For those of you who read our last blog about VOC’s and why they matter, (if you haven’t, you can read it here) you can breathe a sigh of relief to know that we have established a long-term solution to keeping the entire line of Faux Effects International products in distribution and available to you—especially here in Southern California.
If you’re wondering how it affects you other than actively contributing to a healthier place for us to live,SCAQMD (South Coast Air Quality Management District) is continually updating and amending the regulations in which we all must abide by. Paving the way for a healthier future, these amendments can however hinder our availability to many materials in the industry including the Faux Effects products we have grown to love over the years. We recently reported that certain materials would not be available within the SCAQMD region. We are back with good news: we have solutions to offer!
Working closely with Faux Effects International and SCAQMD, Faux Masters is happy to report that any materials outside of the new VOC limits will be available in quart sizes instead of gallons to comply with the federal and local mandated levels for VOC’s. Although not always the most convenient solution, it does bring the necessary materials back to the shelf! We understand that many of the most coveted techniques in the industry are only accomplished via these unique products thus resulting in the small container exemption. As always, we strongly encourage you to order your products as far in advance as feasibly possible. This allows us to ensure stock levels and get your products to you in a timelier manner.
Rest assured, Faux Effects International is still hard at work re-formulating these materials to meet new guidelines while still performing consistently well; although easier said than done! Remaining committed to offering the most environmentally friendly materials possible, Faux Effects has worked with regional officials for many years now to stay ahead of the curve and this is no different. Please have patience while new technologies and a relentless effort continue to improve our industries eco-responsibility.
If you have questions about the products, never hesitate to email or call us toll free 888-977-FAUX. We are always here to help and relieve any concerns you might have over these on-going changes. With this recent victory, we are excited to continue offering you the best faux finishing products out there along with the best customer service and support. So paint on with reckless abandon! The sky is the limit…one glorious quart at a time.
