HOW IT’S MADE
The first and most important step in our process for manufacturing recycled paint is the initial sorting. Every can and pail that we receive is opened and inspected to determine if the paint is usable. Good quality, reusable paints are hand sorted by color for processing into recycled content paint.
Reusable paints of the same color are pumped into a tank and mixed with a high-speed mixer. The paint is tested for viscosity, color, sheen, coverage, pH and other characteristics. The paint is then adjusted with additives as necessary to meet our strict specifications. Finally, the paint is filtered and packaged for sale.
Amazon Select Paint meets the same specifications as high quality virgin paint sold by the nation’s leading manufacturers. Our paint is periodically tested by the paint industry’s premier independent organization. Amazon Select is certified as a quality, recycled content, environmentally preferable product.
Our paint is unconditionally guaranteed. We will refund the purchase price of any paints returned to us within one year of shipment, no questions asked.
Non-reusable paints are manufactured into other products, including Processed Latex Pigment (PLP). PLP is an alternative raw material used in the manufacture of cement, and is made using Amazon’s patented processes.
