For the most part, the UV coating should not be considered hazardous. It will
should not exhibit the characteristic of ignitability and should also pass
TCLP for metals as there should not be any metals (assuming it is a clear
coating). UV materials also typically do not have any F, P, K or U listed
chemicals in them. I would be concerned about the presence of isopropyl
alcohol. It can take as little as 5% IPA for a waste to exhibit a flash below
140 deg. F. Unless the waste has been previously profiled, it would be best to
have it evaluated. Typically, the vendor who takes the waste will profile the
waste and will test for flashpoint, metals, BTU value, water content, etc.
Some vendors charge for this, while others do not. If the waste is evaluated,
please send me a copy of the results.
