Exposure Risk Assessment: Production to Pressroom

In a regulatory climate which undergoes continual changes, manufacturers are presented with the dilemma on how to respond efficiently to reclassifications of UV ink raw materials. The reclassification of PI369, as a reproductive toxin and subsequently updated by the European Union as a Substances of Very High Concern, illuminates a situation where the focus of the regulatory climate is largely centered around the hazards of raw materials rather than risk and exposure. The current paper evaluates the misting exposure in a production facility, a proof of concept inkometer study and at a printing facility.
