    Thankyou Adrian for your comments.

    You are correct in that Dulux Trade products must stay within strict legal guidelines for VOC content, for which all our formulations are compliant. We have a number of Eggshell finish products with varying levels of VOC content for example a Water Based, Low VOC Dulux Trade Diamond Eggshell, and a solvent based High VOC Dulux Trade Eggshell suitable for use on trim only. We do recommend only to use our solvent based Dulux Trade Eggshell in well ventilated areas, however we are very concerned about your experience of high odors, especially as you have taken ventilation into consideration on the job. Please could you contact our customer advice centre at your earliest convenience either by calling [protected] or by email at [email protected], if possible please quote the batch number (which should be found on the lid) so we can confirm the details of the product and batch and are better able to follow up your concerns and take action if necessary.

    Further information on VOC legistation can be found at

    Many Thanks
    Rachel Toolan Dulux Trade Brand Manager Colour.
