Comparison of UV and EB Technology for Printing and Packaging Applications
By: Stephen C. Lapin, PCT Engineered Systems LLC, Davenport, Iowa.Source: RadTech Report 2008UV/EB curing technology for inks, coatings and laminating adhesives has become well established in certain segments of the packaging industry—including folding cartons, labels and multiwall bags.There is also growing inter
Chemistry and reactivity of photoinitiators: scope and expectations
By Jean-Pierre Fouassier - Labatoire de Photochimie GénéraleRadTech Europe Conference 1989Radiation curing is, nowadays, a well-established technology which develops and grows rapidly on an industrial scale. Originally, the most emergent applications were related to the UV-curing of coatings. Reprography (printing plates, integrated
Cationic UV Curable Coatings: Aspects of Consumer Safety in Food Packaging
By Helmut G. Gaube, Juergen Ohlemacher - Degussa AGRadTech Conference 1989Exterior clear coatings based on cationically UV cured epoxy formulations offer product advantages over UV acrylate systems in food packaging applications including low residual odor. This paper presents analytical results from migration and extraction tests fo
Coating performances and formulation parameters of cationic systems
By P.J. -M. Manus, Union Carbide Europe S.A. - RadTech Europe Conference 1989Cationic UV initiated polymerization is now a well established technology in the radiation curing market. Distinctive properties of cationic UV initiated polymerization include rapid cure response, absence of oxygen inhibition, post cure effect and high
The Effect of Metal Foil Substrate Variation on UV Curing Studied by UV N1O1 Cure Tester, FTIR and UV Spectrophotometry.
By i. H. Nobhs, S. A. Orton and P. K. T. Oldring, University of Leeds, Thomas Swan & Co - RadTech Europe Conference 1989The effect of substrate reflectance and surface roughness on the curing properties of a commercial ink and a clear lacquer on an aluminium foil laminate were studied. The cure times recorded by a UV N1O1 Cu
Influence of irradiation conditions on the properties of UV cured films
By Aldo Priola, Giuseppe Gozzelino, Universita di Messina, Politecnico di Torino - RadTech Europe Conference 1989In this work the influence of irradiation and curing conditions on some properties of UV cured films was investigated. As starting materials two types of acrylic products, namely bisphenol-A-dihydroxyethyl-diacrylate and b
