                    solvent-borne inks, or related surface

                    coatings shall be calculated using EPA

                    Reference Method 24 (Determination of Volatile

                    Matter Content, Water Content, Density Volume

                    Solids, and Weight Solids of Surface Coatings,

                    Code of Federal Regulations Title 40, Part 60,

                    Appendix A). 



          302.2     The test method shall be documented. The VOC

                    content of any material applicable under this

                    rule may be supplied by a Material Safety Data 

                    Sheet (MSDS) or data sheet provided the test

                    method described above is used and specified

                    on the MSDS or data sheet.

          302.3     VOC content and density of solvent-borne

                    (solvent reducible) printing inks or related
