Maureen Waite of Sartomer Awarded for Achievement
CHEVY CHASE, Md.—Maureeen Waite of Sartomer Co. received the 5th annual RadTech President's Award at the RadTech Winter meeting in Palm Beach, FL. This award is presented to individual members that make significant contributions to RadTech and the advancement of UV and EB technology. Waite, Chair of the RadTech Environmental Health and Safety Committee, was recognized for her efforts in the development of a new RadTech health and safety video, "UV/EB Curing, A Safe Choice."
"Maureen provided not only leadership, but long hours of volunteerism to develop this important industry resource," says David Harbourne, of Fusion UV and President of RadTech. "By some estimates, more than two million people safely handle UV and EB curable materials every day at over a half million workstations around the world. Typically, the same precautions that should be taken processing any ink, coating or adhesive, are the precautions necessary for UV and EB. This video helps to point out any special considerations, and addresses potential misconceptions concerning the safe use of the technology."
"RadTech is an important forum and resource for any company interested in UV/EB technology," says Waite. "It was gratifying to have many individuals volunteer to assist, with a special thank you to Sun Chemical for their efforts to produce the video."
The video is a tremendous success with over 1,000 CDs distributed literally around the world, with requests coming as far as Mexico, Kenya,South Africa, Europe, India, Argentina and China." As a service to the UV/EB community, individual copies of the CD are available free of charge from RadTech.
