Cromology the art of professional painting


Air Quality : a proactive process in product innovation, beyond the local regulatory requirements in the countries where Cromology operates


Cromology constantly strives to minimise VOC emissions through its innovations that go beyond the regulatory requirements in the countries where it is active, while also offering the best possible quality and performance.

In 2016, new products meeting the requirements of even the most demanding labels in terms of VOC content(1) (Ecolabel, TÜV) or VOC emissions(2) (A+, TÜV) accounted for more than 60% of sales of products less than three years old. In France, for example, Tollens and Zolpan launched products with the German TÜV label, which demands a VOC content of less than 1 g/l for interior paints, which is 30 times lower than the content imposed by European regulations and 10 times lower than the content required by the European Ecolabel.


(1)VOC content (expressed in g/l of paint) is the quantity of volatile organic compounds found in the formulation of the paint.

(2)VOC emissions (expressed in µg/m³ of air) is the quantity of volatile organic compounds emitted into the air indoors, once the paint has been applied and is dry.
