ACA Webinar: Exempt Compound Update

August 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This webinar will address exempt volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are used in coatings. U.S. EPA has exempted many VOCs it has determined have negligible photochemical reactivity and therefore do not contribute to the formation of ground-level ozone. The benefit of exempt compounds is that they do not have to be counted towards the VOC content of a coatings product. This webinar will provide a status update on exempt VOCs used in coatings, and address possible alternatives.
