Please join us in Miami for the 2018 Annual Winter Meeting. We are planning exciting meetings and continuing new initiatives in our UV LED, 3D Printing, Industrial Coatings, Application Support, Transportation, and Printing & Packaging focus groups.
In addition to our regular meetings and networking opportunities, RadTech is welcoming two special guests to Miami to explore new opportunities to advance UV+EB:
Our partnership with UVFoodSafe will be discussed with Tasha Ventimiglia from Tarsus/LabelExpo, as we work to develop initiatives to promote UV as part of this new European initiative. Plus John Standish, Technical Director of The Association of Plastic Recyclers, will present an overview of current UV+EB recycling considerations, and we will discuss possible research opportunities to demonstrate the recyclability of our materials.
