Records shall be maintained pursuant to the requirements of Rule 109.

(e) Determination of VOC Content
The VOC content shall be determined (less water and exempt solvents) for adhesives, coatings, and sealants using:

  1. EPA Reference Method 24 (Determination of Volatile Matter Content, Water Content, Density Volume Solids, and Weight Solids of Surface Coatings, Code of Federal Regulations Title 40, Part 60, Appendix A). Analysis done according to EPA Method 24 shall utilize Procedure B of ASTM Method D-2369, referenced in EPA Method 24. The exempt solvent content shall be determined using SCAQMD Test Methods 302 and 303 (SCAQMD "Laboratory Methods of Analysis for Enforcement Samples" manual) or;
  2. SCAQMD Test Methods 302, 303, and 304 (SCAQMD "Laboratory Methods of Analysis for Enforcement Samples" manual).
    The following classes of compounds: cyclic, branched, or linear, completely fluorinated alkanes; cyclic, branched, or linear, completely fluorinated ethers with no unsaturations; cyclic, branched, or linear, completely fluorinated tertiary amines with no unsaturations; and sulfur-containing perfluorocarbons with no unsaturations and with sulfur bonds only to carbon and fluorine, will be analyzed as exempt compounds for compliance with subdivision (c), only at such time as manufacturers specify which individual compounds are used in the coating formulations and identify the test methods, which, prior to such analysis, have been approved by the USEPA and the SCAQMD, that can be used to quantify the amounts of each exempt compound.

(f) Test Methods

  1. Efficiency of the control device shall be determined according to EPA Method 25, 25A, or SCAQMD Test Method 25.1. Emissions determined to exceed any limits established by this rule through the use of either of the above-referenced test methods shall constitute a violation of this rule.
  2. The capture efficiency of the emissions collection system shall be determined by the USEPA method cited in 55 FR (Federal Register) 26865, June 29, 1990 or any other method approved by the USEPA, the California Air Resources Board, and the SCAQMD.
  3. The transfer efficiency of alternative coating application methods shall be determined in accordance with the SCAQMD method "Spray Equipment Transfer Efficiency Test Procedure for Equipment User, May 24, 1989".
  4. The identity and quantity of components in solvents shall be determined in accordance with SCAQMD test method 308 (Quantitation of Compounds by Gas Chromatography) contained in the SCAQMD "Laboratory Methods of Analysis for Enforcement Samples" manual. The VOC composite partial pressure is calculated using the equation in paragraph (b)(63).
  5. Multiple Test Methods

    When more than one test method or set of test methods are specified for any testing, a violation of any requirement of this rule established by any one of the specified test methods or set of test methods shall constitute a violation of the rule.

  6. All test methods referenced in this section shall be the most recently approved version.

(g) Rule 442 Applicability

  1. Any coating, coating operation, or facility which is exempt from all or a portion of this rule, shall comply with the provisions of Rule 442.
  2. Any adhesive, adhesive application operation, or facility which is exempt from all or a portion of this rule, shall comply with the provisions of Rule 442.

(h) Prohibition of Solicitation of Violations

  1. A person shall not solicit or require any other person to use, in the District, any coating or combination of coatings to be applied to any aircraft component subject to the provisions of this rule that does not meet the limits and requirements of this rule, or of an Alternative Emission Control Plan (AECP) approved pursuant to the provisions of subdivision (i).
  2. The requirements of this paragraph shall apply to all written or oral agreements executed or entered into after April 3, 1987.

(i) Alternative Emission Control Plans
An owner/operator may comply with the provisions of paragraph (c)(1) by means of an Alternative Emission Control Plan pursuant to Rule 108.

(j) Reporting Requirements
Persons who perform qualification acceptance testing on coatings with a future compliance date for use in the District shall, beginning July 1, 1994 and at
6-month intervals thereafter, submit a status report describing the progress toward the development of coatings which satisfy future compliance dates. These reports shall contain, at a minimum:
