Short-Course: The Chemistry of UV/EB - 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Instructor: Susan Bailey, PhD., Brewer Science

Description; This is an introductory course to the basic chemistry of UV/EB curable formulations. Topics covered will include radiation sources, classes of photo-initiators, reactive and non-reactive formulation components, and typical challenges to successful curing systems. Methods for analysis of the cured film and monitoring of the curing progression will be presented. The course is suitable for those with prior undergraduate chemistry course work or similar knowledge from experience.
