UV e-News
Dear <<Title>> <<Last Name>>
In the history of Energy Curing, RAHN has constantly been able to provide innovative yet pragmatic technical solutions to the challenges and new needs facing our industry. We believe that these solutions help and support our customers
For instance our GENOPOL* polymeric photoinitiators, already developed in the early parts of this 21st century, provided necessary solutions and have now become industry standard for our customers to formulate inks that can be safely printed on food packaging substrates.

Today there are additional and new challenges to solve for the UV industry and RAHN is already actively engaged in providing or looking for new solutions.
For example, the MIRAMER LR3130, which is of high purity and contains very low residual TMPTA, can be a perfect solution for formulators to meet the new regulatory challenge without having to completely reformulate away from ethoxylated TMPTA.

3D printing is another area where the Additive Manufacturing industry is facing new challenges when moving from rapid prototyping to rapid manufacturing. Here too, RAHN has launched new products meeting the specific evolving needs of that industry and will continue to do so.

Finally, one of the greatest challenges of the chemical industry is decarbonization or moving away progressively from fossil fuel feedstocks. Rather than green washing marketing promotions, RAHN has been developing technical and innovative chemistry based on renewable feedstock and already launched the first generation of new oligomers with high content of bio-renewable raw materials. This is only the beginning and based on numerous feedbacks received, we are now working on a second generation that can offer the choice to our customers to formulate products which will support their sustainable goals and consumer aspirations whilst providing the needed performance.

If you are interested to find out more about our innovation pipeline, or our existing products, do not hesitate to contact us.

On behalf of the entire RAHN-Team, we would like to thank you for the good collaboration in 2022 and wish you and your family a peaceful Christmas and a successful start to 2023.

Xavier Marguerettaz
CEO, Vice President EnergyCuring RAHN AG

Social Event, November 4, 2022
The notion of diligent business conduct has always been deeply rooted at all levels of our company. As we have done for 80 years now, we are following a thoughtful and non-dogmatic approach encompassing all aspects of sustainability.
RAHN’s socio-economic impact is assessed annually, goals are defined, actions implemented and the result of such actions are measured and reported in a transparent manner in our sustainability report.
One of the actions planned by our Sustainability Committee was to organize a social event. In addition to supporting the social project, it was also intended to give employees the opportunity to get involved socially, thus promoting cross-divisional cooperation, creating shared experiences and strengthening team spirit. In this way, the employees were given the opportunity to get involved in an unfamiliar environment and to overcome their fears of the unknown.
All facilities supported by the Rahn Foundation were checked for possible opportunities for an assignment. The choice finally fell on the Netz4 association, which the Rahn Foundation already supports with annual donations.

Netz4 has been supporting and accompanying people in challenging life situations for 30 years. The Imbiss54 opens its doors every Friday and offers lunch for disadvantaged people (homeless people, people who are dependent on social welfare, asylum seekers, people with substance dependency or psychological restrictions as well as lonely people) and distribution of food from the Swiss food board.
This is exactly where we as RAHN were allowed to get involved and set up a lunch.  Our employees experienced an incredible day with many touching encounters.

Did you know that we post weekly on LinkedIn? The world of RAHN is informative, interesting and – above all – innovative. Keeping up to date by following us on LinkedIn will mean you never again miss our latest news.
