Another option to reduce VOCs is to switch from liquid to powder coatings, which are VOC- and HAP-free. Because they don’t emit vapors (or strong smells), powder coating shops don’t require as much ventilation, which can lower cold-climate heating costs.

Powder matured as a technology in the 1990s and celebrated its 50th birthday a few years ago.

Despite slightly better performance, however, demand and output have been softer than desired for much of this year, with the year-over-year pace of manufacturing production declining from 4.3 percent in January to 1.9 percent in October. This easing has reflected headwinds from a strong dollar, weaknesses abroad and lower commodity prices, among other challenges. At the same time, total industrial production fell for the second straight month on weaker activity in mining and utilities.
