Using Con-focus RAMAN method to analyze Double Bond Conversion at top 1 micron of Optical Functional Hard Coatings

Stephenson
Double Bond Conversion (DBC) is an important indication of degree of cure (Photo-polymerization), which has a direct relationship with most of the physical properties of cured films, such as surface scratch resistance, surface tacky, double bond residue, and adhesion.

A new class of multifunctional aromatic amine synergists

Harling
Amine synergists are an intrinsic part of most radiation curable formulations that rely upon radical species to bring about polymerisation. They have two potential roles to play in the polymerisation process. One important role is as a co-initiator when used with ketones, usually aromatic ketones.

Novel Pigment Stabilizing Dendritic Oligomers

Baro
There are three main stages for dispersion of pigments in paint, ink or coating solutions; pigment wetting, grinding, and stabilization of pigments suspension. During the initial pigment wetting stage, the moisture on the surface of pigments and air trapped within pigment agglomerates.

Polyurethane itaconates - A new class of UV-curing Binder

S. Friebel

Polyurethane acrylates belong to the high-performance UV coatings class. The polymer backbone is polyether, polyester or polycarbonate. By adding isocyanates and hydroxy acrylates at the polymer backbone the resulting polyurethane acrylate binder can be crosslinked via their acryloyl groups.
