Here  in Europe chemicals regulation is called REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of CHemicals).

Powder coatings are environmentally friendly. They don’t contain any solvents, and only release very negligible amounts of VOC’s, if any, within the atmosphere. This means that coatings have need of purchasing and maintaining expensive equipment for pollution control.

REACH is a comprehensive legislation and it will have an impact on Primatek Coatings as a chemical company.
