Q.Colorant. “Colorant” means a concentrated pigment dispersion in water, solvent, and/or binder that is added to an architectural coating after packaging in sale units to produce the desired color.
R.Concrete curing compound. “Concrete curing compound” means a coating labeled and formulated for application to freshly poured concrete to retard the evaporation of water.
Concrete surface retarders. “Concrete surface retarders” means a mixture of retarding ingredients such as extender pigments, primary pigments, resin, and solvent that interact chemically with the cement to prevent hardening on the surface where the retarder is applied, allowing the retarded mix or cement and sand at the surface to be washed away to create an exposed aggregate finish.
Conversion varnish. “Conversion varnish” means a clear acid curing coating with an alkyd or other resin blended with amino resins and supplied as a single component or two-compound product. Conversion varnishes produce a hard, durable, clear finish designed for professional application to wood flooring. This film formation is the result of an acid-catalyzed condensation reaction, affecting a transetherification at the reactive ethers of the amino resins.
Dry fog coating. “Dry fog coating” means a coating labeled and formulated only for spray application such that overspray droplets dry before subsequent contact with incidental surfaces in the vicinity of the surface coating activity.
Exempt compound. “Exempt compound” means a compound as defined in Chapter 100 of the Department’s Regulations, as having negligible photochemical reactivity.
Faux finishing coating. “Faux finishing coating” means a coating labeled and formulated as a stain or a glaze to create artistic effects including, but not limited to, dirt, old age, smoke damage, and simulated marble and wood grain.
Fire-resistive coating. “Fire-resistive coating” means an opaque coating labeled and formulated to protect the structural integrity by increasing the fire endurance of interior or exterior steel and other structural materials, that has been fire tested and rated by a testing agency and approved by building code officials for use in bringing assemblies of structural materials into compliance with federal, state, and local building code requirements. The fire-resistive coating and the testing agency must be approved by building code officials. The fire-resistive coating shall be tested in accordance with ASTM Designation E 119-98, incorporated by reference in section 6(E)(2).
Fire-retardant coating. “Fire-retardant coating” means a coating labeled and formulated to retard ignition and flame spread, that has been tested and rated by a testing agency approved by building code officials for use in bringing building and construction materials into compliance with federal, state, and local building code requirements. The fire-retardant coating and the testing agency must be approved by building code officials. The fire-retardant coating shall be tested in accordance with ASTM Designation E 84-99, incorporated by reference in section 6(E)(1).
