In 2007 new regulations were introduced in the European Union regarding VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) levels in coating materials.

We feel that this is an important ecological step in the protection of our working and living environment.

WOCA Low VOC oils have the following features:

  • Positive influence on the working area and living environment. Improvement of product characteristics and application methods. No effect on indoor air quality.
  • WOCA products are certified by independent laboratories, the German Institute for Biological Building Materials, and are in accordance with DIN-Norm 53-160. WOCA Denmark products meet or exceed the most stringent U.S. standards for volatile organic compounds.
