|jeremyb||yes it is a city / state thing. I will be attending a meeting in December where dhec is going to be coming in and talking to us. Pretty soon you are going to have to be certified to have a paint booth (maybe you already do?) and be a certified "spray technician" to spray in it. crazy.|

|BarryK||Just got to thinking, I do believe there is a law from 2007-2008 for paint strippers as far as booth requirements and if I'm right off top of head, soda would fall under this, of course.|

Who issued the paper?, Is this a city thing, sounds like it?
Yes if it is a real requirement in your city/ state then waterborne base is not going to change a thing and of course they are coming out with more low VOC bases for people who are having problems using waterborne and either way all the solvents are not gone, so I would guess the paper work must be done.
Next major law I know of is sometime in 2011 or close to that and one of the changes is a paint booth is mandatory.
Waterborne clear?LOL, That would solve your problem as you would be out of business in six months or as soon as an irate customer shot you, whatever comes first.

Waterborne and DHEC.
We all know about the laws from dhec becoming stricter year after year. Heck I was handed a paper the other day that requires me to write down what day my booth runs and how long it runs and that I have inspected all my filters that day.
Question is...how do all these rules comply with waterborne paints? If you switch to a total waterborne system (including your clears and all) what happens then? I can't seem to get an answer anywhere...it's almost like a "DOH!" response when I ask anyone. Anyone have any insight? Do waterborne systems still emit some sort of contaminant into the air or what?
