Healthier Living Starts At Home

For 35 years, we’ve helped our customers create healthier living environments with our premium quality, eco-friendly range of products. We’re happy to let you know what’s in every can so you can feel good about bringing ECOS into your home or workspace.

Better Primers, by Design

Our water-based, eco-friendly primers feature a unique formula created without the harsh chemicals found in conventional primers that often cause headaches, nausea, and worse. Using eco-friendly, sustainable ingredients and a proprietary mixing process, our primers are applied just like any conventional primer, using a brush, roller, or sprayer.

Using Primers

Primers are recommended in many situations - they can help you prepare a bare or rough surface or help to modify a color. A good primer is the start of a great finish. Generally you can use a white primer, but if you’re painting a room in a darker color we recommend using a tinted primer instead.
