Introduction to Design of Experiments for UV/EB Scientists and Engineers

Dr. Allan Guymon, University of Iowa

January 28, 2016

Webinar Description:

Design of Experiments (DOE) is a powerful technique that allows the maximum amount of information to be obtained by performing the minimum number of experiments. For those in production, product design, or quality control, knowledge of DOE can dramatically enhance effectiveness in solving problems and optimizing systems. Most experiments not based on DOE concepts, are two-dimensional, i.e. one variable is changed while a response is measured. DOE, on the other hand, varies all of the important variables simultaneously and systematically, thereby examining the response(s) in many dimensions. The webinar will introduce the topic of DOE with particular focus on its value for those in the radiation curing industry.

The Cure for the Common Design: Using Specialty Effects to Enhance your Shelf Appeals

Helen Rallis, Field Product Manager - Coatings, Sun Chemical Corporation

October 15, 2015

Webinar Description:

Brand owners are always striving to find new ways to differentiate their product. One of the ways to do this is to enhance the shelf appeal of the packaging. According to a study by the Point of Purchase Advertising Industry (POPAI), 70 percent of the packages that are picked up and handled by a consumer are purchased. So, the key is to attract the consumer's attention.

People are more interested in something when they are emotionally invested. Studies show that you can invoke feeling through engagement of the senses. the more senses you interact with, the more involved a customer feels. the use of specialty effect inks and coatings can engage the sense and provide a unique product that can stand out amongst the sea of competitors in the store.

This webinar will review how to transform packaging with UV coatings. Key focus of this webinar will review the type of effect you can achieve with coatings on press to provide a lasting impression. We will also explore the potential need for investment in equipment. This webinar will review how to transform packaging in a realistic print setting.

UV-Curing as an Innovation Platform

Alan Jacobsen, Founder, Light Insoles

May 13, 2015

Webinar Description:

Advancements in UV-curing technology, such as the development of new photoinitiators, new monomers and oligomers, and new UV sources, has expanded its use over the last few decades. However, outside of stereolithography and some of the other 3D printing techniques, UV-curing has mostly been utilized for coatings, adhesives, and other thin-film, non-structural applications.

The unique characteristics of UV-curing provide ample opportunities to expand this technology into new application space, particularly applications that can benefit from mass customization. In this talk, I will provide two examples where UV-curing has enabled new manufacturing processes that are targeting non-traditional applications, such as sandwich structure cores, helmet pads, and footwear.

1K UV-A Automotive Refinish; Clear Coats and Primers

Michael Dvorchak, Allnex USA, Inc.

January 29, 2015

Webinar Description:

Over the last decade the automotive refinish industry has been forced to look at new technologies to reduce volatile organic content (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) while providing a rapid return to service of the consumer’s vehicles. UV A cured 1 K auto refinish primers were first introduced in the middle 1990’s. UV-A Clear Coats were subsequently introduced in the late 1990’s. Materials have continued to be developed and pushed to mimic the classic 2K solvent based polyurethanes (PURs); however, slow acceptance by the auto refinish market over the last decade is indicative of a market that is difficult to change. RADTECH, in conjunction with I-CAR, an industrial training organization for the collision repair professional, developed a web based training module for UV-A Cure 1 K auto refinishing. Over 900 of these module courses have been purchased from I-CAR by the collision repair professional since 2008.

This webinar will review the past history of the UV-A cured 1K auto refinish market and formulations for primers and clear coats. It will also attempt to look at current UV-A cured 1K auto refinish primers and clear coats in the NAFTA market as well as new formulations and new developments in UVA equipment.

Light Curable Adhesives for Automotive and Electronic Applications and the Benefits of Surface Treatments

Brian Betty, Delo Industrial Adhesives
Jeff Leighty, Plasmatreat
Paul Mills, UV Industry Consultant

April 24, 2014
Webinar Description:

As pointed out in a 2012 Radtech Report article (UV Light-Curing Adhesives for Increased Productivity) by DELO Industrial Adhesives, UV curing improves the quality, safety and reliability of sealing and bonding applications. For automotive component manufacturers, and for the assembly of delicate electronics such as graphic displays, fast, low temperature polymerization has enabled many applications that may have been impossible with thermal cure technology.

However, like all adhesives, UV chemistries can also present challenges when it comes to achieving adhesion to some particularly difficult plastic substrates. Recently, engineers have found that these bonding problems can be overcome using atmospheric plasma treatment to clean and activate the part surface.

This webinar will explore the most recent advances in UV curing adhesives technology and the use of atmospheric plasma surface treatment to ensure adequate adhesion when necessary. Examples from automotive and electronics applications will be presented with guidance on proper adhesive selection, process development and testing.

This webinar is particularly well suited for end-users of adhesives and sealants for a wide range of demanding applications, as well as suppliers of related technology.
DELO Industrial Adhesives was singled out for a Radtech Europe innovation award in 2007, 2009 and again in 2011 for their leadership in engineering UV light curable adhesives, and in particular for use in flexible electronics. Plasmatreat is a global supplier of surface treatment products for a wide range of industrial, medical, automotive and electronic applications.

UV Curing Technology: A Route to Solvent-Free Adhesives and Coatings

Dr. Stephen Cantor, Dymax

*Presented by the CNY Section of the American Chemical Society, in conjunction with SUNY-ESF and RadTech International North America

April 9, 2014 6:30 PM EST

Webinar Description:

Have you ever had a chip in your windshield repaired? Have you ever noticed the coating on a computer board or on a book jacket? How does the metal needle used in a syringe bond to the plastic hub or how do you attach a glass base to a goblet to form a wine glass? The answer is the use of ultraviolet/visible technology which requires no solvents and is the “greenest” way to produce adhesive bonds and coatings. Stephen Cantor’s presentation of this technology is useful to engineers, chemists, and artists. His lecture will describe the chemistry and processes involved.

Stephen Cantor holds a B.S. from Queens College and earned a Ph.D. from the University of Rochester in 1964. He received numerous patents during his career in researching and developing high temperature fibers and coatings. Cantor has worked for the Research Center of U.S. Rubber, the Medical Products Division of American Cyanamid; Pfaltz & Bauer; Dymax Corp. Cantor is a renowned lecturer who has served as an adjunct professor at several universities. He retired in 2011 and remains a consultant for Dymax.
