Sartomer at RadTech 2016: to Exhibit its Acrylate Oligomers and UV PUDs

Published on 2016-05-13. Author : SpecialChem

Sartomer Americas, a business unit of Arkema Inc., will exhibit several acrylate oligomer offerings, UV PUDs (CN9500, CN9501) and two dual-cure oligomers (CN9062, CN9302). at this year’s RadTech technology expo. The event takes place May 16 to 18 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare hotel in Rosemont, IL. The oligomers help coatings and graphic arts formulators significantly enhance cure performance. RadTech attendees can stop by Sartomer’s booth 501 during the show to learn more about the six specialty acrylate oligomers (CN1000, CN1001, CN1002, CN2910, CN2911, and CN2912) and other developments for the graphic arts market.

Sartomer’s specialty acrylate oligomers provide UV-LED and low-energy curing systems with higher surface cure response, reduced oxygen inhibition, maximized acrylate conversion, and improved cured film properties.

When used in coating and printing systems, these chemistries enable users to expand UV technology to heatsensitive substrates.

RadTech attendees can also learn about Sartomer’s family of BPA-free acrylic oligomers. These oligomers exhibit high gloss, as well as low shrinkage and solvent resistance in coatings, inks, and overprint varnishes.

Formulators may use these to give their applications high gloss, high scratch resistance, and excellent hardness, with confidence that their products do not contain bisphenol A (BPA) or other components listed on the Nestlé Guidance Note on Packaging Inks.

Sartomer will also highlight two UV PUDs (CN9500, CN9501) and two dual-cure oligomers (CN9062, CN9302). The UV PUDs contribute hardness and abrasion resistance without being brittle. They also create a warm appearance on wood and are easily matted to a low-gloss finish. Dual-cure oligomers impart specific resistance and curing properties, such as weatherability and toughness. Both of these technologies have utility in adhesives, coatings, electronics, and inks.

Sartomer will also be highlighting CN6500, CN6501, and CN6502 soft touch acrylate oligomers. Soft touch acrylates give UV-cured coatings the high-end luxurious feel and appearance of a rubbery, velvety or silky surface. Common applications include automotive, aerospace, consumer electronics, luxury packaging, handheld appliances, and printing special effects.

Attendees can learn more about soft touch coating technology during this presentation:
