Environmentally Safe Cleaning of Paint Brushes & Rollers
Here at AsNu we care about the environment and want to reduce the environmental impact caused by commercial painting and residential house painting. For this reason, we use an environmentally safe paint brush and roller cleaning system.
Paint should never be poured down the drain. Therefore, we use the ‘Dulux Envirosolutions system for washing out painting equipment such as tins, paint brushes and rollers.
Dulux Envirowash Turns Paint Wash into Clean Water and Solid Waste That is Safe for Landfill
The Dulux Envirosolutions range includes – Envirowash, Clean and Go, Brush Cleaner Unit, Brush Watch, Waste Hardener. These products provide an environmentally responsible and safe way to wash out painting tools, tins, paint brushes and rollers. This revolutionary wash system converts waterborne paint washings into clear water and solid waste, thus allowing for easier and safer disposal.
How the safe painting clean-up process works
The units are made up of two parts, the sink and a separate filtration tank. The units work by separating paint washings into clear water and solid paint. Firstly, the spray gun is used to wash rollers, brushes, paint trays etc used during painting.
Once the unit is full chemicals are used to separate the solid matter and water from the paint washings. This takes about 1- 6 hours. After treatment clear water remains at the top of the tank while the paint sludge gathers at the bottom. Clear water can be recycled into other trade related applications or released onto flat grassy areas and gardens. The remaining paint sludge is filtered, for removal and drying. Once residue is dry, it is ready to be disposed of as non-hazardous solid waste.
