VOC stands for Volatile Organic Compounds. VOCs are the part of the paint which release pollutants in the air and which account for new paint’s noxious smell. Low VOC paints are formulated differently; basically, they don’t stink. VOCs are measured in pounds per gallon or grams per liter. A Green Seal is given to paint if its VOC content is less than 50 g/l for interior flat paint or 150 g/l for non-flat paint.
