Automotive customization and energy-curable technology are an excellent complimentary pair. On top of its fast cure, energy curing offers excellent chemical resistance that can pass many of the automotive crème standards and can also be tailored to have a wide variety of properties.
These new blue-colored resins have been designed with input from formulators, equipment manufacturers and coating applicators, and as a result meet the needs of this sector for increased ease of application combined with high-performance properties.
Aliphatic urethanes with high acrylate functionality result in cured films having excellent abrasion resistant properties. The family of UV-PUD materials examined offers a higher reactive solid content at a lower viscosity when compared to typical UV-PUDs on the market.
A one-step photoinduced sol-gel and free-radical photopolymerization process was proven to be an efficient process to synthesize hybrid sol-gel coatings with interesting properties, in particular high corrosion protection performance.
By using carefully selected renewable building block monomers, we can design polyester biopolyols with 100% renewable carbon content that can be used to produce high-performance UV-PUDs suitable for use in many coatings applications.
The UV LED Curing Symposium took place September 26 in Rosemont, IL. This event is intended to provide a cost-effective, one-day educational opportunity to learn about one of the fastest growing UV technologies.
Addresses important questions frequently posed by end-user design engineers, coaters, and coatings suppliers in their quest for superior product qualities and shorter product and process development time.
