BETHESDA, Md. — David Diehl, PPG Industries Inc., Pittsburgh, has been elected president-elect of RadTech International North America, the trade association that works to promote the technical, educational and market advancement of ultraviolet (UV)- and electron-beam (EB)-curing processes. Diehl is manager, Corporate Technology Initiatives, at PPG. He will become RadTech president on January 1, 2003, succeeding James Reese of DSM Desotech Inc.

Other officers elected at RadTech’s winter meetings in Orlando, Fla., were Immediate Past President Paul Elias and Treasurer Michael Rose, both of Sartomer Co., and Secretary Leigh Quinn Jr., QureTech.

RadTech also announced the launch of a Plastics Focus Group designed to develop industry programs related to the technical and market promotion of radiation curing of plastic products and coatings for plastics.
