The paper discusses the development and demonstration of a wood furniture coating system containing no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) (making it less hazardous to use) and emitting no detectable VOCs or HAPs during curing (contributing significantly to emission reduction). The VOC contents of both the clear topcoat and the white pigmented topcoat were < 10 g/L, the detection limit of the test method (EPA Method 24). This coating's performance and properties compared favorably with those of other low-VOC waterborne coatings.
