What is National Rule

National Rule:

Certain automotive refinishing coatings products give off Volitile Organic Compounds known as VOCs, which are produced at a measurable rate. These automotive refinishing products are regulated on a National scale by the EPA to control air quality and the regulation term has been coined "National Rule".

More information from the EPA about National Rule can be found here.

What is Low VOC

Low VOC:

Some States have decided to adopt "VOC standards more stringent than the National Rule to assist in achieving attainment with the NAAQS for ozone" to retian tighter air quality control standards than what the National Rule regulations provide. These tighter air quality controls are termed "Low VOC".

More information from the EPA about Low VOC can be found here.
