Sustainability: Sustainable Technology

For many manufacturers, UV/EB has potential by being a

Faster process:

  • Line speed
  • Cure time
  • Coating optimization

Requiring less:

  • Floor space
  • Work-in-process
  • Energy consumption*
  • Maintenance costs*
  • Capital equipment cost*
  • Quality costs

As a cleaner technology with:

  • No/low volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) 
  • Reduced reporting
  • Improved health and safety

The Economics of Sustainable UV Technology?

Sustainability is the new Green…. and will continue to gain influence in the global marketplace. A major movement is underway—which includes efforts by environmentalists, government agencies, manufacturers, consumers and others—to improve sustainability worldwide.

Development in Low-Voltage EB Curing

Sustainable packaging and the lowest carbon footprint are some of the mandates being required by brand managers and end-users. Recent developments in Electron Beam (EB)-curing equipment provide the required dose to cure at the  highest product speeds and at lowest input power.
