Auto Body Spray Coating

Organization(s) New Jersey Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description In 2004 the NJ DEP adopted rules governing volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from vehicle refinishing. Part of the VOC rule requires the use of high volume low pressure (HVLP) spray guns for applying surface coatings on mobile equipment. The NJ DEP Small Business Assistance Program (SBAP) has been working closely with NJ DEP's Air Permitting and Enforcement Programs to develop a process for approving paint spray guns that are not HVLP.

The NJ DEP's rules for approving non-HVLP spray guns for use at automobile refinishing facilities require the owner or operator to submit information to the NJ DEP and the EPA that demonstrates non-HVLP spray gun emissions do not exceed HVLP spray gun emissions. Approvals by other States or a California Regional Air District may be accepted by the NJ DEP as evidence that the tested spray gun meets New Jersey's air emission criteria. Additionally, the automobile refinishing facility must then receive written approval from the NJ DEP and the EPA to use a compliant non-HVLP spray gun. Currently, New Jersey's air regulations specify that each approval is facility-specific.
