Division 10

Division 10

Photopolymer: High level of productivity. Over 400 signs per day. Division 10

Photopolymer: Not all photopolymer is created equal. Division 10

What is PETG? Division 10

What is PETG ! PETG, glycol-modified polyethylene terephthalate, is a co polyester that is a clear amorphous thermoplastic. ! PETG exhibits has high stiffness, hardness, and good impact strength. ! The clear PETG base of all sheets contains a co-extruded UV inhibitor to block unwanted light contamination and increase the longevity and resilience of the material. Division 10

PETG waste can be sent to recycling facilities to be incorporated into post industrial waste content materials. Division 10

Code Requirements Division 10

Flammability ! Signs made from photopolymer or PETG thermoplastic will meet all flammability requirements for light transmitting plastics specified by… ! BOCA Building Officials and Code Administrators SBCCI Southern Building Code Congress International ICBO International Conference of Building Officials Division 10

Burn Rate ! Signs made from photopolymer on PETG thermoplastic when tested according to ASTM D 635 will burn less than one inch. ! It therefore meets the requirements for classification CC1 at a nominal thickness of 1/16”. ! Division 10

Vertical Burn ! ASTM Signs Products made from photopolymer on PETG thermoplastic is classified by UL as 94V-2 in a thickness of 1/8" or greater. ! A sheet thickness less than 1/8" is classified as 94 HB. ! ! ! Division 10

How To Fabricate Division 10

STEP 1 STEP 2 STEP 3 Contact With Flim Negative Exposure with UV Light Wash in Plain Tap Water The first step is to place a high density film negative on top of the photopolymer sheet. There is a bank of UV lamps that shine down and pass through the clear areas of the film negative and expose the photopolymer material. The unexposed photopolymer gets washed away during the washout process in plain tap water. STEP 4 STEP 5 HOW TO MAKE PHOTOPOLYMER SIGNS 5 5 Easy Steps STEP Drying The photopolymer effluent is 100% biodegradable and goes right down the drain. You are left with the exposed raised images. Post Exposure process of making photopolymer signage: Dry the moisture off the material. The photopolymer and the base PETG does not absorb moisture during the washout - drying is to evaporate any standing moisture left on the sheet. Post exposure is a second exposure to fully cure, harden and activate the photpolymer. This is the final step in processing photopolymer. Note: This shows how the Braille will appear after the top coating.

Over 400 signs Division 10

Conclusion ! Accessible (ADA Compliant) Signs manufactured using PETG photopolymer meet ALL US and International Laws & Standards, including Title 24 & The 2010 Standard for Accessible Design. ! Accessible (ADA Compliant) Signs manufactured using PETG base photopolymer are integrally (single piece) constructed. ! Accessible (ADA Compliant) Signs manufactured using PETG base photopolymer have a .001 moisture absorption ratio. ! Accessible (ADA Compliant) Signs manufactured using PETG base photopolymer meet or exceed burn/vertical burn standards for ALL international standards. Over 400 signs Division 10

This concludes the AIA Continuing Education Program ! Credits for this course will be filed with the AIA and Certificates of Completion provided within 2 weeks
