         Q & A


 
  What does VOC compliant mean?

V.O.C.’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) contribute to the formation of ozone. This is unhealthy to breath and that is why they are regulated. 

The VOC regulations apply to products used in California.  The California Air Resources Board determines the maximum amount of organic solvents that are allowed in a category or group of products. 
( i.e. glass cleaners may not exceed 6%, general-purpose cleaners 10%) This legislation is devised to cut down on the amount of organic chemicals that are released into the air. Once in the air, the solvents react with sunlight and oxygen and produce ozone.

California’s Proposition 65, The Safe Drinking Water & Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was a voter initiative passed to address citizens' concerns about exposure to substances, which cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. The law prohibits businesses from discharging such chemicals into sources of drinking water and requires that warnings be given to individuals exposed to them.

The state's Scientific Advisory Board determines which chemicals are “known to the State of California” to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity, and periodically publishes updated lists in the California Regulatory Notice Register.

Auto Magic® is currently producing and researching new VOC Compliant reconditioning products. New products that are VOC compliant will have a VOC Compliant icon on the back label.
