VOC in Aerosol Paint

Q. Is there any VOC regulations on aerosol paint and coatings? If so, what is the lbs/ga - water number?

A. The only regulations for aerosol paints of which I'm aware, are in the Bay Area regulations in California Refer to Regulation 8, Rule 49 Section 301. The VOC limits are given as a PERCENT by WEIGHT of the PRODUCT. For instance, the VOC for flat paint products is 60%.

The regulation can be downloaded in an Acrobat Reader (pdf) file format.

Hope this helps.
