ACTEGA Kelstar joins Electron Beam packaging seminar

ACTEGA Kelstar is to provide insight at the EB Benefits in Packaging seminars that begin later this year. Targeting flexible packaging producers, label printers, folding carton converters and brand owners, this event will provide an overview of EB technology and the impact it is having on the printing, packaging, and converting industries. The event will cover the financial, sustainability and safety ramifications of using electron beam (EB) technology including examples how today’s packagers, materials developers and press manufacturers are adopting their business models to accommodate EB use.
Albert Lin, Ph.D., technical director ACTEGA Kelstar will lead a session on food packaging safety and the ever-changing, strengthening regulations around the globe. Citing the stringent demands that have emerged from food companies like Nestlé to restrict the materials used in their packages Albert will discuss the key factors that are shaping the packaging of tomorrow in addition to the challenges facing the radiation curing chemistry and EB specifically when developing and implementing food packaging innovations.
