BETHESDA, MD – RadTech, the Association for UV and EB Technology, is offering an event that explores the continued emergence of UV and EB technologies used in curing applications. The program, The UV/EB Surface Curing Workshop, will take place on September 10, 2015, at the Georgia Power – A Southern Company’s Customer Resource Center (CRC) in Dunwoody, GA, a suburb of Atlanta.
The day’s events tentatively include overviews of UV and EB technologies’ processes, equipment and applications; an analysis of the basics of UV, UV LED and EB chemistry; a comparison of EV- and EB-curable adhesives and which situations warrant using each; and real-world UV and EB user case studies.The workshop will conclude with a series of hands-on radiation technology equipment demonstrations.
A noteworthy aspect of this workshop will be attendees’ opportunity to work with both UV and EB equipment. While UV equipment is relatively common, EB equipment is rarely available to the public. However, EBLab manufacturer COMET Group and BroadBeam™ ebeam systems manufacturer PCT Engineered Systems have coordinated an agreement with Georgia Power that a fully operational ebeam laboratory unit be showcased at the George Power CRC through late 2015. The EBLab is a multifunctional industrial laboratory unit that is equipped with nitrogen inerting for surface curing applications and offers a maximum energy level of 200kV. In addition, Georgia Power has Heraeus Noblelight UV equipment housed permanently in its CRC.
The cost to attend The UV/EB Surface Curing Workshop is $40 per person; though subsidized pricing is available for students and educators interested in learning more about UV and EB technology. For more information or to register, visit www.radtech.org or contact Mickey Fortune at email@example.com.
