                                      SUMMARY
e




            Maremont Corporation (Maremont) of Carol Stream, Illinois, has
    applied for exemption on their new aftermarket catalytic converters under

    the California regulations for new aftermarket catalytic converters.     In

    addition, they have applied for an exemption allowing the use of their

    three—way and three—way plus converters in two—way applications.

            Emissions data submitted show that the Maremont catalytic converters

    meet the requirements of Vehicle Code Section 27156 and Title 13, California

    Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h).   Based on the above, the staff

    recommends that the exemption be granted as requested.

                  EVALUATION OF MAREMONT NEW AFTERMARKET
                     CATALYTIC CONVERTERS FOR EXEMPTION
          FROM THE PROHIBITIONS OF VEHICLE CODE SECTION 27156 AND
         TITLE 13, CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS, SECTION 2222(h)


1.      INTRODUCTION

        Maremont Corporation of Carol Stream, Illinois, has applied for an

exemption for their new aftermarket catalytic converters, which are shown in

Table 1 of the Appendix, in accordance with the California regulations on

new aftermarket catalytic converters.   In addition, they have applied for an

exemption to allow the use of their three—way plus and three—way converters

in two—way applications.

II.     CONCLUSION

~       The applicant has submitted all the required information and based

on the submitted exhaust emissions test data, the staff concludes that the

catalytic converters meet the criteria set forth in Vehicle Code Section

27156 and Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h).

III.    RECOMMENDATION
        The staff recommends that the exemption be granted as requested and

that Executive Order No. D—184—2 permitting the advertisement, sales and

installation of the new aftermarket cataiytic converters be issued.

IV.      EY      SCRIPTION

        The Maremont catalytic converter consists of honeycomb type

substrates coated with platinum and palladium plus rhodium and enclosed in

an outer shell or container of stainless steel.   The three—way plus

cxidation catalytic converter incorporates an air injection tube between two

substrates.


        The Maremont Corporation catalytic converters use materials and

construction similar to the original equipment manufacturers.     The catalytic

converters are sold with installation instructions and kits as shown in the

application catalog.     They are also sold with a two year or 25,000 mile

warranty on the substrates and five years or 50,000 miles on the container

or shell.

v.          V     7       0

        Maremont Corporation provided test data for the catalytic

converters.     The tests were conducted by Automotive Testing and Development

Services, Inc. (formarly Olson Engineering, Inc.), Huntington Beach,

California.     Two CVS—75 emission tests were conducted on the test vehicle

with the converter instailed and two CVS—75 tests were conducted with

exhaust backpressure simulator.    The tests were conducted following the

25,000 miles mileage accumulation on each of the two test converters.        The

mileage accumulation vehicles had test weights and engine displacements

equal or higher than the test vehicle.     The conversion efficiencies of the

converters, maximum vehicle weight and maximum engine displacement are shown

in Table 1 of the Appendix.    All of the conversion efficiencies meet the

requirements of the California regulation.

        The staff based the evaluation of the new aftermarket catalytic

converters on the data from Automotive Testing and Development Services,

Inc. tests.
