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 a process of applying a protective, decorative, or functional coating layer to a wood substrate used in the construction (either interior or exterior) of any residential, commercial or institutional building. According to the proposed regulation, the wood substrate must contain, at a minimum, fifty percent (50%) by weight wood or wood fiber. Coating materials include, but are not limited to, paints, stains, sealers, topcoats, basecoats, primers, inks, and adhesives.
