VOC (Volatile organic compounds) regulations are changing rapidly across the the nation. Not all of the stains and sealers that we sell are compliant for all states. As it stands 16 states have adopted the more stringent 250 regulation:

These states include: California, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Northern VA, Pennsylvania, Parts of Arizona, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana.

In addition certain counties in California have adopted 100 VOC regulations: LA County, Riverside County, Orange County, San Bernardino County.

 

See VOC Compliant Wood and Deck Stains for a list of stains that can be sold to you if you reside in one of theses states.

    Hi

    I manufacture clay pavers. Product is semi-vitreous (fired at 1950 degress) and has texture. I am looking for a sealer that I can recommend to the trade/ retail for exterior use (UV protection). I am attaching photo to show comparison of penetrating vs enhancer app. The Bona Mega is not rated for exterior application…would like that look, for exterior, if possible. Low sheen is preferred.

      Clay pavers will not seal evenly with an exterior concrete sealer due to the uneven porosity of the clay bricks. Sealers like this are made for concrete pavers.

    What actually does VOC mean? My neighbor used a “Low VOC”.

    I applied Super Seal 25 to my pavers. The seal is effective but dull. Can I apply something "wet looking" over this?

      The SS25 is a wet look sealer. If it is not giving you a wet look then there may be something underneath the sealer that is discoloring it. Feel free to post a picture.

    Does SuperSeal30 allowed to be use in California? Currently, I do not reside in the 100 VOC regulated counties. Thank you.
