Electron Beam (EB) Technology
By capitalizing on our formulating expertise and success in UV curable coatings for a variety of applications, Watson Standard has transferred that knowledge into the development and commercialization of EB curable coatings products into both the Rigid Metal Packaging and Flexible Packaging & Graphic Arts market segments. In fact, Watson Standard pioneered the first EB cured coatings commercialized for steel pails in the entire packaging industry.
EB Technology offers the ability to formulate products to our customers’ needs without the use of photo-initiators. This allows for curing through thick films of either clear or pigmented coatings and running at very high line speeds.
