Analyzing Consumption of BPh as a Function of Film Depth and UV light Intensity (I0)
The influence of UV light intensity (I0) on Benzophenone (BPh) photo decomposition at different depths of UV cured films was studied using a new approach that is a combination of the traditional UV spectra analysis and statistical calculation. UV absorption of a UV curable formulation is a function of Photo initiator concentration [P
Advancements in UV LED technology and its impact on UV curing applications
Over the past few years, UV LED technology has emerged as a viable option for some UV curing applications. An LED-based UV curing system could offer substantial benefits due to its semiconductor-platform, such as, instant on-off, Hg free, longer life, lower cost of ownership, etc. However, proper combination of irradiance & wavel

Conference package: RTE Conference 2011
This package contains all the presentations that were given at the RTE Conference 2009, held from 18 - 20 October 2011 in Basel, Switzerland.The theme of this conference was UV/EB – Green Technology for Innovation!
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
Seminar Package; RTE Metal Coatings Seminar 2011
This package contains all the presentations that were given at the RTE Metal Coatings Seminar 2011, held at OCAS N.V. in Belgium. While UV & EB technology is already used in a wide variety and increasing number of industrial segments, RadTech-Europe envisions UV/EB technology to gain a still broader acceptance throughout the European Industry.
Improving the value of steel through UV curable coatings
UV coatings on metal:Pilot / industrial trials: Industrial trials on coil-coating lineMetallic substrates and surface preparation: Surface chemistry and wettability vs Roughness and degreasing of galvanized steel & Corrosion resistance vs cleaning of hot rolled steel pipesFormulation and UV curing: High Throughput Exper
Gloss Control Method Using Lamination Film
An outline of the advantages of EB curing compared to conventional coil coating lines and new low energy EB equipment which has been engineered specifically for coil coating applications. An EB pilot line testing was used to demonstrate the feasibility of the technology.
