Efficient curing & surface treatment in the healthcare industry

Tailored systems and solutions for the healthcare industry. GMP-compliant process development, professional support and laboratory services for a variety of applications with LED and UV systems. Our services offer optimal support for the implemented systems, for example, for adhesive processes, for low-migration cross-linking of acrylic adhesives with enormously high degrees of cross-linking, for curing hydrogels. IQ, OQ and PQ are already essential components at the development phase for the customised application. Validation services can also be offered on site if required.

UV curing systems for industrial applications and converting
