Specifying Interior Coatings for Occupants' Health

By reviewing interior coatings' low VOC standards, this program will help designers accurately specify products that meet desired indoor air quality requirements.

Attendees of this program will have a greater understanding of the VOC limit standard in the US and be able to evaluate low-VOC claims accurately. Attendees will learn how to implement construction spec for interior low-VOC coating and explain the indoor air benefits from high porous materials.
