Chevy Chase, MD (March 19, 2018) RadTech, the trade association for UV+EB technology, will feature 3D printing innovations, breakthroughs, and technology previews from new start-ups to established equipment and resin suppliers at RadTech 2018, the UV+EB Technology Conference and Expo, May 7-9, 2018 in Chicago, IL.

RadTech 2018 will feature presentations on 3D Printing including material innovations, new tech, formulation, the use of UV LEDs, and hybrid processing. In addition to multiple conference sessions, RadTech 2018 will also feature a panel discussion including Formlabs and Trio-Labs that will address the benefits and needs for the continued development of resin 3D printing, including new materials such as ceramics and metal.

The RadTech RadLaunch initiative to support innovators and start-ups will also offer presentations on exciting, unique, next-gen 3D printing, including composites, metals, and a foam printing project developed for light-weighting applications in aerospace and automotive.

RadTech 2018 begins with optional short courses offering the basics in resin chemistry for new 3D material developers. Also, the Conference includes over 100 adjacent presentations and 80 exhibitors. Learn more about all the 3D printing topics at RadTech 2018 at http://www.radtech2018.com.

Chevy Chase, MD (March 12, 2018) RadLaunch, the new, unique idea accelerator for ultraviolet and electron beam (UV+EB) technology start-ups, students and innovators is pleased to announce our candidates for 2018. If selected as a RadLaunch participant, each company will receive financial support, a travel grant to attend RadTech 2018, and technical, marketing and funding mentorship opportunities.

RadLaunch 2018 Candidates:

Reboot Medical, Inc.
PhotoCast Casting Tape, light-cured composite tape that hardens on-demand, producing a rigid splint or cast.

Team from Eastern Michigan University
“Green” UV-LED curable nail gel polishes from Bio-Renewable Materials.

UltraV Coatings
New, protective floor coatings for instant return-to-service and lasting durability for floor finishes and also directional and safety line striping.

Team from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Nanocrystal photocatalysts which fill an unmet need for efficient water-soluble photoinitiators for coatings and 2&3D printing.

1of23.com
Extend the life of exterior siding coatings, and reduce maintenance costs by pre-treating floors and siding with polymers using UV technology to cure and protect wood from extreme exposure.

Continuous Composites
Continuous Fiber 3D printing creates a moldless, “out of autoclave” composite manufacturing process, embed functional fibers to create a part that can sense and react to stimuli.

LiTeProducts LLC
Flash sanitizer for disinfecting cutting boards, knives, and utensils using environmentally friendly ultraviolet and visible LEDs to enhance Food Safety at the point of preparation.

Mica Corporation
Electron beam water-based primers for flexible packaging systems to create the first "water-based" system used in retort packages with a focus on users of EB digital inks and varnishes.

Trio Labs
Rapid UV 3D printing to create metal and ceramic parts with the same characteristics achieved through standard powder injection molding (PIM) processes.

The Foam Printing Project
Lightweight parts from resin that is foamed using a patent-pending process and solidified using a UV DLP 3D printer, parts have up to 75% gas fractions, are lighter weight and less expensive to produce.

Eaton Chemical, Inc.
UVLED Anticorrosive ID coating for downhole oil/gas pipe, in contrast to baking systems, with significant batching, staging, and handling requirements, system may also be used in-field for repairs, fabrication, and couplings where traditional coatings cannot be cured.

Dynamic Matter LLC
UV curable thermosetting polymer that can be remolded, relax stress, or repurposed following polymerization for use in optical applications and composites to reduce shrinkage and environmental stresses.

Team from the University of Iowa
Transferrable Shadow Cure (TSC) decouples initiation and propagation mechanisms in cationic photopolymerization to address light penetration problems, thus providing full cure regardless of geometry, pigment and filler content, and sensitivity of material to light and heat.

moi composites
A new, patented process that merges the performances of thermosetting composite materials with the potentialities of Additive Manufacturing opening the world of advance composites to features today unimaginable.

The RadLaunch class of 2018 will be presented at RadTech 2018, May 7-9, 2018, Chicago, IL. For more information visit http://www.radtech2018.com.

UV+EB for Food Safety Session Announced at RadTech 2018
Chevy Chase, MD (March 7, 2018) Industry, Government lab, and University experts will discuss the non-thermal disinfection of juice, milk, and tea, as well as the use of UV for process preparation and product packaging solutions at at special session on UV+EB for Food Safety, taking place Monday, May 7, 2018 at the RadTech UV+EB 2018 Conference in Chicago, IL. UV is a proven technology, offering an economically-sound, effective, and versatile dry-process technology, that improves plant and consumer safety and offers the further preservation of different foods as well as extended shelf life. This session, sponsored by the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA), presents the latest updates on the science based validation and commercialization of UV technology for food applications from seed to stomach.

This first of its kind session includes topics related to: Global regulations related to UV for food safety; validation of shelf life extension; and a user’s perspective of UV treatment of beverages. In addition, with the rapid emergence of LEDs, the symposium will address the use of UV LEDs for indoor crop growth simulation, pathogen inactivation, and spoilage reduction; and we will conclude the event with a UV treated cold pressed juice tasting. RadTech 2018 features over 100 presentations and 80 exhibitors, for more information and to register, visit www.radtech2018.com.
