Ecology Coatings has opened the door to UV-curable coatings that are not only safe to use directly in contact with food for applications such as food packaging, but also can be integrated into multiple applications across the industry, said the company.

Ecology's current line of cutting edge UV-curable EcoQuik(TM) coatings, exhibit superior performance in high moisture environments, provide protection from thermal shock and deliver outstanding resistance to a wide variety of consumer and industrial products. The company's bio-based materials can be used as photoinitiators, co-initiators, film formers and fillers. They are derived from living organisms, not fossil fuels. The company expects accelerated patent approval on its bio-based materials this year.
