Published on 2012-04-23. Author : SpecialChem

TORRINGTON, Connecticut -- Bomar Specialties, Inc., a leading innovator of advanced-performance materials for energy (UV/EB), light, and other free radical cure applications, has announced its integration into Dymax Corporation, a leading manufacturer of light-curing adhesives, coatings, and equipment. As a result of the integration, Bomar Specialties will transition to Dymax Oligomers & Coatings and continue to provide innovative solutions to unique energy-cure application challenges.

Dymax Corporation, pioneers of light-cure technology more than 30 years ago, co-founded Bomar Specialties in 1990, enabling the company to achieve a secure source of supply while improving product quality and expanding R&D capabilities. Dymax subsequently acquired 100% ownership of Bomar Specialties in 2001. Bomar, having established itself as a key industry supplier of critical raw materials, strengthened the company's innovative culture and furthered its ability to provide custom solutions to unique production challenges. The Bomar name, long synonymous with that type innovation, will be retained as a Dymax Oligomers & Coatings brand.

Bomar™ oligomers are used to formulate adhesives, coatings, inks and a variety of other products. In addition to their ability to undergo free radical polymerization, these versatile oligomers are the most significant contributor to the physical performance charecteristics of the product inculding flexibility, chemical resistance, hardness, adhesion, and more.

From a full line of commercially available polyether, polyester, polyester urethane acrylate, and multifunctional oligomers, to newly synthesized and select developmental materials, Bomar™ oligomers provide solutions to your most difficult formulation challenges. In addition to neat oligomers, Dymax Oligomers & Coatings offers diluted and partially formulated mixtures of performance oligomers with specialty monomers and other performance additives, toll and custom manufacture of formulated coatings and systems, and proprietary Dymax in-house formulated coating solutions.
