Validation and routine process control for low-energy electron accelerators
Radiation curing may not operate under the same strict legal requirements as, for example, radiation sterilization, but it is essential that dose is not delivered to product outside specifications without the knowledge of the operator. This is obtained though establishing and understanding the relationships between key parameters (en
UV Spectral Stability as it relates to the UV Bulb Temperature
For optimum ultraviolet (UV) curing efficiency, the material to be cured must match the specific spectral output of a UV bulb. This output, measured in nanometers at each wavelength throughout the UV range, is the defined spectral measurement used to quantify one UV bulb type from another. Each bulb has its own unique characteristic,
UV powders for wood coatings
UV powders are generally based on unsaturated (meth)acrylate polyesters and urethane (meth)acrylates, photoinitiators and additives (pigments or fillers). All compounds are solids, which make the formulations environmental friendly.The objective of this work is to correlate the formulations characteristics with the photochemical proc
UV-initiated Cationic Curing in Electro and Electronics Applications
UV-initiated cationic curing is a way to create useful materials for coatings, sealings and adhesives in diverse application areas. From the past three decades up to now several special development examples are presented from the field of electronics and electro technology.For optimum results from reactive resin chemistry it is neces
UV curing and sol-gel based chemistry: towards nanocomposite coatings in a one step process
The synthesis of organic-inorganic sol-gel coatings was performed using alkoxysilanes bearing either an epoxy or a methacrylate reactive function. These hybrid materials combine numerous advantages such as good adhesion to substrates, abrasion and chemical resistance. Usually, they are synthesized through the successive conventional
UV cured coatings for household appliances and decorative panels
• AFP-coated stainless steel is a high-end “design” product.• The trend for the adoption of AFP stainless is growing (future?)• Quality and function requirements are extremely high.• UV-cured coatings help reduce the “plastic-like” effect of AFPs.• Also: reduction of surface defects, energy consumption, emissions.
UV Curable Textile Finishes: superhydrophobic and oleophobic, side-specific, dual finish treatment of cotton for apparel, home, technical and sport textiles
Cellulose-based materials are one of the most widely used materials provided by nature to mankind. In particular, cotton fibres have been used for millennia to produce clothing items due to its properties such as hydrophilicity and permeability to water vapour. However, increasingly sophisticated uses for cotton-based clothing (e.g.
Using the method of atomic layer deposition (chemical assembly of coatings on the metal surface) for high-performance anti-corrosion coatings of UV-curing
Coil coating - a modern way of applying paint to the metal roller facing materials. Coating process is carried out on automated production lines. The technology was invented in the U.S. 60 years ago. In the production of profiled metal sheets there are practically no competitors.
