Healthier Material Guidance

Healthy Building Network (HBN)’s Healthier Material Guidance is based on our research into common product content and health hazards. The information is organized into recommendations using a simplified Hazard Spectrum, where products in the green categories are typically better options than those in the orange or red, and products in the yellow categories are generally less preferable than those at the top, but are better choices than those at the bottom.

Ecoguidance

EcoGuidance represents the environmental impact of a product. Each product category is rated through a unique algorithm developed and regularly reviewed for EcoGuide by industry experts. EcoGuidance is determined by a unique set of category-specific characteristics comprised of manufacturer-supplied data, ecolabels and third-party certifications. Products without EcoGuidance are not a reflection of that product’s environmental impact, only an indication that not enough data is currently available. Encourage your favorite product manufacturers to submit their product information to EcoGuide for review.

GS-11 Certified

This product is not GS-11 certified.

The Green Seal-11 (GS-11, edition 3.2) standard is an industry leader. It prohibits the use of specific substances, including: preservatives that emit formaldehyde into the paint over time; heavy metals such as lead and mercury; and any chemical or material which is considered a carcinogen, mutagen, reproductive toxicant, hazardous air pollutant, or ozone depleting substance.

APE-Free

This product contains APEs.

Alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEs) are a chemical group of concern that are a high priority to avoid. APEs and their break down products have been shown to have endocrine disrupting properties. Alternate chemicals are available, and a transition is underway in the market.

Low VOC Content (Base)

This product has (No Recorded Data) grams per liter.

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are the most well-known issue related to paint. VOC content characterizes the amount of VOCs in grams per liter (g/L) present in a product. VOCs can be hazardous to the health of painters and building occupants. Selecting paints that have low or very low VOC content can reduce potential exposure.

VOC Content (base) levels are defined as very low ≤10 g/L; low ≤50g/L; and standard >50 g/L.

Low colorant VOC content

Low colorant VOC content

This product has (No Recorded Data) grams per liter.

Colorants can add VOCs and other hazardous content to paints. At a minimum, specify paints with colorants that contain ≤50g/L of VOCs. Prefer paints with colorants that do not increase the VOC content of the base paint when tinted.

Low VOC Emissions

Low VOC Emissions

This product is not low VOC emission certified.

Some volatile chemicals that may be emitted from paints are not captured in VOC content testing. Some of these chemicals are captured by emission testing. Emissions certification using the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Standard Method for Testing and Evaluation of VOC Emissions limits some specific high concern chemical emissions.

Not a specialty paint

This product is not a specialty paint.

Specialty paints like dry-erase and magnetic paints commonly contain hazardous content not typically associated with standard latex paints. This can include asthmagenic isocyanates and hazardous solvents.

No antimicrobial health claims

This product makes antimicrobial health claims.

Avoid paints marketed as “antimicrobial” and claiming or implying a health benefit. Water-based paints contain preservatives that protect them from spoiling during storage. Preservatives can also help protect painted surfaces, once dry, from the growth of mold and mildew. “Antimicrobial” or “microbicidal” paints can have pesticides added to them beyond what is needed for standard preservation, and manufacturers may make claims that painted surfaces can kill bacteria or other germs that can make us sick. To date no evidence suggests that the use of such products results in healthier populations, and the incorporated antimicrobials can negatively impact human health.
