The Hong Kong Consumer Council investigated that five latex paints contain lead and arsenic, which is harmful to health. Reading volume: Source: Wen Wei Po, 2011 draft, Chinese paint information 10 water-based latex paints suitable for indoor walls or ceilings. The VOC content of all samples met the standard

according to Hong Kong's Wen Wei Po, the Hong Kong Consumer Council tested 10 types of water-based emulsion paint suitable for indoor walls or ceilings, and found that the volatile organic compounds (VOC) content of all samples met the standard. Among them, 5 latex paints contain trace heavy metal lead or arsenic. Although the content meets the requirements of environmental labels, long-term exposure will affect health, such as damaging the nervous system and increasing the risk of skin cancer

the volatile organic compounds (VOC) content of interior wall emulsion paint is controlled by the air pollution management (volatile organic compounds) regulations. The Consumer Council tested 10 types of water-based emulsion paint, including duluxi, huancai, AFM safecoat, golden chrysanthemum and other brands. The results showed that the VOC content of the lowest 6 samples was less than 10 grams per liter, and the highest sample was 25 grams per liter. Although the content was different, All samples comply with the statutory upper limit of 50 grams per liter in the ready to use state

Hong Kong Consumer Council but the size of the effective space will affect the mechanical performance of the whole machine. Yesterday (the 17th) pointed out that VOC may stimulate the eyes, nose and throat, leading to headache, dizziness and nausea. However, long-term exposure to the environment containing high levels of VOCs can lead to respiratory diseases and even nervous system problems. The Council also suggested that water-based paint could be used to effectively reduce the risk caused by VOC. During and after painting, try to open doors and windows to introduce fresh air, or install fans to maintain air circulation

this test also detected the contents of formaldehyde and heavy metals, including lead, arsenic, mercury, cadmium, selenium and hexavalent chromium. The results showed that the different color samples of four latex paints contained trace lead, with the content ranging from 20ppm to 38ppm. Regular contact with the extruder with low export unit price would damage the nervous system, red blood cells, affect intelligence and limb coordination in recent years, and fetuses and children were particularly vulnerable to lead. There is also a small amount of arsenic in different color samples of latex paint, with the content ranging from 2.1ppm to 2.5ppm. Long term exposure or excessive intake of arsenic may increase the risk of skin cancer, bladder cancer and heart disease. The above samples containing trace lead or arsenic meet the requirements of the current environmental protection label
