I just picked up another gallon of paint today for the coworking space. I decided to compare the VOC content of Sherwin Williams Duration paint versus Sherwin Williams Super Paint.
Paint Type g/l lb/gal
Duration 48 0.40
Super Paint 145 1.21
There are 67% more VOC’s in traditional paint than a low-VOC paint. That’s a big difference. Low-VOC paint has almost no smell, though some chemically sensitive people may still notice the VOC odor. The price difference is about $2 per gallon.
