Industrial Protective Coatings

This standard specifies the product classifications, requirements, test methods, inspection rules, package marks, implementation of standard, of the permissible limits of the substances that are harmful to humans and the environment in industrial protective coatings. 

This standard applies to a variety of industrial protective coatings (Except marine coatings) used for protecting the surface of metal, concrete and plastics, etc., except putty. This standard does not apply to aerospace coatings, coatings for nuclear power purpose, or coatings for military equipment and facility.

 Printing Inks

This standard is applicable to various printing inks in the end-of-manufacturing state. This standard is neither applicable to additives and diluents used to adjust the printing performance of ink, nor to cleaning agents for printing ink or other products used for printing.

 Adhesives

This standard is applicable to the limit of volatile organic compounds content in solvent-based, water-based and bulk adhesives.

This standard is not applicable to:

—the adhesives used as intermediates or not entering the circulation field to be used as raw materials for production;

—the adhesives for testing or evaluation in any research and development, quality assurance or analysis laboratory;

—urea formaldehyde, phenol formaldehyde and melamine formaldehyde adhesives; 

—special functional surface treating agents for material bonding.

5.1.1 The content of single volatile organic compound in adhesive such as benzene series (benzene, methylbenzene and xylene), halogenated hydrocarbon (dichloromethane, 1,2-dichloroethane, 1,1,1-trichloroethane and 1,1,2-trichloroethane), toluene diisocyanate and free formaldehyde, shall meet the requirements of GB 30982 or GB 19340.

5.1.2 If the adhesive is expressly used for various purposes, the lowest limit in each requirement shall be taken.

 

Cleaning Agents

This standard specifies the product classification of cleaning agents, and the limit requirements, inspection methods and packaging marks of volatile organic compounds (VOC). This standard is applicable to cleaning agents containing volatile organic compounds produced and used in industrial production and service activities. This standard is not applicable to cleaning agents used in aerospace, nuclear industry, military industry and semiconductor (including integrated circuits) manufacturing.
