- Optical fiber used for telecommunication cables
Miltec has recently worked with the US Department of Energy and Department of Defense to develop a manufacturing process which utilises UV curing technology for lithium-ion batteries, to be used in vehicles and other applications such as power tools and mobile phones.
Over the past 30 years, Miltec UV has developed comprehensive capabilities and a staff of technical experts that provide consulting, training and technical support. Additionally, Miltec has a customer applications laboratory which is open to customers and formulators to work alongside PhD chemists, engineers and UV experts to work towards breakthroughs in testing new processes, cost reduction, and process improvements.
At Miltec’s recent 30th Anniversary Proclamation Presentation, held in Queen Anne’s County, Maryland, the company was awarded three certificates, including the Certificate of Special Recognition from US senator Benjamin L Cardin.
