The report gives results of a study to investigate and identify the technical, educational, and economic barriers to the use and implementation of radiation-cured and hot melt coatings in coated and laminated substrate manufacturing. The report identifies work areas that could help overcome identified technical, educational, and economic barriers. The discussed opportunities include: (1) convening a focus group to discuss identified barriers, identify other barriers, and begin the process to overcome these carriers; (2) investigating the use of radiation-curable systems in Europe; (3) researching the marketing difficulties associated with nonsolvent-based products; and (4) investigating state economic incentive programs to determine if financial assistance can be given to manufacturing facilities to help encourage the testing of radiation-curable adhesives.
