is a viable finishing technology for coil coating and provides numerous benefits.
By switching to an EB curing
system on gravure, we were able to improve gloss by 60 percent and moisture protection was improved by 50 percent.
Results similar to those found after UV irradiation were also obtained after EB curing
The second-day end-user sessions included Forum on UV & EB Curing
for Packaging; Advancements in UV Industrial Inkjet; UV Curing for Plastics; and UV Curing for Metal Finishing.
Interest is growing in Europe in both UV and EB curing
for flexible package printing," Mr.
The compositions give good solvent- and water-resistance, are waterborne- and solventborne-modified polyolefin compositions containing unsaturated pendant groups, such as reaction product of functionalized polyolefins with ethylenically unsaturated compounds having functional groups reactive with functional groups of polyolefins, and also contain photoinitiator and optionally, other ethylenically unsaturated crosslinking agents, for UV and EB curing
It is recognized that EB curing
has great advantages in comparison with UV curing for formulating materials without using photoinitiators.
reaction product of functionalized polyolefins with ethylencially unsaturated compounds having functional groups reactions with functional groups of polyolefins, and also contain photoinitiator and optionally, other ethylencially unsaturated crosslinkng agents for UV or EB curing
With technical sessions including Green Chemistry, Renewable Resources, Impact of REACH, Nanomaterials, Kinetics, Electronics Chemistry, Graphic Arts, Wood Coatings, High Performance Coatings and more, RadTech, the Association for Ultraviolet (UV) and Electron Beam (EB) processes, will feature the latest technical advancements in UV and EB curing
technology at RadTech UV & EB Technology Expo & Conference 2008, the world's largest UV and EB technology exposition and conference, May 4-7, 2008 at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL.
With the use of UV and EB curing
for consumer products on the rise, there had been hope that e|5: UV & EB Technology Expo and Conference 2004, sponsored by RadTech, the association for UV and EB technology, would approach previous levels.
A big advantage of EB curing
is that it does not require photo initiators because the electrons deliver sufficient energy to start the crosslinking reaction.
Is UV or EB curing
technology part of your operation?
