Learn if your company and suppliers are impacted by a recent EPA rule banning a chemical widely used in manufacturing. Phenol, Isopropylated Phosphate (3:1) or PIP (3:1) is found in most electrical parts or their manufacture and in the lubricants and cutting fluids used in operating manufacturing technology equipment. In addition, it is used as a fire retardant in constructing electrical boxes and frames. The rule, scheduled to go into effect this September, offers no transition period, limited exceptions, and no accommodation for the inability to replace PIP (3:1) with another substance. The expectation is for similar rules in the near future. Find out how manufacturers are responding at this informative webinar. June 9, 2021 | 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
