Subject: Stereolithographic equipment safety
Dear Colleagues:
A research group at one of our off-campus locations will be purchasing
stereolithographic, rapid prototyping equipment (SLA) for its dry
laboratory on the 8th floor (twelve floors total) of an office building.
A meeting is scheduled to discuss equipment operation, materials (epoxy
resins) used, post production work, and safety concerns.
I will propose installation of standard safety equipment such as local
ventilation (for renegade odors) and an eyewash station, but wanted to
first solicit the collective wisdom of members who've had experience
with SLA labs.
Many thanks for your time and help.
