Are Your Paint Arrestors EPA Compliant?

Effective January 10, 2011, all collision repair businesses must comply with EPA rule 40 CFR Part 63 (6H).  With respect to filtration, 40 CFR Part 63 (6H) mandates that any spray booth or prep station must be equipped with paint arrestors demonstrated to achieve at least 98% capture efficiency of paint overspray and a manufacturer's test report must be maintained on-site.

Viskon-Aire, in January 2010, reconfirmed 40 CFR Part 63 (6H) compliance of its entire line of paint arrestors, both fiberglass (SG-15, 107X and XHD) and polyester (PS and Super PS).  So as always, you can paint with confidence when you use Viskon-Aire filtration products.
