CAMARILLO, CA – Elastomeric roof and wall coatings provider National Coatings Corp. (NCC) announced that 16 of its roof coating products meet stringent standards related to air quality and low-VOC requirements set by the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD).
The SCAQMD is the air pollution agency responsible for regulating air pollution in the South Coast Air Basin in southern California. The agency creates, adopts, and implements the Air Quality Management Plan, a regional blueprint for achieving air quality standards and healthful air, to bring the area into compliance with the clean air standards established by national and state governmental legislation.
Rule 1113 of the SCAQMD Rule Book limits the VOC convent of architectural coatings as they constitute the majority of area source emissions in the South Coast Air Basin. “Low-VOC” refers to coatings that meet the regulatory limits and “Super-Compliant” refers to coatings that are well below the regulatory limits – they meet the stringent VOC standard of <10 g/L. While National Coatings offers several low-VOC coatings, the company is most excited to announce its commitment to product stewardship and continued industry leadership by revealing it has 16 “Super-Compliant” coatings with VOC levels below 10 grams per liter.
“We have worked very hard over the years to limit the VOC levels in our coatings to not only comply with local standards but to greatly exceed the requirements,” said Shawn Collins, President of National Coatings. “Our 16 ‘Super-Compliant’ coatings include base and top roof coatings, as well as our wall coating. This is a great achievement for us, and we are proud to offer these products to our customers.”
