Toyota completes water-based car paint rollout
The rollout completion, which is part of the automaker's Third Toyota Environmental Action Plan, has reduced emissions to an average of 30g/m2. Toyota plans to go even further to reducing VOC emissions to 25g/m2 by the year 2010 by switching to the water-borne paints to the middle coat and bumper painting lines.
Both Ford and Mazda have developed new paint procedures to deal with the VOC issues as well.
