In a steel structure building, in which the steel is within the building weather proof, two applications are applied:
1- Fire Proof Paint (applied on site)
2- Solvent Based Top Coat Paint (applied on site) over the fire proof paint
Question 1: Since the fire proof paint is covered by the top coat, should it comply with SCAQMD VOC limits?
Question 2: Should the top coat for steel structure comply with GS-11 or SCAQMD Rule 1113 (VOC 600 for Solvent Based IM)?
Thank you,
