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.
Our February issue features a simplified method for producing high-performance solvent-free waterborne acrylic polyols with glycidyl neodecanoate technology, the effects of different curing methods on tack-free curing, the science of smart hydrophobic coatings, and more.
