The environmental, health and safety (EH&S) committee of RadTech, the Association for Ultraviolet (UV) and Electron Beam (EB) Technology, has developed a video detailing safe handling practices for UV/EB curable materials.
“RadTech has adopted the principles of product Stewardship. As such, we are taking a proactive approach to promote the safe handling of UV and EB curable materials,” said Maureen Waite of Sartomer Company, chair of the RadTech EH&S Committee. “This safety video is a great tool for communicating the safety of UV/EB technology throughout industry. We would like all companies that handle UV or EB curable materials in their workplace – or are considering use of the technology – to obtain a copy of the video. The video can be used internally as part of a supplier company's training program and sent to customers for use as a training tool in their facilities.”
The video outlines proper handling and storage practices and the appropriate protective equipment that should be worn when handling UV and EB curable materials. Equipment safety is also reviewed. Copies of “UV/EB Curing-A Safe Choice” are offered free of charge as a service of the RadTech membership. Please e-mail RadTech at for a copy.
