Many companies are reviewing their surface coating operations as part of their overall environmental improvement program to help them reduce the amount of hazardous waste generated and to save on hazardous waste disposal costs. Environmental improvement programs also help generate more business by meeting your customer’s corporate or individual environmental goals.
Coatings protect manufactured parts from corrosion and help improve overall appearance but frequently contain toxic Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs). Use the following resources to learn strategies to help you:
- Reduce Overspray
- Optimize Transfer Efficiency
- Explore Using Non-HAP, Low-VOC Solvents and Coatings
- Limit Solvent Use
- National Paint and Coatings Association
