What Are Organic Coatings? Organic coatings are materials that are applied to protect or beautify a surface. When applied, the solvents in organic coatings can evaporate into the atmosphere and contribute to volatile organic compound and airborne toxic emissions.
What Are Inorganic Coatings? Inorganic coatings are generally metallic materials that can provide corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and functional capabilities, such as thermal insulation. Inorganic coatings can also generate toxic emissions when metal particles are released during the spraying process.
