Way to increase the protective characteristics of anti-corrosion coatings UV-curing paints
Currently, the way the curing of coatings by UV radiation is considered one of the most promising. The advantages of this method are: relatively high performance, low power consumption, small size equipment. However, curing by UV radiation is applicable to a limited number of paints. It is used mainly for obtaining coatings of materi

Water- and oil-repellent finish of PET fabrics using UV irradiation
UV-curable water- and oil- repellent finish was carried out to impart one-side repellency to the PET fabrics using a formulation of a UV-active fluorocarbon agent and a water soluble photoinitiator. The aqueous formulation was padded on the PET fabrics and was subsequently UV-cured. The unirradiated side of the cured fabrics was made
VOC Content of Energy Curable Coatings by Static Headspace – FID Gas Chromatographic Analysis
Energy curable coatings possess several advantages over traditional coatings, including having low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) compared to most traditional coatings. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a VOC is any volatile compound of carbon, excluding methane, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide
Visible light photoinitiating systems for laser imaging using pyrromethene dyes
In this paper, a new three-component photoinitiating system based on pyrromethene dyes was shown to exhibit high performance for laser imaging at 532 nm. Pyrromethene dye was used with a reductant coinitiator (Amine) and oxidant coinitiator (Triazine). The initial mechanism of reaction depends on the relative concentration of the oxi
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
