Photopolymerization Conference to Highlight Research, Achievements

UV+EB Technology

Photopolymerization Fundamentals 2017 (Sept. 17-20 in Boulder, Colorado) will bring together academic and industrial leaders in the photopolymerization field to address critical and fundamental questions related to photopolymerization.

Attendees will learn about recent research and results from leaders in the photo polymerizations field. Dialog is encouraged between academic and industrial scientists in this rapidly expanding area; therefore, time will be allotted during each presentation for question and answers, as well as audience discussion.
