The document presents the findings of a study to evaluate the impact of declaring soybean and other vegetable seed oils exempt from VOC regulation on the coatings program. The physical and chemical characteristics of 10 vegetable seed oils are tabulated and their uses are discussed. Tests conducted with EPA reference Methods 24 and 24a showed no weight loss, indicating that the oils contain no VOC. However, the study discloses that VOC's are emitted during the autoxidation reaction which occurs when these oils are in contact with atmospheric oxygen.
