Technical Datasheet | Supplied by allnex
β-CEA (β-carboxyethyl acrylate) by allnex is a mixture of reactive esters, each of which contain both acrylate and carboxylic acid functionality in the same molecule. Because of its carboxylic acid functionality, β-CEA is useful as an adhesion promoter. It is characterized by low odor and moderate viscosity. It exhibits good adhesion to variety of substrates and low glass transition temperature for UV/EB curable formulated products. This grade is recommended for use in overprint varnishes, inks and coatings.
