The week of March 18th I was privileged to attend RadTech’s Big Ideas Conference in Redondo Beach California. In addition to offering a nice reprieve from the Michigan winter, it also provided some keen insight into important things happening in the field of UV. So, for the next few pages, let’s take a look at how UV affects us in our everyday lives.

As the cost of virgin materials continues to increase, packaging recovery has never been as important as it is today. But recovery is also vital from a sustainability and environmental standpoint as well because more and more end consumers are looking for eco-friendly packaging that’s made from recycled materials, that is itself recyclable.

Over the years, it has become clear that sustainability in packaging is a concern that’s here to stay.

So with that in mind, here are eight reasons why the sustainable packaging industry is only going to keep growing.

To start, let me define what I mean by Capital Improvement Project. It is similar to a Capital Equipment Project in that it requires some investment, installation and training but it is typically on a smaller scale.

Disposal of drums of waste paint and coating is a necessary evil for anyone in the industrial coating or finishing business, but is especially true for coil coaters.

Please excuse the trite reference to Stephen Covey! But in this case, there really are seven traits that we see that signify that we are working with a world-class coater. Truly world class coil coaters are identified by their ability to:
1. Provide a high quality surface finish batch-after-batch

If your business depends on processes where fluids are dispensed, whether they be adhesives, sealants, potting compounds, coatings, lubricants, or even just water, you know the importance of control. Control of volume, control of flow rate, control of placement – all have a significant impact on the cost and quality of your output.
