Abstract:
The EPA is proposing national standards to reduce emissions of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) from the surface coating of wood building products. These HAP are known, or suspected, to cause cancer or other serious health and environmental effects. Wood building products surface coating is the process of applying a protective, decorative, or functional coating layer to a wood substrate used in the construction (either interior or exterior) of residential, commercial or institutional buildings. Wood substrate is defined in the proposed rule to contain, at a minimum, 50 percent by weight wood or wood fiber. Coating materials include, but are not limited to, paints, stains, sealers, topcoats, basecoats, primers, inks, and adhesives. This file is a fact sheet summarizing the proposed rule.
