§ 95376. Requirements Applicable to Table 2 of Section 95374(b).
(a) Prohibitions. No person may offer any equipment or product for sale, lease, rent, or otherwise cause any equipment or product manufactured after the effective date, to enter into commerce in the State of California if that equipment or product uses or will use a substitute in a manner inconsistent with any substitute in end-uses listed in Table 2 of section 95374(b) of this subarticle.
(b) Exceptions. The following exceptions apply to the list of prohibited substances or the effective dates for prohibited substances for end-uses identified in Table 2 of section 95374(b) of this subarticle:
(1) Foam End-Uses. Except where specified below, the effective date for foam end-uses identified in Table 2 of section 95374(b) of this subarticle are extended to January 1, 2022, for military applications and January 1, 2025, for space- and aeronautics-related applications, where reasonable efforts have been made to ascertain that other alternatives are not technically feasible due to performance or safety requirements, including closed cell foam products and products containing closed cell foams manufactured with the applicable prohibited substances on or before these dates.
(A) Polystyrene: Extruded Boardstock and Billet: The prohibited substances for polystyrene extruded boardstock and billet are acceptable for use in this specific end-use from January 1, 2021, until January 1, 2022, in military applications and until January 1, 2025, for space- and aeronautics-related applications where reasonable efforts have been made to ascertain that other alternatives are not technically feasible due to performance or safety requirements. Closed cell foam products and products containing closed cell foams manufactured with the prohibited substances for polystyrene extruded boardstock and billet on or before January 1, 2022, for military applications or on or before January 1, 2025, in space- and aeronautics-related applications, may be used after those dates.
(B) Rigid Polyurethane: Spray Foam - High-Pressure Two-Component (“High-Pressure RP”): The prohibited substances for High-Pressure RP are acceptable for use in High-Pressure RP from January 1, 2020, until January 1, 2025, only in military or space- and aeronautics-related applications where reasonable efforts have been made to ascertain that other alternatives are not technically feasible due to performance or safety requirements. Closed cell foam products and products containing closed cell foams manufactured with the prohibited substances for High-Pressure RP on or before January 1, 2025, may be used after that date.
(C) Rigid Polyurethane: Spray Foam - Low-Pressure Two-Component (“Low-Pressure RP”): The prohibited substances for Low-Pressure RP are acceptable for use in Low Pressure RP from January 1, 2021, until January 1, 2025, only in military or space- and aeronautics-related applications where reasonable efforts have been made to ascertain that other alternatives are not technically feasible due to performance or safety requirements. Low pressure two-component spray foam kits manufactured with the prohibited substances for Low-Pressure RP on or before January 1, 2025, for military or space- and aeronautics-related applications may be used after that date.
(2) Chillers End-Uses. New centrifugal chillers and new positive displacement chillers are allowed to use HFC-134a for military marine vessels and allowed to use R-404A and HFC-134a for human-rated spacecraft and related support equipment where reasonable efforts have been made to ascertain that other alternatives are not technically feasible due to performance or safety requirements.
(3) Aerosols - Propellants End-Uses. HFC-134a is allowed in the following aerosol propellant specific uses:
(A) Cleaning products for removal of grease, flux and other soils from electrical equipment or electronics;
(B) Refrigerant flushes;
(C) Products for sensitivity testing of smoke detectors;
(D) Sprays containing corrosion preventive compounds used in the maintenance of aircraft, electrical equipment or electronics, or military equipment;
(E) Duster sprays specifically for removal of dust from photographic negatives, semiconductor chips, and specimens under electron microscopes, and energized electrical equipment;
(F) Adhesives and sealants in large canisters;
(G) Lubricants and freeze sprays for electrical equipment or electronics;
(H) Sprays for aircraft maintenance;
(I) Pesticides for use near electrical wires or in aircraft, in total release insecticide foggers, or in certified organic use pesticides for which the U.S. EPA has specifically disallowed all other lower-global warming potential (GWP) propellants;
(J) Mold release agents and mold cleaners;
(K) Lubricants and cleaners for spinnerettes for synthetic fabrics;
(L) Document preservation sprays;
(M) Metered dose inhalers (MDIs) approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for medical purposes;
(N) Wound care sprays;
(O) Topical coolant sprays for pain relief; and
(P) Products for removing bandage adhesives from skin.
