The paper discusses results of a July 1991 workshop, cosponsored by EPA and RTI, to explore the concept of surface-coating-free materials (SCFMs) and to discuss their use as a means of reducing volatile organic compound (VOC) and air toxic emissions from surface coating operations. Technical papers were presented by representatives of industries that currently use or are developing SCFMs. Paper topics included architectural products, uncoated metals, plastic materials and films, high-temperature materials, and regulatory perspectives. Small group discussions followed which focused on identifying and developing research concepts that could expand the use of SCFMs. (NOTE: Surface coating operations are a large potential source of VOC emissions. Emissions occur during initial coating, as well as each time a surface is stripped and recoated.
