White Paper initiates safer welding

Stevens Industrial Services (SIS) : 17 November, 2004  (New Product)
Stevens Industrial Services (SIS), a specialist in weld spatter control products, has produced a White Paper to promote safer and more productive welding.
Welding productivity can be maximised with the use of anti-spatter treatments and sprays, which are designed to make spatter removal easy. Despite this, research shows that, on average, many welders continue to waste eight hours every working week on traditional methods of spatter removal, such as chipping, sanding, grinding, or scraping.

Stevens Industrial Services (SIS), a specialist in weld spatter control products, has produced a White Paper to promote safer and more productive welding. The premise for this is based on the results of a survey to welders, in-depth desk research and the vast experience of SIS.

The White Paper reveals that industry pays a high price for time wasted by spatter removal and suggests measures that can be taken to capitalise on productivity.
Health and safety also comes under the spotlight since most traditional anti-spatter sprays contain the category 3 carcinogenic chemical, Dichloromethane.

The White Paper exposes the fact that too many welders are unaware of the harmful effects of Dichloromethane and provides information about dealing with this problem in the welding environment.
