From Design and Durability-South Coast Air District OKs Plan for VOC Limits on Coatings Colorants

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.
