Parex USA's Colorants Meets SCAQMD Regulations in California

Published March 28, 2014
Parex USA, Inc., the parent company of one of the leading building material brands; Parex, Teifs, LaHabra, El Rey, and Merkrete, introduced a new colorant technology that is compliant with the South Coast Air Quality Management District's (SCAQMD) new ruling for VOC limits of tinted exterior coatings and finishes.

For some years, the SCAQMD has been focusing on regulations to reduce the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) content in a variety of construction material sectors. A new ruling in California, Rule 1113, now limits the VOC of tinted exterior coatings and finishes to 50 g/l. By introducing the Parex USA NO VOC Colorants in California, Parex USA can continue offering high-quality, reliable coatings and finishes that will meet the new VOC regulations.

The new Parex USA NO VOC Colorant line will have 11 environmentally-friendly colors that will provide optimal performance and greater color consistency. The NO VOC Colorants are already being implemented into all Parex USA acrylic and elastomeric base products, as well as color bottles, at the company's California plants - Riverside, CA and French Camp, CA.

"Parex USA is committed to providing high-quality colorants, which meet environmental regulations in California and across the U.S.," said Robert Dickson, Director of Technical Services for Parex USA. "Transitioning to non-VOC colorants in California positions the company at the forefront of environmental innovation in the architectural coatings & finishes industry."

Notable features Parex USA's NO VOC Colorants include:
Environmentally friendly colorants with zero VOC (<1 g/l)
Developed to work with all Parex USA base materials including acrylic and elastomeric products
Compliant with California's new VOC regulations per SCAQMD Rule 1113
Convenient packaging
Ability to continue offering limitless color options
Optimum performance and stability.
