Architectural Coatings Program - VOC Limits
This page last reviewed August 16, 2011
This page includes a table of VOC Limits for Architectural Coating categories in California Air Districts in both Adobe Acrobat format (pdf) and Microsoft Excel format (Excel), as well as a "VOC Calculator."
There is sometimes confusion over the terms "VOC regulatory" and "VOC actual" as used by ARB. "VOC regulatory" is the same as the term "VOC coating" used in many local air district rules, which is equivalent to the term "VOC, less water and exempts." "VOC actual" is the same as the term "VOC material" used in district rules, which is equivalent to saying "VOC, including water and exempts." To help calculate "VOC regulatory" and "VOC actual", we have provided a VOC Calculator.
