RadLaunch 2019

Connecting Technology Start-Ups to UV+EB Industry Leaders

A Unique Idea Accelerator for UV+EB Start-ups, Students & Innovators

RadTech, the nonprofit trade association for UV+EB technologies (ultraviolet and electron beam), invites your start-up ideas, concepts and prototypes

New materials, optics, design, printing, packaging, 3D printing, inkjet, building products, plastics, medical, electronics. (and more!)

More Information

WHO ME?

RadLaunch 2019 is for students, start-ups, and anyone with innovative new ideas for UV+EB technology. Evidence of an early prototype, minimal viable product or proof of concept is expected.

WHAT DO I GET?

Cash—at least $1,500 per selected applicant.

An additional travel grant up to $1,500 to attend Big Ideas! For UV+EB, in Redondo Beach, CA, March 19-20, 2019

Free exhibit opportunity at Big Ideas!

Presentation slot and recognition at Big Ideas; write up in UV+EB Technology Magazine; webinar opportunity.

WHAT ARE MY RESPONSIBILITIES?

Develop a video and/or article presenting your concept and prototype work, highlighting the importance of UV+EB technology.

Attend and present at Big Ideas! In Redondo Beach, CA (we provide support); attend RadLaunch events.

Please note: The application deadline is December 15, 2018. Questions? Email us at gary@radtech.org.

Organizations and RadTech members are invited to sponsor RadLaunch:

Sponsors receive recognition on this site and at Big Ideas!, serve on selection committee, get two free tickets and recognition at the Big Ideas! awards dinner.

Congratulations to RadLaunch winners, our class of 2018.

Trio Labs: Rapid UV 3D printing to create metal and ceramic parts with the same characteristics achieved through standard powder injection molding (PIM) processes.

Reboot Medical, Inc.: PhotoCast Casting Tape, light-cured composite tape that hardens on-demand, producing a rigid splint or cast.

Team from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem: Nanocrystal photocatalysts which fill an unmet need for efficient water-soluble photoinitiators for coatings and 2&3D printing.

moi composites: for a new, patented process that merges the performances of thermosetting composite materials with the potentialities of Additive Manufacturing opening the world of advance composites to features today unimaginable.

The Foam Printing Project: Lightweight parts from resin that is foamed using a patent-pending process and solidified using a UV DLP 3D printer, parts have up to 75% gas fractions, are lighter weight and less expensive to produce.

Dynamic Matter LLC: UV curable thermosetting polymer that can be remolded, relax stress, or repurposed following polymerization for use in optical applications and composites to reduce shrinkage and environmental stresses.

Team from the University of Iowa: Transferrable Shadow Cure (TSC) decouples initiation and propagation mechanisms in cationic photopolymerization to address light penetration problems, thus providing full cure regardless of geometry, pigment and filler content, and sensitivity of material to light and heat.
