The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) last week enacted the nation’s first VOC regulation on colorants for architectural and industrial maintenance coatings.
In approving a number of amendments to the district’s Rule 1113 on architectural and industrial maintenance coatings, the district also enacted lower VOC content limits on a number of specialty coatings. Also approved was the elimination of the rule’s VOC “averaging” provision, which gives coatings manufacturing companies a flexibility option in meeting the rule’s stringent VOC-content provisions. The averaging provision will be eliminated on Jan. 1, 2015.
