Restricted VOC Products

The Government of Canada and the State of California have restricted the sale of certain products to consumers due to the high Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) levels.

These products are as follows but not limited to:

  • Fiebing’s Leather Dye

  • Fiebing’s Pro Dye

  • Fiebing’s Deglazer

  • Fiebing’s Dye Reducer

  • Fiebing’s Saddle Lac

These regulations do not apply to products designed to be used solely in manufacturing or processing.

Manufacturing or processing are defined as activities whereby any goods, products, commodities or wares:

a. are made, fabricated, processed or refined out of any raw material or other substance or combination thereof,
b. are converted or rebuilt, but not repaired, or
c. are made by causing any raw material or other substance to undergo a significant chemical, biochemical or physical change including change that preserves or improves the keeping qualities of that raw material or other substance but excluding change by growth or decay.

Basically what this means is that if you are manufacturing at any level products for resale you may be eligible to purchase under the exemption. Under no circumstances are the products to be purchased for resale.
