The report gives results of the development and demonstration of a no-VOC (volatile organic compound)/no-HAP (hazardous air pollutant) wood furnature coating system at two cabinet manufacturing plants: one in Portlant, OR, and the other in Redwood City, CA. Seven wood kitchen cabinet manufacturers in California's South Coast Basin were surveyed to gain a more in depth understanding of problems faced when switching from solvent- to water-based coatings. The report also discusses the adaptability of the coating to metal substrates on chassis components, demonstrated at two large recreational vehicle manufacturers. It also discusses a preliminary analysis of the potential for incorporating epoxidized vegetable oils into new resins.
