VOC Restrictive States

What  Are “VOC’s”?

As more states enact stricter air quality regulations, the term “VOC” is becoming a greater part of our everyday vocabulary.

VOC is an acronym for Volatile Organic Compound. That’s a mouthful, but what does it mean? VOC’s are carbon based (organic) solvents that evaporate (volatilize) under normal atmospheric conditions and have the ability to photo-react when exposed to sunlight. This reaction creates low-level ozone, a major component of smog.  VOC’s are measured in grams per liter (g/L), and the Federal limit is 700 g/L.

List of VOC restrictive states:

Maricopa County (AZ) California (various air districts) Connecticut Delaware
District of Columbia Illinois Indiana Maine
Maryland Massachusetts New Hampshire New Jersey
New York Ohio Pennsylvania Rhode Island
Virginia (specific counties) Canada

Serveon Solvent-based Products that do not pass VOC restrictions include:

RS100, RS500, RS600, CS100, CN100, WL100, WL250 and WL350.  These products may be shipped in Quarts to VOC restrictive states, but not in larger containers (1-gallon bottles, 5-gallon pails, etc.).
