Ciba will be showing a variety of novel curing solutions at RadTech Europe in Barcelona from October 18-20, 2005, at Stand 22, as well as giving three presentations at the Conference.

In the coatings field, Ciba will be introducing its new UV PlasmaCure™ concept for three-dimensional UV curing, developed in a consortium with Dürr and Roth & Rau. New photoinitiators for coating applications include versatile, easy-to-use Ciba® IRGACURE® 2022 for curing opaque coatings, Ciba® IRGACURE® 2100 liquid photoinitiator with excellent through cure, Ciba® IRGACURE® 127, a unique photonitiator with outstanding cure speed, and Ciba® IRGACURE® 379, which performs exceptionally well in pigmented systems. Two further photoinitiators, which combine high performance with substantial environmental benefits, are Ciba® IRGACURE® 754, a low-odor, low-emission, low-volatility product, and Ciba® IRGACURE® 819DW for waterborne pigmented systems.

UV PlasmaCure™ is designed for three-dimensional UV curing

Ciba® Prime ITTM is a groundbreaking new technology for improving the performance of UV printing inks on plastic through durable modification of the substrate surface. In the inks and imaging sector, Ciba will also be showing two new in-can stabilizers, Ciba® IRGASTAB® UV 10 and Ciba® IRGASTAB® UV 21, alternatives to N-nitrosophenyl hydroxylamine salts.

New solutions for electronic materials include Ciba® IRGACURE® PAG photo acid generators for high-resolution curing in microelectronics and Ciba® IRGACURE® OXE high-performance photoinitiators for displays.
