RadLaunch is a unique idea accelerator for UV+EB start-ups, students, and innovators where we connect selected companies to UV+EB industry leaders through funding, guidance, and speaking/exhibiting opportunities.
Here are the 2019 RadLaunch companies:
- SUNY Albany, SUNY Polytechnic Institute: UV+EB curable Sulfluor, fluorinated hypervalent sulfur-containing polymer cured thin film; extremely hard, thermally robust, and patterns well—may find utility protecting sensor windows, displays, optical fibers, composite material surfaces, electronic devices and other surfaces where scratch resistance, chemical stability and hydrophobicity is important;
- Laval University (Quebec City, Quebec, Canada) within the Forestry Geomatic and Geography Faculty in the Wood and Forest Science Department: Enhances hardness of Canadian hardwood through impregnation of acrylate monomers and electron beam polymerization;
- Origin: Building an open material partner network to power innovation in materials for end use and made through additive mass production. Origin's production system uses programmable photopolymerization (P3) to turn materials into isotropic parts and products ready for end-use;
- MicroMaker3D: A new 3D printer for making the unimaginably small, enabling microfabrication level rapid prototyping for microsensors, wearable technology, IoT devices, micro-robotics, aerospace applications and more;
- Ares Materials: Pylux Polysulfide thermosets, a class of transparent, optically-clear polymeric materials that allow for tuning physical properties to produce materials which tackle multiple applications, specifically engineered for the fast-growing flexible display markets—smartphone makers, displays, and display-related fabrication equipment;
- Daetec, LLC: Protective encapsulant and sealing on-substrate, rapid cure for automotive assembly. Polymer compositing with reactive diluents makes it possible to use CAD fed delivery tools that offer cure on-contact, with robotic operated equipment on vertical, overhead, or irregular surface contours.
The BIG IDEAS conference program will feature conference sessions on 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing, UV LED, Horticulture, Food & Beverage Safety, Data-Driven Materials, and Emerging Technologies. There will also be a general "Big Ideas" session focusing on new applications and enabling technologies in areas like material development, composites, energy storage, low-migration packaging, and PVC chrome replacement.
