Silicone release coated papers and films provide "easy release" surfaces for a wide variety of "sticky" applications: label stock, adhesive tapes, personal hygiene products, building and construction materials, protective liners, and many others.
The use of vinyl ethers as reactive diluents for cationically cured UV formulations was one of the key factors in the original development of these systems. The fact that they homopolymerise cationically was of unique advantage in their use as reactive diluents for epoxy oligomers.
In the field of vegetable materials and of the use of radiation process: Cobalt 60, UV or EB, a lot of patents or scientific papers have been published on the possibilities to access at new materials with better properties than the ones of the raw natural

The use of floor covering materials in houses, buildings ... is so common now, that there is a wide variety of these products on the market. There is not only a broad choice in the type of substrate but also in the type of finishing. To choose one of
Cationic UV curing systems used in current industrial applications contain iylsulfonium salts as cationic photoinitiator, with the exception of the epoxysilicone release coating systems which use diaryliodonium salts. Upon irradiation by UV light, these onium salts
Molecular oxygen can be thought of as a diradical. Its singlet state is unstable and quickly converts to the triplet which is molecular oxygen's electronic ground state. This diradical lacks the energy to initaiate polymerizations, and, therefore, is
