In this study, emissions measurements were carried out at a representative facility (Eljer Plumbingware in Wilson, NC) that manufactures polyester resin reinforced shower stalls and bathtubs by spraying styrene-based resins onto molds in vented, open, spray booths. Styrene emissions were characterized for the three stages of manufacture by measuring styrene concentrations at the vents of spray booths used in each part of the process. In addition, styrene concentrations were measured at each ventilation fan exhaust. Emission levels were determined using EPA Method 18 to obtain integrated emissions samples and total hydrocarbon (THC) analyzers to measure continuous emissions levels during the EPA Method 18 sampling.
