Traditional paint removers are hazardous to the health of the workers who use them, especially for people who use them on a continuous basis. They usually contain high levels of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which make a person dizzy and nauseous when inhaled. HAPs and VOCs have been known to cause various kinds of respiratory ailments, especially when inhaled for a prolonged period of time. They can also irritate the skin and eyes. In this litigious world where companies need to protect their public reputations against lawsuits, it is very important, for both practical and financial reasons, to prioritize the health and safety of their workers by finding better alternatives to dangerous chemicals.
Traditional paint removers are usually toxic and harsh for the environment. They usually contain chemicals that deplete the ozone layer. They produce hazardous waste that are non-biodegradable and need special disposal. Some of them are so toxic, abrasive and hazardous that the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) limits or prohibits using them in industrial settings. This can pose a problem to companies who rely on them if the product they have suddenly becomes illegal to use.
