Autobody Source’s latest guide suggests that one of the most significant advantages of waterborne paints is their reduced environmental impact. In particular, such paints do not contain harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), which are known air pollutants.

The report also points to the health benefits that waterborne paints offer to employees. With fewer VOCs and toxins to breathe in during shifts, workers can enjoy a much healthier working environment. Moreover, such coatings are less flammable, thereby reducing the risk of workplace injuries.

In addition, using waterborne paints can prove a cost-effective move for businesses in the long run. This is because such products require fewer thinners, additives, and hardeners than solvent-based paints, reducing the overall expense of each paint job.

As The Autobody Source notes, waterborne paints do not result in inferior coatings compared to their solvent-based counterparts. They offer a high-gloss finish that reduces the need for an additional clear coat finish and the coating is heat and corrosion-resistant.

The guide concludes by sharing tips on how to make the transition from one paint type to another seamless. In particular, it highlights the need to update certain equipment like spray guns and to factor in the longer curing time for waterborne paints.
