SUNY-ESF Expands Radiation Curing Program with New Online "Short-Course"



Published April 22, 2014
The State University of New York College of
Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) is expanding its Radiation
Curing Program (RCP) with the addition of a new short-course in
ultraviolet/electron beam (UV/EB) curing beginning in May 2014. The RCP
is a series of online courses designed for current employees in
radiation-curing-related industries, as well as those preparing to enter
the rapidly growing field, who wish to pursue documented graduate-level
professional development. The new short-course, Principles of Energy
Curing Technologies, is targeted at sales and customer service
representatives, marketing and business managers, and regulatory
agencies in these fields.

UV and EB curing refer to the unique ways in which coatings, inks,
adhesives, composites and other materials may be cured as an alternative
to traditional energy-intensive methods that create harmful emissions.
In short, these processes entail using ultraviolet energy from a UV lamp
or focused beams of electrons to instantly cure or cross-link specially
formulated chemistries, using less energy and costing less than
conventional methods.

The self-paced Principles of Energy Curing Technologies short-course
typically takes 10-15 total hours to complete, although to accommodate
workplace demands, participants will have four weeks to fulfill the
course requirements. Taught by several industry experts, the course will
provide participants with a broad overview of the science, materials,
equipment and processes used in energy curing, the advantages and
disadvantages of using different technologies and equipment,  and also
skills to recommend a high-level course of action when presented with a
problem that may be solved by energy curing technologies.

The RCP, including the new short-course, is supported, in part, by a
U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration H-1B
Technical Skills Training Grant. The inaugural offering of Principles of
Energy Curing Technologies will run from May 19 to June 13. A second
summer offering will run from July 7 to Aug. 1.The State University of New York College of
