Green Seal Issues Revised Paint Standard

June 04, 2008

Source: Green Seal

Green Seal has issued the Environmental Standard for Paints and Coatings (GS-11) Second Edition.  This standard establishes environmental requirements for paints and coatings, including wall, anti-corrosive, and reflective coatings, floor paints and primers and undercoats. The standard does not include stains, clear finishes, recycled (consolidated or reprocessed) latex paint, specialty (industrial, marine or automotive) coatings, or paint sold in aerosol cans.

The online version of RPN's Responsible Purchasing Guide for Paints has been updated to include this updated paint standard.  Revisions to the Standards Comparison Chart and RPN product database are coming soon.
