Interior paint is no longer considered ‘flammable’ as EPA says it can be repaired


The EPA says interior paint can be safely removed, and that the chemical compounds in the paint can actually help reduce the risk of the paint catching fire.EPA scientists found that if the chemicals were properly handled and used correctly, they can be used to prevent the buildup of gas bubbles in a car’s interior paint.EPA is now reviewing the agency’s safety guidelines for the paint.

The agency said that, in the event of an emergency, a person should “take immediate and appropriate measures to protect themselves and others” from exposure to the gas bubbles.
