RadTech, the association for UV and EB technologies, has announced the formation of a new committee devoted to fast-emerging UV LED technology. The group’s first meeting is scheduled for Thursday, February 28, in Redondo Beach, CA, USA, co-located with the industry trade event, uv.eb WEST.
“UV LED technology has the potential to play an essential role in radiation curing industrial applications,” says Beth Rundlett of DSM and committee co-chair. “RadTech’s technical efforts will further promote UV LED development and it's full integration into everyday industrial processes.”
JoAnn Arceneaux of Cytec, and committee co-chair, adds, “Recognizing the growth of UV LED curing, its use in new applications, and the need for credible information on its benefits and limitations, RadTech has established a committee to address the needs of its membership in this area. One of the committee’s first actions will be to survey the membership in order to identify those needs.”
Those interested in participating in the upcoming survey are encouraged to contact RadTech. Details and registration information about the RadTech Winter Annual Meeting are available on the organization's website.
