Electron Beam Drying (E.B.)
What is Electron Beam (E.B.) Drying?
Electron Beam (E.B.) drying is a method of drying inks and coatings that relies on specially sensitive compounds blended into the ink. These compounds will catalyze polymerization (‘drying’) of the ink or coating when exposed to beams of free electrons which are emitted in a specially constructed drying station.
