The U.S. Plastics Pact looks to define problematic or unnecessary packaging, working toward the increased use of reusable, recyclable, or compostable materials.
December 28, 2020
The UV+EB Technology Association has joined the U.S. Plastics Pact, a collaborative, solutions-driven initiative intended to drive significant systems change to create a path forward toward a circular economy for plastics in the U.S. by 2025.
One of the most popular solutions for utilizing adhesives, coatings, polymers, and resins in green manufacturing without resorting to solutions that require time or heat to cure/dry involves using ultraviolet (UV) radiation and a material that is capable of utilizing its energy to provide for a fast, on-demand cure.
In addition to Excelitas’ booth at RadTech, Marvin Ruffin, business development manager, will present a session entitled “Preventing Hospital-Acquired Infections with UVC LEDs” during the co-located 2020 IUVA Americas Conference UV for Healthcare Applications Track.

Excelitas Technologies Corp. recently announced that it will highlight its OmniCure LED UV curing systems at RadTech UV+EB 2020, which will be held March 8-11 in Orlando, Fla.
In industrial manufacturing, companies often push the life of capital equipment in the hope of optimizing operational costs by utilizing assets that have long since been paid off. However, when the line goes down and failure ultimately occurs, companies can be left scrambling to secure the necessary replacements to resume production. When direct replacements and spare parts are standard and readily available, this practice is justifiable and cost effective. In cases where replacement items have long lead times or have become obsolete and replaced by technology that is not a drop-in solution, waiting until failure can be disastrous to a company’s bottom line.
New, first-time RadTech conference sessions include Industry 4.0, Exterior Coatings, Dual Cure, and Micro-patterning.
