Assessment Topic

Pursuant to Sections 301, 304, 306, 307, and 501 of the Clean Water Act, EPA has collected and analyzed data for plants in the Coil Coating Point Source Category. Effluent limitations and performance standards for this industry were proposed on January 12, 1981 (46 FR 2934). This document and the administrative record provide the technical basis for promulgating effluent limitations for existing direct dischargers, standards for new source direct dischargers, and pretreatment standards for new and existing indirect dischargers.
"Coil coating" is a term generally used to describe the combination of processing steps involved in converting a coil - a long thin strip of metal rolled into a coil - into a coil of painted metal ready for further industrial use. Three basis materials are commonly used for coil coating: steel, galvanized (steel), and aluminum.
