Sartomer at ECS 2015: Unveils Acrylic Polymers and Resins for Coatings and Inks

Published on 2015-04-21. Author : SpecialChem

Sartomer, one of the global suppliers of acrylates and methacrylates, unveils a new generation of high functional resins to boost reactivity, reduce oxygen inhibition on surface, maximize acrylate conversion, and enhance the performance of UV-LED cured inks and coatings. Sartomer is located at ARKEMA booth 328, Hall 4A at European Coatings Show 2015 taking place in Nuremberg, Germany. Also, the company innovates with new specialty acrylates and methacrylates that help maximize the performance of specialty coatings and inks, adhesives and construction chemicals.

UV Curing, a Major Industrial Technology, Offering Unrivaled Benefits to Printing Inks and Coatings

Sartomer presents its latest developments and recommendations to optimize curing rates and performance of the emerging UV-LED curable technology. The company also unveils PRO21615, a new generation of specialty acrylate, to bring superior properties such as soft touch and feel, and CN2306 designed to bring outstanding adhesion and scratch resistance to specialty coatings.

Latest Innovations for Peroxide and Amine Cure Technologies

Visitors to the Sartomer-Arkema booth candiscover the new MCure® 206 and the unique MCure® range, developed to deliver key properties to MMA and 2K epoxy based flooring and waterproofing systems. The most recent product developments to adopt low emission solutions and advanced mechanical properties for construction, adhesives and sealants will also be highlighted.

High Performance Building Blocks for Acrylic Polymer Design

Sartomer is launching ALLYLPEG(M)A, new building block for unique acrylic polymer design, offering a great potential for core shell synthesis.

A Sustained Philosophy

With five new products added to the Sarbio® product line, based on renewable raw materials, Sartomer builds on the groundwork established by the conventional specialty acrylate and methacrylate performances and continuously opens new possibilities to customers to develop innovative formulations with improved carbon footprint.
For several decades, UV curing systems have typically used at least one medium pressure mercury bulb giving broad spectral emissions. These systems were generally designed to obtain the fastest cure speed possible, with productivity gains as the ultimate goal. Today, UV curing is a major industrial technology, offering powerful solutions for printing inks and coating.

As this technology progresses, curing systems based on LEDs are becoming increasingly interesting for end-users. They can offer several cost benefits over traditional UV mercury lamps. As a consequence, LED curing builds on the groundwork established by the conventional UV curing systems and opens new possibilities for high performance radiation curing applications.

Any new technology will always entail new technical requirements to maximize performance. A particular interest with LEDs is improvement in surface cure speed. Once again, Sartomer has lived up to this challenge by developing a new generation of high functional resins to boost reactivity, reduce oxygen inhibition on surface, maximize acrylate conversion, and enhance the performance of UV-LED cured inks and coatings.
