New manual covers curing by radiation
Radiation curing of coatings, adhesives, inks and sealants is the focus of a new publication titled Manual 45, Radiation Curing of Coatings. The manual is published by ASTM International, developer of standards development and delivery systems.
The book, which covers printing and graphic arts as well as other applications, is a resource for scientists and technicians as well as for marketers and managers who wish to broaden their knowledge of the field. It relies on written explanations rather than numerous figures and tables, and attempts to offer impartial and objective perspectives.
A companion publication, ASTM Standards Related to Testing of Radiation Cured Coatings, is available in printed or CD-ROM format.
