Typically, we use approximately 4 oz. per gallon of water in mixing our
fountain solutions, and thus even with the Tower AR-1 component, that
calculates out to approximately 3% VOC content "as used" on press. On
reviewing the MSDS for Tower AR-1, there are some listed reportables:
2-Propoxyethanol (2807-30-9) and 2,2,4 Trimethyl-1, 3 Pentanediol
Monolsobutyrate (25265-77-4). The HDP product, Capital-R, has no reportables
and half the VOC content, so mixed down the "as used" on press VOC content
would be approximately 1.5%. I hope this answers your question.

The 15% VOC content you mention, is that calculated "as applied" or mass
