RadTech Forms New UV LED Group

BETHESDA, MD—January 2, 2013—RadTech-The Association for UV and EB Technologies announces the formation of a new committee devoted to fast emerging UV LED technology. The group’s first meeting is scheduled for Thursday, February 28, 2013, in Redondo Beach, CA, and will be co-located with the industry trade event, uv.eb WEST.

“UV LED technology has the potential to play an essential role in radiation curing industrial applications,” said Beth Rundlett of DSM and committee co-chair. “RadTech’s technical efforts will further promote UV LED development and it’s full integration into everyday industrial processes.”

Recognizing the growth of UV-LED curing, its use in new applications, and the need for credible information on its benefits and limitations, RadTech has established a committee to address the needs of its membership in this area. “One of the committee’s first actions will be to survey the membership in order to identify those needs,” said JoAnn Arceneaux of Cytec and committee co-chair.

Those interested in participating in the upcoming survey should contact RadTech. All are welcome to the first RadTech UV LED meeting, please visit www.radtech.org for details on the RadTech Winter Annual Meeting and to register.
