One of the most serious source of pollution in the production of doors and windows is the evaporation of synthetic solvents contained in paint.
This evaporation occurs mainly during the application of the paint itself with the consequent pollution of the production site and surrounding areas.
Evaporation continues, in a microscopic way, during the “life” of the painted item for a very long time, thus polluting the environment where it is fitted.
For this reason, Oikos has been using, for more than 10 years, for its painted panels and components, in its factory, water-based paint which drastically reduce the use of solvents with a consequent remarkable improvement of the working environment, and a reduction of the company’s impact on its surrounding areas, as well as a greater quality of the product supplied to the customer.
Oikos uses Adler water-based paints, the first manufacturer to obtain the Catas Quality Award certification, which guarantees a series of performance characteristics, both of the paint product and of the paint applied (film of dry paint).
