9VAC5-40-8810. Applicability and Designation of Affected Facility.

Article 59
Emission Standards for Miscellaneous Metal Parts and Products Coating Application Systems in the Northern Virginia Volatile Organic Compound Emissions Control Area, 8-hour Ozone Standard (Rule 4-59)

A. Except as provided in subsections C through H of this section, the affected facility to which the provisions of this article apply is each miscellaneous metal product and plastic parts surface coating operation at a facility where the total actual emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from all miscellaneous metal product and plastic parts surface coating operations, including related cleaning activities, at that facility are equal to or exceed 6.8 kilograms per day (15 pounds per day), or an equivalent level of 2.7 tons per 12-month rolling period, before consideration of controls.

B. The provisions of this article apply only to affected facilities located in the Northern Virginia VOC Emissions Control Area designated in subdivision 1 a of 9VAC5-20-206.

C. Facilities that coat bodies or body parts for new heavier vehicles (including all vehicles that meet the definition of the term "other motor vehicles" as defined in 40 CFR 63.3176 of the National Emission Standards for Surface Coating of Automobile and Light-Duty Trucks) may, in lieu of complying with the provisions of this article, opt to comply with Article 28 (Emission Standards for Automobile and Light Duty Truck Coating Application Systems, 9VAC5-40-3860 et seq.) of 9VAC5-40 (Existing Stationary Sources).

D. The provisions of this article do not apply to the following:

1. Miscellaneous metal product and plastic parts surface coating operations subject to Article 26 (Emissions Standards for Large Appliance Coating Application Systems, 9VAC5-40-3560 et seq.), Article 27 (Emission Standards for Magnet Wire Coating Application Systems, 9VAC5-40-3710 et seq.), Article 29 (Emission Standards for Can Coating Application Systems, 9VAC5-40-4010 et seq.), Article 30 (Emission Standards for Metal Coil Coating Application Systems, 9VAC5-40-4160), Article 31 (Emission Standards for Paper and Fabric Coating Application Systems, 9VAC5-40-4310), Article 33 (Emissions Standards for Metal Furniture Coating Application Systems, 9VAC5-40-4610 et seq.), and Article 48 (Emission Standards for Mobile Equipment Repair and Refinishing Operations, 9VAC5-40-6970 et seq.) of 9VAC5-40 (Existing Stationary Sources); and Article 5 (Emission Standards for Architectural and Industrial Maintenance Coatings, 9VAC5-45-520 et seq.) of 9VAC5-45 (Consumer and Commercial Products).

2. Coating application systems used exclusively for determination of product quality and coatings that are applied to test panels and coupons as part of research and development, quality control, or performance testing activities at paint research or manufacturing facilities.

3. Coatings applied using a handheld, pressurized, nonrefillable container that expels coatings from the container in a finely divided spray when a valve on the container is depressed.

4. Miscellaneous metal product and plastic parts surface coating operations associated with the following product categories or processes: aerospace coatings; wood furniture coatings; fiberglass boat manufacturing materials; and paper, film, and foil coatings not otherwise regulated under Article 31 (Emission Standards for Paper and Fabric Coating Application Systems, 9VAC5-40-4310) of 9VAC5-40 (Existing Stationary Sources).

5. Recommended VOC limits and application methods do not apply to aerosol coating products or powder coatings.

E. For metal coatings:

1. Recommended work practices still apply; however, the VOC limits and application methods for provisions of this article do not apply to the following:

a. Stencil coatings;

b. Safety-indicating coatings;

c Solid-film lubricants;

d. Electric-insulating and thermal conducting coatings;

e. Magnetic data storage disk coatings; and

f. Plastic extruded onto metal parts to form a coating.

2. Recommended VOC limits and work practices still apply to these coatings and coating operations; however, the application methods for provisions of this article do not apply to the following:

a. Touch-up coatings;

b. Repair coatings; and

c. Textured finishes.

F. For plastic coatings:

1. Recommended application and work practices still apply to these coatings and coating operations; however, the VOC limits for provisions of this article do not apply to the following:

a. Touch-up and repair coatings;

b. Stencil coatings applied on clear or transparent substrates;

c. Clear or translucent coatings;

d. Coatings applied at a paint manufacturing facility while conducting performance tests on the coatings;

e. Any individual coating category used in volumes less than 50 gallons in any one year, if substitute complaint coatings are not available, provided that the total usage of all such coatings does not exceed 200 gallons per year, per facility;

f. Reflective coating applied to highway cones;

g. Mask coatings that are less than 0.5 millimeter thick (dried) and the area coated is less than 25 square inches;

h. EMI/RF shielding coatings; and

i. Heparin-benzalkonium chloride (HBAC)-contained coatings applied to medical devices, provided that the total usage of all such coatings does not exceed 100 gallons per year, per facility.

2. The application methods for provisions of this article do not apply to airbrush methods using five gallons or less per year of coating; however, VOC limits and work practices do apply.

G. For automotive/transportation and business machine plastic part coatings:

1. The VOC limits for provisions of this article do not apply to the following:

a. Texture coatings;

b. Vacuum metalizing coatings;

c. Gloss reducers;

d. Texture topcoats;

e. Adhesion primers;

f. Electrostatic preparation coatings;

g. Resist coatings; and

h. Stencil coatings.

2. Recommended application and work practices still apply to these coatings and coating operations.

H. For pleasure craft surface coating operations, VOC limits and work practices do apply to extreme high gloss coatings; however, recommended application methods do not apply.
