UV curing and sol-gel based chemistry: towards nanocomposite coatings in a one step process

Cindy Belon, 2011 RTE Conference

The synthesis of organic-inorganic sol-gel coatings was performed using alkoxysilanes bearing either an epoxy or a methacrylate reactive function. These hybrid materials combine numerous advantages such as good adhesion to substrates, abrasion and chemical resistance.

Structural, morphological and mechanical studies of UV cured organic-inorganic sol-gel based nanocomposite films on polycarbonate

H.Yahyaei, S. Bastani, M. Mohseni, 2011 RTE Conference

Polycarbonate (PC) is one of the most usable thermoplastic engineering plastics because of its high toughness and transparency. However, low crystallinity of PC makes it low scratch resistant, resulting in reduced clarity during its service life.

New Polyester Polyols for Energy Curable Ink Applications

Scott Yin, Michael E. O’Brien and Greg J. Gumina, 2011 RTE Conference

Pigment dispersion resins for energy curable inks require excellent properties for pigment wetting, pigment dispersability and high pigment loading. In this study, two new polyols were developed, acrylated and evaluated in energy curable ink applications.

Low viscous water thinnable urethane acrylates

Dr. Michael Ludewig, Covestro Deutschland AG, 2011 RTE Conference

UV-curing polyurethane dispersions are well established waterborne resin raw materials. Although very versatile in many different applications they have to be synthesised and thus delivered in an excess of water reducing the degree of formulation freedom. In this paper alternative concepts of wat

Effect of photocrosslinking on the thermal stability of UHMWPE films

Deuk-Won Yun and Jinho Jang, 2011 RTE Conference

Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) is a unique high performance polymer with outstanding mechanical properties and low density. However, the critical disadvantage of UHMWPE is its low thermal stability which can be improved by polymer crosslinking.

Real-Time Monitoring of Ultrafast Curing by UV-Radiation and Laser Beams

C. Decker and K. Moussa, 1989 Conference

An original technique, real-time infrared (RTIR) spectroscopy, has been developed to analyse in situ UV curing reactions occurring in a fraction of a second. Cure profiles were directly recorded and the important kinetic parameters were determined quantitatively.
