Sansin Enviro Wood Stains Meet Newly Revised California Proposition 65 Regulations

Published on 2010-11-16. Author : SpecialChem

STRATHROY, ONTARIO, Canada -- The Sansin Corporation announced that it complies with the recently updated and stringent California Proposition 65 regulations, which aim to protect the State's drinking water by limiting chemicals in products that are known to cause cancer.

"Sansin is dedicated to introducing wood finishes and protection that push the envelope on beauty, performance and clarity, while leading the industry in developing formulas with the lowest concentrations of VOC levels and toxicity," said Sjoerd Bos, Vice President of the Sansin Corporation. "Our Research and Development Center works to test and develop wood stains and finishes that offer the least amount of toxicity possible, and our ability to continually meet or exceed these regulations is testament to that effort and our company's investment."

All of Sansin wood stains and finishes conform to requirements to attain LEED credits for indoor environmental quality (credit 4.1 and 4.2).

Sansin's wood stains and finishes and protection products also meet strict CARB VOC regulations, considered the nation's strictest air quality regulations issued by the Southern California Air Quality Management District for architectural coatings (SCAQMD 1113).

Sansin's interior and exterior wood stains and finishes currently meet and exceed VOC concentration limits as set forth by Environment Canada in its Discussion Paper, Renewal of the Federal Agenda on the Reduction of Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Emissions from Consumer and Commercial Products, issued in April 2010.
