Color is the heart and soul of paint. Color is well known to impact mood and health: a beautiful space is the ideal setting for healthy living. At AFM, health is top priority, and wide selection of paints is available to you in thousands of appealing color options to fit your home or building project. Choose from original AFM Ambiance collection of over 900 color choices, or unique new Ayurveda Essence color palette designed for healing, harmony and balanced living. Please visit AFM Ambience and Ayurveda Essence for color options, names and their codes.
If you want us to tint your paint using our specially formulated non toxic tinting system, please fill out color code and name while ordering your paint. Remember that these are computer rendered colors and are only an approximation of the actual color. Color appearance will vary by degree of gloss, lighting and method of application. We recommend color sampling to assure accurate color rendition for your particular installation.

Use on:
New or existing, properly primed interior walls and ceilings, properly cured and primed plaster (below 10 pH), masonry, woodwork and primed metal.
Surface preparation:
Surfaces should be sanded and cleaned of dirt, grease, mildew and oil. Cleaning with an odorless, dye-free, all-purpose cleaner such as SafeChoice® Super Clean is recommended. To achieve an even, consistent finish, the underlying surface must be evenly sealed. Previously painted surfaces in poor condition need to be scraped and sanded smooth before priming with Safecoat® Transitional Primer. Always spot test for adhesion over prior coatings. Before application, coat new wallboard or sheetrock with Safecoat® New Wallboard Primecoat HPV. Sand porous new wood and prime with Safecoat® Transitional Primer. Water and other stains must be blocked so they do not bleed through. In all cases, the best finish will be achieved with a primer and two finish coats. Environmental conditions are crucial: if the air temperature is too hot or too cold, the product will not cure properly; if the air or the wood is too dry, or there is too much moisture in or on the surface, other problems may result. In addition, many surfaces contain water-soluble tannins or acids which are activated by the application of water based products and will “bleed through” to the surface. All of these conditions can be avoided with proper preparation. Finally, Safecoat products are formulated to work together. Optimum results are best obtained by using a Safecoat primer, for example, before applying Safecoat paint. Of course, always read the application instructions before beginning the job.

Always have adequate ventilation. Surface should be completely dry before application. Before using, stir well, then apply with a high-quality nylon or synthetic bristle brush or roller of appropriate nap (1/4”-3/8” nap recommended). Do not apply in thick films or load paint onto the surface. Thin coats are better than one thick coat. For spraying, dilute if necessary with up to ½ pint of water per gallon. Use an airless sprayer, minimum 2000 p.s.i., with a .015-.017 tip. Use a 60 mesh filter. When spraying, do not substitute back-rolling for a second coat. Always use a painter's mask when spraying. For full-coverage application, overlap preceding application with ¼ to ½ the fan width at a distance of 18” from surface. Always have adequate ventilation. Do not apply on cold, damp days or if surface, container or air temperature is below 55°F. Cold temperatures may cause material to thicken. If this occurs, warm paint to 70+°F and shake or stir vigorously to reduce viscosity. Note: these instructions are intended to be general only and not exhaustive. The applicator should determine which preparation and techniques are best suited to the specific surface.
One gallon of Safecoat® Zero VOC Eggshell covers approximately 350 square feet in one coat depending on surface porosity. Untreated drywall will require several coats.
Under normal conditions, Safecoat® Zero VOC Eggshell can be recoated after 4 hours. For best results, wait at least 8 hours before recoating. Normal conditions include: a dry surface, access to fresh air flow, moderate humidity, and temperatures above 55°F. Thick application, high humidity, or conditions other than normal will cause paint to dry and cure more slowly. Drying and curing time can be accelerated by moving fresh air over the painted surface, but recoating before the time period noted above is not recommended.

Clean tools and equipment while still wet with a solution of SafeChoice® Super Clean and warm water.
Unlike conventional paints, Safecoat is made without formaldehyde preservatives or toxic mildewcides or fungicides. Do not contaminate. Store in airtight containers. Do not use when indoor or surface temperature is below 55°F. Do not freeze.

Health precautions:

As with all coatings, keep container tightly closed and out of the reach of children. Do not take internally. Always use adequate ventilation. Wear a mask when sanding and avoid breathing sanding dust. Avoid contact with skin and eyes and avoid breathing of spray vapors and spray mist. If you are chemically sensitive, always test for personal tolerance.


Limited liability:
Safecoat® products are guaranteed not to be defective when properly applied. Liability express or implied is limited to replacement of product or refund of purchase price and does not include liability for labor costs or consequential damages. Variable factors out of manufacturer's control, such as environmental conditions, application techniques, and surface conditions are critical to results obtained. Users are expected to exercise reasonable care to determine suitability of the product for each application. This limited warranty may not be modified or extended by manufacturer's representatives, distributors or dealers of AFM products. We particularly recommend that users always test in small inconspicuous areas before application to the entire surface.
