint manufacturer who has been able to make this claim and prove it...

Four beautiful odourless paint finishes

Matte

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".

Eggshell

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

Silk

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.  

Gloss

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!)
