The report gives results of the development and demonstration of a no-VOC (volatile organic compounds)/no-HAP (hazardous air pollutant) wood furniture coating system. The performance characteristics of the new coating system are excellent in terms of adhesion, drying time, gloss, hardness, mar resistance, chemical resistance, and stain resistance. In addition to the field demonstration at a selected wood furniture manufacturing facility, a workshop was held to provide detailed information to wood furniture manufacturers, coating suppliers, corporate users, and regulatory agencies on what is required to change to a new coating system. Topics such as product performance data, application techniques, coating repair procedures, drying time, curing procedures, and spray equipment cleaning techniques were presented. In parallel with this demonstration project, surveys were conducted with the South Coast Air Quality Management District to gain an understanding of the effort required by the wood furniture industry to change over to water-based coating systems in general.
