VOC Compliant Products

Q. What does V.O.C. Compliant mean, as related to cleaners/strippers?

A. "VOC Compliant" means that the cleaners and strippers must meet the local, state or federal regulations for these products. If your company is subject to a local, state or federal rule that regulates these compounds, you are obligated to purchase products that meet those regulatory limits. The limits can vary depending on the state in which the regulation is written. If you are not subject to any regulation that covers cleaners or strippers then you are free to use any product.
