A facility uses 20 tons per year of gel coat:
15 tons of pigmented gel coat; and
5 tons of tooling gel coat.
200 lbs (0.1 ton) of the tooling gel coat is used for mold touch-up and repair.
36. Resin and Gel Coat Compliance Options
37. No limit on HAP content of resin used for closed molding.
No records needed.
Process must meet the definition of closed molding. Closed Molding Requirements
38. Fabric and other reinforcements are placed between two mold surfaces.
Mold surfaces could be rigid or flexible.

40. Compliant Materials Option Based On Each Material All materials in an open molding operation meet specific HAP content limits.
No compliance calculations
41. HAP Content Limits for Resin and Gel Coat Operations
42. HAP Content Limits for Production Resin Vacuum Bagging Operations Limits are Derived from MACT Model Point Value Equations
43. Weighted-average HAP content determined monthly from the material used in each 12-month compliance period.
Separate compliance determination for each operation.
Benefit: You can use a mix of low-HAP and high HAP materials within an operation. Compliant Materials Option Based on Weighted-Average HAP Content
44. Weighted-Average HAP Content Example
45. Step 1: Total resin used is 100 Mg; 5 Mg of the vinylester skin coat resin (5% of total) is exempt
47. Step 3: Divide Mg HAP by Mg resin and multiply by 100%
48. HAP content of each material.
Amount of each material used per month.
Calculations performed each month to demonstrate compliance based on previous 12 months data. Records Needed for the Compliant Materials Option Based on Weighted-Average HAP Content:
49. Emissions Averaging Emission limit and emission rate are 12-month rolling averages.
Emission limit and emission rate may change every month.
50. Emissions Averaging Features Averaging does not need to include all operations.
Averaging must be done using MACT model point values.
MACT model point values:
Are NOT intended for use as emission factors.
MUST be calculated from the equations in the rule.
51. Emissions Averaging Implementation Plan Intended as a “road-map.”
Submitted with notification of compliance status.
Describes the operations included in the average.
Describes HAP contents, application methods, other control methods.
Includes calculations demonstrating future compliance.
Kept on site and available for inspection.
Submit any changes with the next semi-annual compliance report.
52. Calculating the Emission Limitation HAP limit
= 46(MR) + 159(MPG) + 291(MCG) + 54(MTR) + 214(MTG)
HAP limit = allowable HAP emissions (kg/year)
Mi = mass of each material used, Mg
(1 Mg = 1.1023 tons)
53. Calculating the Emission Rate HAP emissions
= PVR(MR) + PVPG(MPG) + PVCG(MCG) + PVTR(MTR) + PVTG(MTG)
HAP emissions = HAP emission rate (kg/year)
PVi = point value for each material used,
kg HAP/Mg material used
(1 Mg = 1.1023 tons)
54. MACT Model Point value Equations Table 3 to Subpart VVVV Example: Production resin, non-spray:
kg HAP/Mg resin applied = 0.014(HAP%)2.275
Separate point value equations for resin based on:
atomized or non-atomized application
vacuum bagging with or without roll-out
One equation for all gel coat operations
55. Example: Is this facility in compliance based on emissions averaging?
56. Step 1: Calculate the Emission Limit HAP limit
= 46(MR) + 159(MPG) + 291(MCG) + 54(MTR) + 214(MTG)
= 46(90+10) + 159(30) + 291(0) + 54(0) + 214(0)
= 9,370 kg HAP
57. Step 2: Calculate the MACT Model Point Value for Each Operation
58. Step 3: Calculate HAP Emissions (kg/yr)
59. Step 4: Compare the HAP Emissions to the HAP Limit
60. The HAP content of each material.
The amount of each material used per month.
Monthly compliance calculations.

61. Filled resins are mixed with an inert filler to reduce shrinkage and improve heat transfer.
Most often used for building molds (tooling).
Unfilled (neat) resin contains more styrene (e.g., 45%).
Filled resins cannot comply based on the HAP content of the filled resin:
Must use MACT model point values.
Fraction of styrene emitted is higher than unfilled resin of same HAP content. What are Filled Resins?
62. Standards for Filled Resins Production resin: 46 kg HAP/Mg filled resin applied.
Tooling resin: 54 kg HAP/Mg filled resin applied.
63. Calculating the MACT Model Point Value for a Filled Resin
64. Example: Is this filled tooling resin in compliance? (Limit = 54 kg/Mg) The resin has a HAP content of 46 percent.
The resin is mixed 40 percent by weight with filler and applied with a flow coater.
65. Step 1: Determine the MACT model point value for the unfilled resin
66. Step 2: Calculate PVF
PVF = 84.9 kg/Mg x (100 - 40% filler)/100
= 50.9 kg/Mg
PVF is less than 54 kg/Mg.
This filled resin is in compliance.
67. Example: Using Filled Resins in Emissions Averaging
68. Step 1: Calculate the Emission Limit HAP limit
= 46(MR) + 159(MPG) + 291(MCG) + 54(MTR) + 214(MTG)
= 46(90+10) + 159(30) + 291(0) + 54(10) + 214(0)
= 9,910 kg HAP
69. Step 2: Determine HAP Emissions (kg/yr)
70. Step 3: Compare the HAP Emissions to the HAP Limit HAP emissions = 9,560 kg
HAP limit = 9,910 kg
The operations included in the average are in compliance for this 12-month period.
71. Records Needed if Using Filled Resins HAP content of the neat (unfilled) resin.
Amount of resin and filler used.

Repeat performance test every 5 years with operating permit renewal.
74. Add-On Capture and Control System Testing Use EPA Method 25 to measure THC as a surrogate for HAP emissions or EPA Method 18 to measure HAP.
Is the emission capture system a permanent total enclosure (per EPA Method 204)?
YES: measure emissions at the stack only.
