What’s NOT in our paint?
Is Lakeland Paints really as good as the brand leaders ?
NO - it is far better because Lakeland Paints is made up to the highest quality and not down to a price. Including Exterior products ? Yes - these were tested over a six year period in all major types of weather environment : Desert, Rainforest, Arctic & Temperate and performed at least as well, if not better, than the brand leaders when applied as directed.
Why use titanium dioxide instead of natural alternatives?
Firstly - it is safe, safe enough to eat. Titanium dioxide is food additive E171. Secondly - natural opacifiers are relatively poor and often need four or five coats of paint to cover properly.
Does Lakeland Paints comply with EU paint directives?
Yes, by law all containers carry the following statement “the VOC content of this product is 0.000 g/L. EU 2010 limit value for this product (cat 1b decorative) is 30g/L.
