Abstract The report gives the background of a demonstration project to develop and commercialize the Thor V process to apply and cure an outside, protective/decorative, UV-cured white base coating on flat sheets used for the bodies of three-piece cans. The Thor V process is a single-pass line: the UV white coating is applied and UV-cured to a printable condition; and two conventional inks and a trailing varnish are applied, followed by baking in a gas-fired wicket oven. The conventional process is a two-line operation: one line applies the white coating, followed by the oven bake: the other applies the two inks and varnish, again followed by an oven bake. The Thor V process reduces total line length by 215 ft (65M) and total solvent emissions by about 66%, compared to the conventional process. Elimination of an oven and after-burner also reduces new equipment costs by over $400,000 and saves about 8 million Btu/hr (2 million Cal/hr) in gas consumption. The report also reviews development work to date, describes the Thor V line at a plant in Weirton, West Virginia, and describes work needed to complete the project.
