    A few days ago, the Shenzhen Municipal Market Supervision Administration issued an announcement, disclosing the results of the quality supervision and random inspection of coating products sold in small stores in Shenzhen in 2017.
    Of the 520 batches of samples that were randomly checked, 21 batches of samples were unqualified.
    Among them, Tikkurila (China) Coating Co.
    , Ltd.
    was blacklisted because of the unqualified samples of two samples.

    According to the announcement, the two products of Tikkurila that were found to be unqualified were Fenlin Almighty Interior Wall Paint, and the production unit was Tikkurila (China) Coating Co.
    , Ltd.
    The inspected units were Tikkurila (Shenzhen) Coating Co.
    , Ltd.
    and Shenzhen Haoming Coatings Co.
    , Ltd.
    , Futian District, Shenzhen.
    All unqualified items were total volatile organic compounds.

    It is reported that volatile organic compounds will pollute the environment, cause photochemical pollution and fine particulate matter (PM2.
    5) pollution, and increase the load of indoor organic pollutants.
    In severe cases, it will cause headaches, sore throat and other symptoms, and harm the human body.

           The announcement also gave an explanation for the reasons for the non-conformities of the above two products.
    It is reported that volatile organic compounds refer to any organic compound with an initial boiling point lower than 250°C under a standard pressure of 101.
    From the sample categories of the unqualified products in this spot check, most of the unqualified products are solvent-based products.
    The unqualified volatile organic compound is mainly because some coatings have not adjusted the production process and used excessive organic solvents in order to meet the relevant performance requirements.

           The Shenzhen Municipal Administration of Market Supervision reminds consumers that consumers should pay attention to whether the product is accompanied by Chinese instructions for use (ie, product identification).
    Consumers should try not to buy products without instructions for use or with incomplete instructions for use.
