Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt has been reformulated to provide specifiers and their clients with a more sustainable solution that is 99.9% VOC (volatile organic compound) free. The new product has also been Tested & Approved by professional decorators for added reassurance that it delivers the same great opacity and coverage as the previous formulation.

Dulux Trade has reformulated its popular water-based Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt so that it is 99.9% VOC (volatile organic compound) free[1]. This means that it has a reduced impact on indoor air quality and a lower carbon footprint when compared with the previous formulation. The enhanced sustainability benefits also make the new Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt perfect for projects that need to comply with the BREEAM[2] and LEED[3] accreditations – and IAC Gold certifications are also available. This can help specifiers to showcase carbon footprint reductions and deliver compliant projects with no compromise on product lifecycle or durability.

Furthermore, whilst the sustainability credentials of the paint have been improved, Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt still delivers the same coverage and opacity to ensure a quality finish.

Peter Howard, Sustainability & CSR Lead at AkzoNobel, said: “Dulux Trade is determined to provide specifiers and their clients with a range of high-quality products that meet or exceed green building accreditations, helping them to meet the sustainability requirements of every project. We’re working hard to reduce our impact on indoor air quality and provide products with a lower carbon footprint versus their previous formulations. It is by creating initiatives and products like Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt that we are making it easier for our customers to reduce their impact, too.”

As part of the upgrade, Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt has also achieved the Dulux Trade Tested & Approved seal of approval. This means that it has undergone rigorous laboratory testing, and testing with professional decorators, to ensure that it lives up to expectations and genuinely delivers on the benefits promised.

Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt is now available to specify via leading platforms, including NBS. For more information on Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt, visit: www.duluxtrade.co.uk/vinyl-matt.
