Solvent-Free Coating Case Study

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description In the fall of 2002, MA OTA published "InteliCoat Technologies Toxics Use Reduction Case Study." InteliCoat Technologies (formerly Rexam Image Products) achieved toxics use reduction by adopting solvent-free coating processes for the manufacturing of about 60 percent of their product line. This included the development and commercialization of both water borne and 100 percent solids UV-cure coating technology. Since the mid-1990's, the company has invested over $20 million on product/process development and production improvements to support this new coating technology. This investment has resulted in an 88 percent reduction of air emissions from VOCs and an annual savings of $1.25 million from the reduction of raw materials. This and other case studies are available on OTA's website at www.mass.gov/ota.
