UV LED in Narrow Web Webinar

Thursday, November 07, 2019
02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

UV LED technology has become a viable narrow web curing option. This reflects ten-years of steadily growing market share and collaborative industry activity among converters and suppliers.

While most narrow web converters are now aware of UV LED technology and are specifically requesting that it be included as an option in new press and curing system upgrade proposals, many remain uncertain as to how and when UV LED technology should be used. The result is that while some converters are embracing 100% LED, others lack the confidence which comes with direct personal use and remain loyal to conventional mercury technology. Splitting the difference are converters who opt for hybrid curing solutions that allow mercury-arc and LED systems to run interchangeably at each station, thus enabling converters to have a more controlled transition to UV LED.

Join Jake Staples and Jennifer Heathcote, two subject matter experts in UV LED curable materials and curing systems, for an in-depth webinar. Topics to be covered include developments in UV LED curing systems, coatings, and adhesives; improvements in migration and sustainability; coating and adhesive applications where UV LED technology is preferable and/or advancing, and recommendations on how converters can engage with suppliers and drive development for narrow web processes. The material is meant to assist converters in making sense of UV LED technology as they pursue improved top and bottom-line business results. This webinar is intended for narrow web converters familiar with UV LED technology and contemplating a UV LED purchase or seeking to develop new UV LED solutions for specific product applications.
