GLRPPR Sector Resource: Pollution Prevention in Metal Painting and Coating Operations: A Manual for Technical Assistance Providers

Title:
Pollution Prevention in Metal Painting and Coating Operations: A Manual for Technical Assistance Providers

Abstract:
This manual specifically targets P2 methods for reducing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted during the coating of metal substrates. It stresses the use of low-VOC paints and coatings (i.e., high-solids, waterborne and powder coatings that contain lower solvent concentrations than conventional paints) as well as techniques and technologies that can increase transfer efficiency. Methods for reducing the amount of solvents used during other stages of the coatings process, particularly surface preparation and equipment cleaning, are also featured. (Length: Hardcopy is 121 pages + appendices)
