Currently, the way the curing of coatings by UV radiation is considered one of the most promising. The advantages of this method are: relatively high performance, low power consumption, small size equipment. However, curing by UV radiation is applicable to a limited number of paints.
The use of UV/EB technology in developing applications such as photovoltaic and flat panel displays demands improved properties in key application parameters such as moisture vapour transmission. Molecular weight, acrylate functionality, solubility parameter and resin backbone have all a direct i
The curing behavior of a Urethane-Acrylate UV curable Resin which had been diluted by three monomers (HDDA, TMPTA and DIPEPA), has been studied. Two ClearCoat formulations with different monomer compositions were prepared and cured.
The advantages and performance properties of Electron Beam (EB) curable laminating adhesives have been previously ° The most significant advantage is that full bonding is achieved instantly upon EB irradiation. This allows immediate slitting, shipping, heat sealing, and filling of the package.
Urethane acrylates offer an excellent property profile as binders for UV curable coatings. They combine toughness, chemical and abrasion resistance with flexibility and, for the aliphatic types, with outdoor resistance as well.
