VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids. These gases can have adverse health effects. They also combine with other elements in the presence of sunlight to form smog, a major air pollutant. The government now restricts the amount of VOC’s that can be included in certain products.
- Waterbased coatings typically have half as much VOC content as the traditional Oil Modified Urethane (OMU)
- Basic Coatings waterbased finishes produce less odor than fragrant OMU’s
- Green: Several of Basic Coatings® waterbased finishes meet the strictest of government regulations and LEED requirements.
