VOC Concentration Limits for Automotive Refinishing Products
|Item||Column 1||Column 2|
|Product Category and Description||VOC Concentration Limit (g/L)|
A coating formulated to be applied for corrosion resistance, adhesion of subsequent coatings or to fill in surface imperfections. Adhesion promoters are not included in this category.
A coating formulated to be applied before the application of another coating for the purpose of colour uniformity or to prevent a subsequent coating from penetrating underlying coatings.
Pre-Treatment Wash Primer
A coating that contains a minimum of 0.5% acid by weight and not more than 16% solids by weight that is formulated to be applied directly to bare metal surfaces to provide corrosion resistance and to facilitate adhesion of subsequent coatings.
A coating formulated to be applied to uncoated plastic surfaces to facilitate adhesion of subsequent coatings
A pigmented coating formulated to be applied to a primer or an adhesion promoter that requires a subsequent clear coating. This category includes metallic or iridescent colour coatings.
Uniform Finish Coating
A coating formulated to be applied to an area of repair for the purpose of blending it to match the finish of the rest of the surface.
Truck Bed Liner Coating
A coating that protects a truck bed from surface abrasion. Colour coatings, multicolour coatings and single-stage coatings are excluded.
Temporary Protective Coating
A coating that temporarily protects certain areas from overspray or mechanical damage.
A coating formulated to be applied to the wheel wells, the inside of door panels or fenders, the underside of a trunk or hood or the underside of a motor vehicle.
A pigmented coating formulated to be applied without a subsequent clear coat. Single-stage coatings include single-stage metallic or iridescent colour coatings.
A coating that exhibits more than one colour in the dried coat after a single application, hides surface defects and is formulated to be applied over a primer or adhesion promoter. This category includes metallic or iridescent multicolour coatings.
A coating that contains no pigments and is formulated to be applied over any other coating.
All other coatings not described in this schedule.
