Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Emissions -- Company Statement

June 1, 1987

The EPA has established certain VOC requirements as has CARB (California Air Emissions Board) and other agencies concerned with this matter. The California groups are by far the most rigid and restrictive.

The purpose of this TECHNICAL BULLETIN is to advise and reassure all those involved in the sales, marketing, and application of RUST DESTROYER®; that the product is now, and has always been, in full compliance with all EPA, CARB, and all other agency VOC requirements. This includes those of the past and those of all announced dates in the future.

AS AN EXAMPLE: Under the rules and regulations of the South Coast Air Quality Management District, published August, 1986, the solvent content allowed for general and industrial maintenance primers, as shown on P1113-1 ranges from 350420 grams per liter. RUST DESTROYER® contains only 280 grams of solvent per liter.

In the SAME publication under Rule 1113, paragraph (h), there is a container size restriction for products containing photo chemically reactive solvent. RUST DESTROYER® does not contain any of this type of solvent and is therefore not subject to the requirement.

RUST DESTROYER® packaged in the aerosol container is exempt from these regulations under the provisions outlined in Section (c)(1) relating to small packages. Other reasons for exemption are outlined in Section (c)(2). For additional information and continuing update, please feel free to contact our TECHNICAL DEPARTMENT.

RE: Specialty Coatings Regulations

Dear Mr. Heiss:

Yesterday you called me in response to NPCA's recent all member bulletin regarding non-flat architectural coatings in California. Your concern was that one of your principal products, RUST DESTROYER® (TM), has more than 250 g/l VOC in its formula.

You explained that the product is used to coat the corrosion which can ruin surfaces and that it essentially interacts with the rust to add a protective layer to the surface. That and the areas for which it is used indicate that you are manufacturing an industrial maintenance product for which the VOC content level will be 420 g/l after September 1 unless CARB defers the latest deadline. The figure you gave me for RUST DESTROYER® (TM) was considerably below 420 g/l, so you should be able to market your product in California until such time as CARB or EPA attempts to impose a lower limit. Thus, this particular aspect of your business is not affected at this time.

You were wise to make sure of that, and I hope you will continue to remain in contact with NPCA as we assess future developments. Thanks for calling NPCA.
