Will a zero-VOC paint seal in offgassing from a primer? A VOC emitting product was used as the primer.

Painters used Miller Performance PVA primer #8140 yesterday all over the interior of our newly remodelled home - it slipped thru. I had wanted zero-VOC paints used throughout - now, I'm wondering if low/no VOC interior paint will seal off the primer offgassing, or somehow reduce it? Or, are we just SOL? :>



We have found that using any of the AFM Safecoat paints will lock in the existing VOC's from previously treated surfaces.

You must use a minimum of 2 coats.

All AFM Safecoat paints have a molecular structure worked into the paint that enables it to create an actually membrane that locks in the existing treatments.
