ISP to Showcase a Novel Coating Design at ECS 2011

WAYNE, NJ -- Formulating reactive polymer coatings as aqueous solutions that perform well and remain stable under adverse conditions is a major focus of research scientists at International Specialty Products (ISP). At the European Coatings Congress in Nuremberg, Germany, David K. Hood, Ph.D, R & D Manager, Performance Chemicals, Applications and Development, will present a novel coating design based on the crosslinking capability of water-soluble polymers. The author will show the structure and function of these materials in sample coating formulations and discuss their potential in next-generation UV curable coatings.

According to Dr. David Hood, overcoming formulating challenges associated with aqueous-based UV curable coatings has the potential to expand the commercial application of a very desirable product form. "Traditional UV coatings formulations offer very robust and durable coatings performance," he said. "Extending that performance to new, novel UV curable coatings can conceivably change the way inkjet printing systems are made and sold. In our paper called "A Novel UV Coatings Design and Application in Curable, Aqueous Based Inkjet Printing Systems," we will reveal the molecular structure of an uncommon lactamic monomer coupled with strong water soluble polymer and examine its potential in areas such as gloss, film forming, dye fixation properties and print receptivity."

Included in the paper will be a review of current challenges associated with the formulation and production of UV curable coatings and the performance traits of prototype UV curable coatings containing pyrrolidonoethyl methacrylate monomer (HEP-MA) and poly(vinylcaprolactam-co-vinyl pyrrolidone-co-(dimethylamino) ethyl methacrylate), modified with glycidyl methacrylate (VCL/VP/DMAEMA/GMA).
