Sto Corp., a world leader in cladding, coating, and restoration systems, has announced that the majority of its coatings line of building products has been adjusted to meet the new low-VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) regulations that went into effect in southern California on July 1.

“While our coatings have always met EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) regulations, the VOC level will now meet the most stringent requirement in the United States, the SCAQMD (South Coast Air Quality Management District) Rule 1113,” said Jeff Turner, R&D project manager at Sto Corp.

“The adjustments to these coatings products also fit with Sto Corp.’s upcoming implementation of our ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. By lowering the VOC in our products to meet the strictest standards in the country, we continue our commitment to being an environmentally conscientious company,” Turner said.
