Radiation curing: update and outlook 
Sandy Morrison,Member of SpecialChem Technical Expert Team 
By way of a change from offering you my speculations on the future of our sector of thecoatings industry, I'd like to share with you the speculations of the industry experts at therecent "Radiation curing: update and outlook" symposium held in Enfield, near London.This one-day event on June 16th was a joint venture between the London Section of OCCA and industry association RadTech Europe.
The symposium was held at thehistoric Royal Chace Hotel in Enfield.Six speakers provided an insight into several leading-edge developments in radiationcuring, showing that new raw materials and systems are breaking down what might oncehave seemed insurmountable barriers to greater market penetration. The wide range of developments on offer is notable - ours is by no means a 'mature' market, and projectionsof continued rapid growth seem more plausible in the light of the information presentedhere.The proceedings were opened by John Bernie, former managing director of PRA, whonoted the rapid growth of radiation curing, but expressed surprise that the industry hadnot made even greater inroads into the coatings market over the last 15 years. The mostoptimistic estimates of future growth suggest that radcure may achieve a 7.5% share of the total coatings market by 2010.
Chairman John Bernie considerssome of the problems of radiationcuring.Bernie concluded by observing that for this sector of the industry, "Legislation is going tobe your driving force - and possibly your best friend".
Professor R Stephen Davidson, who has had a long-standing involvement in radiationcuring, then presented an overview of 'Opportunities for radiation curing'.
Stephen Davidson presented themost wide-ranging paper of the day.
