UV-curable polymeric materials

Home > News > UV-curable polymeric materials

The petroleum-based products and the resulting negative impact on the environment, plus the scarcity of nonrenewable resources, are just a few of many factors that have encouraged the scientific community to find more sustainable and environmentally responsible solutions for these problems. Radiation curable applications have been recognized as an innovative and sustainable technology since this technique combines number of advantages such as low energy consumption, less environmental pollution, and very rapid curing even at ambient temperatures.

Dr. Tülay İnan will talk about UV-curable polymeric materials applications mainly on coatings and intraocular lens applications - cataract lens (IOL) produced using this method.

The Nano Open Webinar will take place at 11:00-12:00 on Wednesday, May 11 on Zoom. The online event link will be shared via e-mail on the day of the event. The registration link is below. otolab.sabanciuniv.edu
