SUNY-ESF / RadTech Webinar Series: Radiation Curable Additives Enabling Excellent Paint Surfaces
Monday, April 29, 2013 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (EDT)
SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry’s (SUNY-ESF) Institute for Sustainable Materials and Manufacturing in collaboration with RadTech International North America presents The Future of UV/EB Advanced Manufacturing: Trends, Strategies, and Applications - a monthly webinar series. An archive of past webinars from the series are available at www.esf.edu/outreach/uvebwebinar.
Webinar #6: Radiation Curable Additives Enabling Excellent Paint Surfaces
Presented by Paulo Roberto Vieira Jr, PhD, Cytec
Abstract: Sometimes deviations from the evenness and uniform smoothness of UV/EB cured surfaces may be an indication of an imperfect coating process. Examples of such deviations include orange peel, peaks, craters, fish eyes and pinholes--most are related to variations in surface tension. To prevent or reduce such defects, flow and leveling additives are used. In this webinar we will discuss how appropriate radiation cure formulations with surface tension modifying additives can result in excellent paint surfaces meeting the most demanding customer specifications.
