UV/EB Cured Adhesives Formulation in Practice

On-Demand Course

Recorded on Jun 9, 2021

Make the best of UV/ EB technology to formulate cost-effective adhesives faster as per desired applications (PSA, FR type adhesive, Laminating adhesives…).


With the help of William D. Arendt, you will be able to clarify: 


  • Which technology to select as per material/application: UV or EB? 
  • What raw materials (oligomers, monomers, photoinitiators…) to choose and how? 
  • What are the lab testing methods?

Why should you view this course?

UV/EB Curing is often preferred for Adhesives curing for faster development, environmental benefits, zero emissions etc. But the selection criteria of technology and the raw material (prepolymers, photoinitiators, additives…) for curing is highly dominated by application. And this is the case for each industry i.e. Adhesives, Inks, Coatings.


This calls for specific insight to develop adhesives for your desired purpose . But while there is info available about UV/EB Curing, it is neither consolidated nor adhesive-centric thus steeping the learning curve and adding more time & cost in the production cycle.


So, join our course and:



  1. Easily identify the key attention points by understanding core chemistry and raw materials (oligomers, monomers, photoinitiators…) used in UV/EB technology 
  2. Ease developing UV/ EB cure adhesives by knowing the step-by-step formulation strategy (protocol designing, DOE…) & testing based on the applications 
  3. Significantly reduce development time by learning with real-life examples of uses and selection criteria (PSA​, Hot melt, Flame retarded, Laminating type…) 


Who should view this course?

Formulators, Technical Sales, Marketers, Manufacturers working in Adhesives Industry, and End-Users working with UV/EB Technology.
