Did you know that by 2012 Wisconsin body shops will be required to switch from solvent-based, toxic paints to a water-based finishing process. If you’re in the Eau Claire area one body shop, Superior Auto Body, already is using a VOC-free paint called Aqua-Based Plus. The movement away from solvent-based paints is great news for all of us. These paints are bad for the environment and bad for us too, especially the workers who use them. We should all be able to breathe a little easier with the water-based paints.
