Bender, I was using the Low VOC (.40 g/l) Promar 200 low sheen today.

1. It covers pretty good considering how low the viscocity is. (great for cutting in!)

2. Got complaints about the smell!

I swear, no matter how good of a job you're doing with ventilation, someone has to complain about the smell. I had to explain that I was practically applying water, and that the paint wasn't hazardous to their health and safety. I told them I had the MSDS handy, and even showed them the label. All I got in return was "You should invest in a fan" "Thanks" was all I could barely deliver without creating a situation. Whiney A-Holes

BTW- Welcome New York!

I've got a question about promar 200 0voc. I'm painting a doctors office and three, maybe four girls have complained that the paint is giving them a headache. Any idea why?
What did you or your crew think of the odor? Often times the mere sight of paint cans and paint being applied can create a negative perception of toxic pollution. Some slacker types may just use this an excuse to get out of work for the day causing a chain reaction.

I cant decide on the odor. I don't find it offensive, just different. I think the fact that it smells unlike traditional paint is what bothers people.

I agree about the sight of a paint can. The ones that get under my skin are the ones who say, "Wow, that paints getting me high"

Followed closely by the, "You missed a spot!" crowd.
