Abstract:
These final guidelines address reasonably available control technologies (RACT) for control of VOC emissions from coating operations at aerospace manufacturing and rework operations. In addition, the guideline also address VOC emissions from primer, topcoat, and "specialty" coating application, maskant application, sealing, and cleaning operations. Emission limits for processes described in the final rule are identical to the limits that EPA has previously established for the aerospace industry.

State and local regulations developed as a result of the guidelines will affect more than 2,800 facilities. The only new requirements in the guidelines (not included in the original rulemaking) concern sealants, adhesives, and specialty coatings, which represent only about 3 percent of all VOC emissions from aerospace coating operations. Therefore, the additional costs and emission reductions resulting from the guidelines will be negligible.
