DEMONSTRATION OF A NO-VOC/NO-HAP WOOD KITCHEN CABINET COATING SYSTEM
Huang, E. W. DEMONSTRATION OF A NO-VOC/NO-HAP WOOD KITCHEN CABINET COATING SYSTEM. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/R-98/131 (NTIS PB99-114563), 1998.
The report gives results of the development and demonstration of a no-VOC (volatile organic compound)/no-HAP (hazardous air pollutant) wood furniture coating system at two cabinet manufacturing plants: one in Portland, OR, and the other in Redwood City, CA. Technology transfer efforts were made by presentations at conferences and workshops and publication in journals. 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. Although not under this contract, 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. Copy available at NTIS as PB99-114563.
