Heat resistant UV cure coatings for optical fibers and other applications are desirable for many uses; monitoring well drilling, under-hood automotive cable applications, and others [1,2].
Metallic nanoparticles have special properties that may allow their use in a number of advanced functional applications.
Since their introduction half a century ago, acrylic PSAs have been successfully applied in many industrial areas.
The inderect rotogravure printing process is well known for industrial application on plastic substrates, for example is used for the production of edges and panels for indoor application.
During resent years the improvement of scratch resistance of UV is an actual topic. High quality parquet coatings but also automative topcoats should be scratch resistant even under heavy strains.
Ultraviolet energy cured coatings have been used for decades in industries as diverse as automotive, electronics, printing, packaging, medical, converting, flooring, furniture and metal pipe and tube.
Nowadays different kinds of products are being used as flooring material. Some classical product groups ave been widely used for centuries; others were developed in more recent times.
this paper describes a section of the work carried out under the Uvitech Project, whitchh was aimed at adressing the inequality found in the printing industry experienced by SME printers over the introductioenof UV curing technology.
Over the past years UV-technology has been adopted by the automotive industry via component
This paper describes the challenges that UV curing inks and coatings still face before they can gain
In the regulatory affairs section, you can find an overview of EU legislation relevant to UV and EB curing technology and our initiatives for the industry.
