Schaeffer’s presentation, “Durable Multi-Purpose Protective Coatings,” will be held at 4:00 p.m. today as part of Session 10 – Protective Coatings II. It will examine the use of acrylate functional monomers and oligomers for radiation-curable coatings, offering improved adhesion and excellent coating performance when exposed to extreme environmental conditions.
Bailey’s paper, entitled “The Versatility of Acrylate Modifiers in 2K Amine-Cured Epoxy Coatings,” presents the effects of structure, molecular weight and functionality of acrylate monomers and oligomers on two-component amine-cured epoxy coating performance. The paper will be presented at 2:00 p.m. as part of the product presentation session on Wednesday, May 9.
Products featured at the booth include CN823 Acrylic Oligomer, which offers low shrinkage, adhesion and is hydrophobic; CN9030 Urethane Acrylate Oligomer, which offers flexibility, weatherability and corrosion resistance; CN9060 Aliphatic Urethane Acrylate Oligomer, which is hydrophobic and low odor; SR217 Cycloaliphatic Acrylate Monomer, which offers high Tg, low shrinkage, and is hydrophobic and weatherable; CN9029 Urethane Acrylate Oligomer, which offers hardness, chemical resistance and low odor; CN9031 Urethane Acrylate Oligomer, which offers flexibility, weatherability and corrosion resistance; and CN9062 Dual-Cure Urethane Acrylate Oligomer, which has an OH value of 85 mg KOH/g, offers utility in dual-cure compositions, as well as hardness and chemical resistance.
