Bethesda, MD (January 24, 2017) RadTech, The Association for UV&EB Technology, has opened a new area on its website www.RadTech.org devoted to educating printers about the use of ultraviolet (UV) and electron beam (EB) technologies. The Radtech UV+EB Resource Guide for Printers is a compilation of more than 50 articles, archived webinars and fact sheets developed by industry experts and specific to the use of UV/EB technology in printing. The guide was developed to better inform new and existing users in the printing industry who would like to learn more about the technology and how it can benefit their operations.
The guide, located at http://www.radtech.org/uv-eb-resource-guide-for-printers, has nearly 20 categories of information. It includes an overview and introduction; sections for all print processes (flexography, lithography, grauvre, digital and screen); and areas that focus on applications, curing, equipment, LED, food packaging, radiometry, regulatory benefits, RFID and sustainability.
RadTech will continually update the guide with new information. To keep the site as relevant as possible, RadTech encourages visitors to provide feedback. This can be done on the main page or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
