Momentive Announces Odor-free Technology for UV Curable Coatings with SilForce Products

Published on 2011-09-30. Author : SpecialChem

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Momentive Performance Materials Inc. announced breakthrough technology that offers the use of odor free UV curable release coatings for sensitive applications where odor may not be acceptable to end users. Featured at Labelexpo Europe 2011 in Brussels, September 28 to October 1, 2011, the new SilForce products can be considered for applications such as tapes on disposable diapers and feminine hygiene products.

"Our innovative polymer and catalyst formulation can help our customers differentiate their products in the marketplace," said Carlos H. Flores, Global Marketing Director, Release Coatings and PSAs, at Momentive Performance Materials. "The new SilForce product line is an excellent candidate for UV coaters to consider when odor-free performance is desired for disposable diaper tapes and other personal care products. Moreover, due to the low temperature cure process, energy cost savings may be possible."

SilForce UV9880C photoinitiator is an odor-free catalyst, produced without the use of organic solvents, for use with Momentive's SilForce low odor UV curable polymers. In addition to odor-free cure, typical performance properties include:

  • Low temperature cure typically needed for thermally sensitive paper and film substrates
  • Rapid photocure in ambient atmosphere
  • General compatibility with medium pressure mercury vapor UV lamps
  • High reactivity
  • Cationic type photocure
  • SilForce UV9800 and SilForce UV9815 silicone release polymers are new products offered for use with SilForce UV9880C photoinitiator for odorless release coating applications. When used with SilForce UV9880C photoinitiator, the odor-free polymers, also manufactured without organic solvents, can provide a number of benefits, including:

  • A rating of 1 on a 1 (none or slight) to 5 (strong) scale used in independent odor panel testing
  • Highly crosslinked coating with minimal silicone transfer
  • Stable release from a wide range of adhesives
  • Lengthy catalyzed bath life when stored in cool, dark conditions
