Understanding Prop 65

Prop 65 affects nearly every company that uses styrene. ACMA recommends that all companies understand this rule and make some business decisions about how to proceed. Since companies manufacturing composite products sold or used in California could be subject to enforcement action unless certain warnings are provided in compliance with the Prop 65 regulations administered by Cal-EPA, ACMA has created a few documents for its members to understand the implications of this regulation.

Companies manufacturing composite products sold or used in California could be subject to enforcement action unless certain warnings are provided in compliance with the Prop 65 regulations administered by Cal-EPA. Even companies not located in California, or unaware that their products are used in the state, could be sued in state courts for failing to provide warnings. 

This document will provide composite manufacturers with an understanding of Prop 65 and provide suggestions on how to mitigate the risk of Prop 65 enforcement.

The amount of residual styrene contained in a composite product declines quickly in the months following its manufacture. Composites manufacturers deciding not to provide warnings to consumers in California may be able to respond effectively to Prop 65 enforcement action, should it occur, by using measurements of residual styrene to estimate exposures associated with use of products. 

ACMA conducted the study described in this report to determine the amount of time following manufacture at which the content of residual styrene in composite products will be substantially reduced.
