(7)

the actual VOC content and VOC content limit in grams per liter. If thinning is recommended, list the actual VOC content and VOC content limit after recommended thinning. If containers of one liter or less have a different VOC content than containers greater than one liter, list separately;

(8)

the names and CAS number of the VOC constituents in the product; and

(9)

the names and CAS number of any exempt compounds in the product.

6.Compliance provisions and test methods

A.Calculation of VOC content. For the purpose of determining compliance with section 4(C), the VOC content of a coating shall be determined by using the procedures described in sections 6(A)(1) and 6(A)(2), as appropriate. The VOC content of a tint base shall be determined without colorant that is added after the tint base is manufactured.

(1)

With the exception of low solids coatings, determine the VOC content in grams of VOC per liter of coating thinned to the manufacturer’s maximum recommendation, excluding the volume of any water and exempt compounds. Determine the VOC content using the following equation:

VOC Content =

Where:

VOC Content= grams of VOC per liter of coating

Ws= weight of volatiles, in grams

Ww= weight of water, in grams

Wec= weight of exempt compounds, in grams

Vm= volume of coating, in liters

Vw= volume of water, in liters

Vec= volume of exempt compounds, in liters

(2)

For low solids coatings, determine the VOC content in units of grams of VOC per liter of coating thinned to the manufacturer’s maximum recommendation, including the volume of any water and exempt compounds. Determine the VOC content using the following equation:

VOC Content (ls) =
