Paints and Coatings
Paints and coatings provide an aesthetically appealing atmosphere for a commercial setting. Paints and coatings should contain low or no VOCs to maintain high indoor air quality (IAQ).
When applying paints or coatings, use products that meet the VOC and chemical component limits of Green Seal's Standard GS-11 requirements. http://www.greenseal.org/certification/standards/paints_and_coatings.pdf
Review all product cut sheets prior to approval and application.
