RadTech Europe (RTE), the industry association supporting UV and EB curing technology, has made a call for entries for its biannual - and 6th edition - of the international 'Innovations Awards'. This call for entries is being addressed to all companies with innovative applications that have been manufactured using UV or EB curable inks, coating or adhesives and/or produced in any printing, manufacturing or construction application that uses radiation curing technology.
The awards competition targets all sectors of the industry and will culminate in an awards ceremony during RadTech Europe's 25th Jubilee Conference and Exhibition on the 16th of October in Basel, Switzerland. The conference and exhibition theme “Growing through Innovation” is built around the future of radiation curing, will examine new and emerging trends and innovations, and take a close look at new applications of UV and EB curing. As such, it is the platform for honouring the innovation award winners of 2013, acknowledging the efforts and investments companies make in bringing the benefits of UV and EB curing on to an even broader raft of application areas.
The previous award winner was DELO Industrial Adhesive in Basel for the development of light-curing, transparent adhesives for display bonding. “The growing demands in display bonding require special adhesives that give good adhesion and transparence, are resistant to chemicals, and reduce the reflections of the display surface," says Dr. Dietmar Dengler, Director Chemistry at DELO. "This award has helped us in bringing this innovative solution to a growing market much faster.”
"RadTech Europe provides winners with a prestigious sales and marketing tool," adds David Helsby, President of RadTech Europe. "A hallmark that signals to customers the winning company's contribution to manufacturing excellence achieved through the use of UV/EB radiation curing technology."
Closing date for entries is 15th September 2013. Entry details can be found at www.radtech-europe.com.
