Center and AkzoNobel agree that serving customers like you means

You have probably heard people discussing
"waterborne" and "solvent-borne" paints and wondered how they are
different. Does choosing one mean better results and the other mean
better for the environment?
Simply put, solvent-borne
coatings use petrochemical products as the main solvent for thinning
the paint. Although effective, this method releases volatile organic
compounds (VOC) into the atmosphere during the painting process.
Waterborne coatings use water as the primary thinning method which
greatly reduces VOC emissions.
Do waterborne coatings
perform as well as solvent-borne? Absolutely. Advanced technology has
made waterborne coatings equal in performance to solvent-borne coatings.
The waterborne coatings from AkzoNobel meet or exceed the highest
standards for car repair.
