Electron Beam curing (EBC) is one of the most powerful industrial curing technologies commercially available today.
The specialty of EBC is the ability of the EBC to penetrate the surface to fully cure and close the surface of the very thick, multiple acrylic coating layers, which makes it possible for the high chemical resistance surface of ChemTemp Xtreme, characterized by high performance surface finish.
Westlab’s ChemTemp Xtreme utilizes the advantages of the EBC technology with acrylic resin. ChemTemp Xtreme has not a single, but double coating of acrylic combination for better surface performance, reduced VOCs, and low carbon footprint since the EBC process does not produce CO2.
ChemTemp Xtreme EBC surface layer is combined with phenolic treated virgin-pulp kraft paper, processed under high temperature and high pressure to ensure compliance with the EN438 standards for its physical properties. The process requires special calibration to the temperature, pressure, and duration of production. The result is ChemTemp Xtreme with a flat surface, complete with chemical resistance suitable for professional laboratory use.
