Why Electron Beam?

COST

EB offers the lowest total cost solution for many different applications, including food packaging printing.  In 2000, ESI introduced breakthrough innovations which significantly reduced both the size and upfront capital cost of EB.  Whether it’s upfront costs, ongoing ink, coating, or adhesive cost, operating and maintenance costs, or waste reduction, EB is the lowest total cost solution for printers and converters worldwide.

QUALITY

EB offers a wider range of physical properties than any other drying or curing technology.  This is primarily due to the highly cross-linked cure of the inks, coatings, and laminating or PSA adhesives.  Higher gloss.  Lower matte finishes.  Better scuff and abrasion resistance.  Better chemical resistance.  Highest heat resistance.  And consistent COF.

SAFE

EB inks, coatings, and laminating adhesives are FDA compliant and safe for food packaging.  EB has been used in food packaging for over 40 years worldwide.  EB chemistries contain NO Odor or Extractables primarily because they contain NO Photoinitiators.  Further, the EB chemistries are not flammable, toxic, or hazardous.

GREEN

EB inks, coatings, and adhesives are 100% solids.  They contain NO VOC’s.  There are no initial regulatory filings or ongoing environmental H&S compliance.  NO worries about VOC’s, explosion proofing, carbon taxes, CO2 emissions or government reporting.  Additionally there is no wasted energy in producing, mixing, shipping, drying, collecting and recovering, or incinerating solvents.  Great for both the environment and the bottom line.
