Abstract: Keeping track of the constantly evolving Architectural and Industrial Surface Coating VOC regulations in the United States is a daunting task. Forecasting how these regulations might evolve in the future is even more difficult. However, given concerns over compliance as well as how to direct future R&D efforts to lower VOC content in coatings products, both are important. The presenter will provide an overview of Architectural and Industrial Maintenance (AIM) VOC regulations at the Federal, State and local level. This presentation also will provide an overview of recent AIM VOC regulatory developments that will most likely result in yet another round of lower AIM, colorant and paint thinner VOC limits in various States and California Air Quality Management Districts.
The webinar will be approximately 30 - 45 minutes in length
