Creating a healthier home with Wattyl paint


High levels of toxins within the home – such as the VOCs contained in paints, furnishings and household cleaning products – have fostered a new generation of safer, healthier finishes and lifestyle choices.

Wattyl has taken the lead in safe paint finishes with the launch of its most advanced paint in the 104-year history of the brand.

I.D Advanced is an ultra-low VOC formula with less than 1g of VOCs per litre – a level that far exceeds green-building requirements.  Most other ultra-premium brands contain VOC levels up to sixteen times that of I.D Advanced.

Most importantly, Wattyl has provided an affordable, durable, easy to apply product for the DIYer that will provide a healthier home living environment for all Australians.

I.D Advanced has not sacrificed any convenience factors in the new formulation.  The paint counts ease of application and superior durability as two of its key features.  w1

The paint is designed to be used throughout the entire interior of the home – including bathrooms and kitchens – with its Total Protection Technology™ delivering a new level of protection.   This means the paint will resist the growth of mould and fungus while offering advanced cleanability, washability and stain resistance – essential for bathing and food preparation areas.

Bedrooms and nurseries are other areas where an extremely low VOC paint finish is in very high demand.

Wattyl I.D Advanced is the only paint to carry both GECA (Good Environment Choice Australia) and APAS (Australian Paint Approval Scheme) accreditation.

In a recent independent study of Australian interior paints* the Wattyl brand was shown to offer a superior level of durability, meaning the paints offer the most resistance to rubbing and touching and are less likely to turn shiny after intense cleaning.

And for the DIYer, application has never been easier – touch dry in 30 minutes and ready for recoat in two hours.  Coverage is up to 16m2 per litre.w3

Wattyl I.D Advanced interior paint formula is available in water-based matt, low sheen and satin finishes plus Ceiling White.

Available nationally from Wattyl Paint Centres, Mitre 10, Home, Timber & Hardware and other leading paint specialists, Wattyl I.D Advanced retails from $71.90 for a 4L can.
