A New Era in Paint

August 4, 2009

BOYSEN® KNOxOUT™ represents a big change in what paint can do. Traditionally paint has been used to protect structures such as walls, doors and roofs; now BOYSEN® KNOxOUT™ introduces a new concept – paint that protects people from the ill effects of air pollution.

While most ‘eco-friendly’ paints are focused on low VOC levels to minimize their negative impact on the environment, BOYSEN® KNOxOUT™ establishes a new paradigm for green paints – that of an eco-ACTive paint with Air Cleaning Technology that effectively transforms painted areas into an air purifier that continuously works to reduce air pollution and improve the environment. 

BOYSEN® KNOxOUT™ not only meets the VOC limits set by international paint ecolabeling standards, but it actually has the potential to achieve a net VOC reduction in its lifetime – i.e. it will break down more VOCs in the air when dry than the small amounts of VOCs it has when wet.
