Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) Exempt Options

Organic compounds participate in atmospheric photochemical reactions and react with nitrogen oxides to form photochemical smog, posing harmful environmental impacts in addition to other short & long term adverse health benefits.

VOC-exempt solvents have been tested and approved by the US EPA as they do not have atmospheric photochemical reactivity. Aculon offers VOC-exempt solvents for many of our application platforms.
