Editor's Memo
ASI Launches Dispensing and Curing Equipment Supplement

This issue of Adhesives & Sealants Industry magazine introduces our supplement on dispensing and curing equipment. Included is a tutorial on equipment to use in dispensing two-component materials, a case history and a comprehensive listing of manufacturers who serve these markets.

Our hats are off to ASI's managing editor, Kristin Johansson, who pulled the listing together. Kristin contacted over 180 companies to cover the 108 companies in the guide. Each company's listing features its physical and Web addresses, phone and fax numbers, and an easy-to-follow chart of the equipment it manufactures.

Our staff has made every effort to collect information from all of the companies in the field. We will work throughout the year to provide any changes or updates on our Web-site version of the listing and in next year's supplement. To include your company in our listing, or to recommend a new category, contact Kristin Johansson at, or call 248-641-0592. To view the listing online, visit

The supplement is appropriately timed to coincide with RADTECH 2002, where we will be exhibiting and distributing this issue. The world's largest UV/EB conference and exhibition will be held April 28 - May 1, 2002, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

According to RADTECH management, UV and EB offer manufacturers a high-value, rapid-throughput curing technology, which reduces energy consumption. UV/EB technology typically provides users a safe, fast, efficient process, combined with very low emissions. As a result, the industry has been growing at better than twice the rate of the traditional processes over the last several years.
