What is a VOC
VOC stands for volatile organic compound. VOCs are found in many chemical formulations and exhibit a high degree of volatility. Substances that are classified as volatile tend to readily enter the atmosphere when allowed to vent to the air. VOCs can be flammable and have a variety of potential health issues if improperly handled.
