The report gives results of a study in which wood furniture manufacturing facilities were identified that had converted at least one of their primary coating steps to low-volatile organic compound (VCC)/hazardous Air pollutant (HAP) wood furniture coatings: high-solids, waterborne, ultraviolet (UV)-curable, or powder coatings. Twenty-five case studies were developed, based on visits to the facilities and discussions with plant personnel. The case studies identify: product manufactured, types of low-VCC/HAPP coatings implemented, equipment and process changes required, problems encountered during conversions, advantages/disadvantages of the low-VOC/HAP coatings, customer feedback, costs associated with conversion, and emissions and waste reductions. The report provides general information about the wood furniture manufacturing industry's typical emissions and applicable regulations. It discusses each coating technology individually and summarizes facilities' experiences with the low-VOC/HAP coatings studied.
