What is Neshap 6H training?
The EPA’s National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) requires any employee that handles a spray gun to be certified every 5 years. Great News! GMG EnviroSafe has an online certification that can complete the required training for your painters without them ever leaving the shop!
What does Neshap stand for?
National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants
National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) are stationary source standards for hazardous air pollutants.
What spray gun can help prevent environmental pollution?
Using less paint results in less emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) as well as less overspray (dry waste) generated. HVLP guns are more effective than conventional atomized air spray guns when technicians are properly trained.
What does the paint rule regulates?
This rule attempts to reduce emissions of cadmium (Cd), chromium (Cr), lead (Pb), manganese (Mn), and nickel (Ni) emitted during the spray application surface coating operations. Also, the rule regulates paint stripping operations that remove dried coating using products containing methylene chloride (MeCl).
How do HVLP spray guns and VOCs relate to one another?
Using less paint results in less emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) as well as less overspray (dry waste) generated. Properly used HVLP spray guns often result in a higher transfer efficiency, which results in reduced overspray.
What is the maximum spray gun Air cap pressure?
Yes. HVLP air caps are typically rated for a maximum gun inlet pressure to achieve 10 psi at the air cap.
Can I paint cars in my garage?
Can You Paint A Car In Your Garage? Yes. If the cars would be shown side by side in the same booth space, no two would be the same. While the quality of paint varies, applying it wherever you can can is often costly.
What is 6H NESHAP?

What does NESHAP stand for?
Three of these are included in the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP): Paint Stripping and Miscellaneous Surface Coating Operations at Area Sources [40 Code ofFederal Regulations (CFR)Part 63, Subpart HHHHHH], sometimes called “6H” or “6HNESHAP”.
What does NESHAP Subpart xxxxxx apply to?
NESHAP Subpart XXXXXX applies not only to spray booths, but also to dry abrasive blasting, machining, dry grinding and polishing with machines and welding.
What is the NESHAP limit for paint?
In order for a coating or paint to contain these compounds as defined under the NESHAP, the compounds must be present in concentrations equal to or greater than 0.1 percent by mass for Cadmium, Chromium, Lead and Nickel or be present in concentrations equal toor greater than 1.0 percent by mass for Manganese.
