I came up through the DIY ranks, and believe me, I have certainly seen my share of paints, sealants, adhesives, primers and everything else, and used most of them too! They all smell of chemicals, and if exposed to the vapors long enough, you’ll have a major pounding headache, and that’s just the beginning. Many are fortified with such things as ethylene glycol, ammonia, acetone, heavy metals, and perhaps worst of all, formaldehyde. None of which are particularly healthy to inhale.
Now, if you have been reading the news lately, you’ll know that most of the original FEMA trailers that were sent down to New Orleans as temporary housing have since been abandoned. Why? Because federal testing has revealed unsafe levels of formaldehyde residue in each one.
All of the additives I just mentioned above will not be found in Safecoat products. They are the safest paints and primers on the market, yet they will do the job as well as any chemical laced product out there. That’s right. No toxic fumes, virtually odorless, environmentally friendly and they meet or exceed all federal and state air quality regulations, including California! Ya gotta like that!
But that’s what you get with the Safecoat brand, high quality, bio-friendly. Perfect for the do-it-yourselfer for home or garage, shed or basement. No need to get rid of the kids for the day while you paint or caulk, and no need to wear a three part gas mask when you put on a coat of primer either.
They have a very wide selection of products to choose from, including the aforementioned Safecoat adhesive, which will go toe to toe with the best on the market, without all the toxicity. They also feature sealers, specialty coating, clear finishes, and AFM naturals.
AFM naturals are plant based organic penetrating oils and waxes for old wood restoration or new unfinished wood. This stuff naturally penetrates the wood to waterproof and enhance the beauty of all outdoor wood applications, like fencing and decks. The AFM waxes are oil based as well, and are perfect for using inside the home on unfinished woods. This stuff is so safe, you can even use it on children’s furniture and toys without so much as a worry about it being toxic. How’s that for some piece of mind?
Safecoat, the most environmentally friendly products for your home, bar none. Here’s the link, check it out yourself. WOW!
