VOCs

VOCs are carbon based molecules that create ground level ozone (tropospheric ozone) when exposed to sunlight

VOCs are heavily used in coatings because they allow a coating that has been spread out to dry quickly

There are no VOC’s in a majority of our coatings

Here is a list of the current VOCs based on EPA and US Government
