RadTech YP: New Mentorship Platform for RadTech Members

A few months ago, RadTech members received a survey to identify young professionals and mentors within our community and important issues for young professionals (YPs). We are happy to present our first major announcement from the RadTech Young Professionals Committee.

RadTech is the first nonprofit trade association to join as a member of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI). NAI honors, encourages, and publicly recognizes academic inventors and innovators in all scientific disciplines.

We have gained special access to a mentorship platform through our NAI membership. We encourage all RadTech members to sign up as a mentor or mentee on the Global Academic Inventors Network (GAIN) here using the email associated with your RadTech membership or with your LinkedIn account.

Sign Up Here

When you sign up, please make sure to join the RadTech group to connect with other members. You can also join groups with any affiliated universities or technologies. Through creating a profile, you can choose your additional fields of expertise, link your calendars for the program to schedule mentoring sessions. Then the program automatically matches you with mentees or mentors that can help with career development and more. Mentors can link their calendars for the mentees to schedule mentoring sessions according to mentors’ availability and preference.

This is a unique networking platform that will enable members to better connect within our community and academia. We hope you take advantage of this exciting opportunity.

From the RadTech YP Committee

The RadTech YP Committee aims to help young professionals' (YPs) growth in the use and development of UV & EB technology. We are a group dedicated to enhancing interactions between YPs and senior experts within RadTech. YPs are students and professionals less than 35 years old or with less than five years of experience post-graduation utilizing UV & EB technology in industry, government, or academia. If you have questions or comments or would like to get involved, please contact us via email (

3D Printing Committee

November 12, 2020, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST
Opening presentation by Tom McKeag, The Berkeley Center for Green Chemistry

The industrial sector of additive manufacturing (AM) has experienced double-digit growth over the last decade, as the volume and type of material produced using the seven recognized types of 3D printing has expanded. Initially used mainly for prototyping and specialty production, the growth in the field is now dominated by parts manufacture, an exploration of novel materials, and an expansion of user types, including home use.

While this disruptive technology has enabled the saving of energy and materials, as well as the relatively cheap production of complex shapes, current practices also prompt caution. Many of the chemicals used in AM are of concern; for example, typical SLA resin chemicals may cause skin and eye irritation, skin sensitivity, and aquatic toxicity. As such they also represent a potential cost to businesses such as hazardous waste disposal charges.

This talk will describe some of the recent work by the UC Berkeley Center for Green Chemistry to address human and environmental health challenges in the field of additive manufacturing, and how integrating hazard assessment of the materials used into the research, design and development process can lead to innovation and value.
