Non-Reciprocity of Exposure of UV-Curable Materials and the Implications for System Design
It is a fairly common practice for a supplier of commercial formulations to indicate the "cure" requirement of a UV-curable coating, ink, adhesive, or paint in "joules per square centimeter" (J/cm²) or in "millijoules per square centimeter" (mJ/cm²). Typically, this does not include much more additional information than the identification of the ge

Safety and risk assessment for UV curing systems
UV sources are used for all kind of applications like gluing, curing and fluorescence detection. On some systems the employee is not completely protected against UV radiation. In this case the workspace must be evaluated by the employer. One way is to use sources rated class 0 according DIN EN 62471:2009. These sources are risk-free. Unfortunately

Using Con-focus RAMAN method to analyze Double Bond Conversion at top 1 micron of Optical Functional Hard Coatings
Double Bond Conversion (DBC) is an important indication of degree of cure (Photo-polymerization), which has a direct relationship with most of the physical properties of cured films, such as surface scratch resistance, surface tacky, double bond residue, and adhesion. DBC has widely been used as a tool of quality control in the UV curing industry [
A new class of multifunctional aromatic amine synergists
Amine synergists are an intrinsic part of most radiation curable formulations that rely upon radical species to bring about polymerisation. They have two potential roles to play in the polymerisation process. One important role is as a co-initiator when used with ketones, usually aromatic ketones. The other very important role is as addit
