Brownell Boat Stands, Inc. - Low-VOC Coatings. OTA 1999.

In an effort to reduce emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from its coating operations, Brownell Boat Stands, Incorporated switched from low-percent solids paint thinned with toluene to high-solids coatings that could be thinned with acetone, a non-VOC. Brownell also enlarged its manufacturing facility to allow product inventory to be stored inside, and installed an automatic dip coating machine to handle a portion of the company’s production line. Thanks to these changes, the company has been able to reduce VOC emissions by half while steadily increasing production.
