Xavier Drujon, Technical Service & Development Manager Industrial Coatings, Sartomer Europe, will deliver a presentation on Thermoplastic Film Enhancement via Crosslinking Chemistry and Electron Beam Irradiation at the 35th Annual Meeting of the Polymer Processing Society in Izmir, Turkey. The session is scheduled for Monday, May 27 at 11:40 a.m.

Dr. Drujon will demonstrate how the properties of thermoplastic materials can be further enhanced through the incorporation of (meth)acrylate chemistry. Introducing (meth)acrylate coagents into the thermoplastic resins allows for greater crosslinking density at lower energy dosages. This translates directly to improved properties at higher line speeds. In particular, he will focus on mechanical, thermal and surface property enhancements of films via EB curing. This technology also allows for down gauging in film applications. Moreover, it can be easily applied to any thermoplastic material, application or process.

Thank you to Sartomer’s Chris Orilall, Mike Bailey, and Christopher MacNeill for their contribution and support of the project.


Date: Monday, May 27 
Time:11:40 A.M.
