Surface treatment in the wood working industry
In surface treatment in the wood and furniture industry acid-cured primer and top-coating can be substituted with a water based primer and an UV-cured top coating. This reduces the amount of coating used, reduces the solvent emission by 96 % and reduces the amount and number of classified ingredients with carcinogenic and reprotoxic effects. The alternative still contains a small percentage of an additive that may cause cancer. Further research is suggested to eliminate this.
