Building materials supplier Parex USA Inc. has introduced new colorant technology that meets Southern California's newly updated VOC limits on tinted exterior coatings and finishes.

The new Parex USA NO VOC Colorant line will have 11 environmentally friendly colors that "will provide optimal performance and greater color consistency," according to Parex USA, parent company of Parex, Teifs, LaHabra, El Rey, and Merkrete.

Parex USA is implementing the zero-VOC colorants into all of its acrylica and elastomeric base products in California.

The company says the colorants "are already being implemented into all Parex USA acrylic and elastomeric base products, as well as color bottles" at the company's plants in California.

The colorants are compliant with the South Coast Air Quality Management District’s (SCAQMD) latest version of Rule 1113, which limits the VOC of tinted exterior architectural coatings and finishes to 50 g/l, effective Jan. 1, 2014.

Parex USA says its coatings and finishes made with the new zero-VOC colorants meet the newest regulations.

“Parex USA is committed to providing high-quality colorants, which meet environmental regulations in California and across the U.S.,” said Robert Dickson, Director of Technical Services.

California-based Parex USA is a subsidiary of the ParexGroup, a division of Materis, S.A., a French corporation. The ParexGroup is a global supplier of specialty chemicals and ready-to-use mortars for the construction industry.
