Glidden's Zero-VOC Paints

In 1992 The Glidden Company surprised the interior paint world by offering a latex paint without any volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs in paints have been implicated in indoor air quality (IAQ) problems and environmental illness cases. There has been a strong trend toward lower VOC formulations, spurred in part by provisions in the Clean Air Act of 1990 and some state and local regulations that are even stricter.
