Description

This three day intensive course provides a firm foundation in the chemistry, physics, formulation principles and applications of ultraviolet and electron beam technologies.

The course, which embraces all aspects of radiation curing in surface coatings and other specialist areas, is intended for both newcomers and more experienced personnel from companies involved in or intending to become involved in radiation curing technology - formulators, raw material suppliers, equipment manufacturers and end users.

Requirements

To gain maximum benefit from this course, delegates should have a knowledge of chemistry to at least university entrance standard. However, attendees with a general interest in the production and marketing of radcure coatings have also found the course beneficial.
