Abstract: Angus's multifunctional additive AMP has been granted VOC-exempt status by the Department of the Environment in Canada.

Angus Chemical Company announced that AMP, the company's multifunctional additive used in paint formulations, metalworking fluids and personal care products, is not classified as a volatile organic compound by Environment Canada. An order has been set in place to remove AMP from the list of toxic substances.

“As global VOC regulations continue to proliferate, AMP has become an even more powerful tool for environmentally conscious customers to formulate more sustainable products,” said Mark Henning, president and chief executive officer of Angus Chemical Company. “AMP’s Canada VOC exemption marks a huge win not only for our customers in Canada, who now have broader formulating flexibility, but also for consumers who will benefit from the desirable features AMP imparts in low- and zero-VOC paints, metalworking fluids and personal care products.”
