1 Compliance guide for VOC Information Sheet #17 October Oleander Avenue Shelly Beach QLD 4551 E W Guide for Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Compliance VOC (Volatile Organic Compound Content) is essentially the solvent content of a coatg or adhesive product. The GBCA (Green Buildg Council of Australia) have issued guideles for VOC emissions with buildgs that may relate to the health impact on occupants, which ATFA is subsequently workg with dustry an effort to achieve. The followg pots are advised: 1. The GBCA requirements are basically that of solvent content, or more precisely Volatile Organic Compound content (VOC). 2. Toxicity and VOC are not necessarily related. Low VOC does not necessarily mean lower toxicity than a high VOC coatg or vice versa. Toxicity depends on type of solvent and the proportion of the solvent the wet product. 3. Accordgly if toxicity formation is required, the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) of the product should be referred to prior to use of any product: web references are as dicated the followg tables. 4. The VOC s listed have been calculated on the European defi nition which Australia has also adopted basically all solvents with boilg pots below 250 deg C are considered VOC s. When consultg the manufacturer MSDS be aware that a different calculation method for the VOC may have been made for example the USA method is to calculate VOC on the basis of VOC % after water has been removed from the formulation unlike Europe and Australia, the USA some very volatile solvents are considered VOC exempt if they do not cause photo chemical smog. 5. AFTA has compiled the followg as a guide only, which is believed to be correct at the time of publication. Note: To ensure this document remas current it is requested that all named manufacturers advise ATFA immediately of any change. Changes will subsequently be mataed on the web based version of the document. Anyone holdg this document should refer to consumer services for the latest version of this document.
