WEBINAR: Introduction to the Basics of UV/EB Materials
Thursday, September 27, 2012
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
Presenter: Dr. Mike Idacavage, Director, Business Development, Esstech Inc.
The Energy Curable industry has grown tremendously since its beginnings in the early 1970s. The use of light or low energy electrons as the energy source for curing coatings is very attractive from a sustainability point of view. However, the main driving force for this technology has been the ability to lower process time and costs along with the ability to prepare coatings with unique properties. This webinar will present an introduction to UV and EB (Electron Beam) curing. In addition to the basic chemistry, an overview of various aspects of formulating for UV or EB coatings will be covered.
SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry’s (SUNY-ESF) in collaboration with RadTech International North America presents The Future of UV/EB Advanced Manufacturing: Trends, Strategies, and Applications - a monthly webinar series.
This national webinar series will address timely and relevant trends, issues and applications for individuals and organizations committed to expanding or exploring Ultraviolet/Electron beam (UV/EB) curing technologies. Selected topics will include an introduction to UV/EB materials, equipment, measurements, state and federal regulations and applications to food packaging and metals substrates. Webinars will entail sixty minutes of real-time presentation and interactive facilitated discussion with participants. This webinar series will also feature training and education opportunities available through the SUNY-ESF/RadTech collaboration. All webinars are offered free to interested individuals.
