RADTECH SETS DATES AND PROGRAM FOR UV.EB WEST 2005

August 2, 2004
RadTech International has announced the dates and program for a new event: uv.eb WEST 2005, a two-day conference and table top exhibition, February 10-11, 2005, at the Renaissance Hotel LAX in Los Angeles. Presentation and demonstrations by leading industry suppliers and users will target the environmental, economic and performance benefits of UV and EB - and how the technology enables manufacturers to meet and exceed regulatory requirements. uv.eb WEST 2005 includes a tabletop exhibit and conference program covering the basics of UV & EB technology; plus, application workshops on aerospace and defense, UV inkjet, wood finishing/building materials, composites, adhesives, electronics, commercial printing/converting, and plastics finishing. In addition, a UV and EB "undergraduate shortcourse" is offered for those interested in the chemistry and science of the technology. UV (ultraviolet) and EB (electron beam) are high value, rapid throughput processes - used to cure (or dry) coatings, inks, adhesives and composites - offering the virtual elimination of emissions and lower energy consumption compared with traditional methods. As a result, manufacturers are increasingly using this safe, fast and efficient pollution prevention technology as the industry continues to grow at over twice the rate of traditional processes.
