New UV 'Premium Release System
Cationic Radiation curable silicones have been complemented by additional silicones in order to achieve special needs such as very low and stable release in front of agressive adhesives. We have developed epoxy silicone polymers with release values starting very low and increasing slightly with stripping speeds. The new system is targeted for use o
Uv-Curable Acrylic Pressure Sensitive Adhesives Features, Mechanisms, Milestones
Although UV curing of acrylic pressure sensitive adhesives is known for more than 30 years, theinterest has grown rapidly in the last years 1]. The challenge to develop adhesive coatings free from organic solvents, while retaining the performance properties of solvent-based acrylic, is the major motivation in the concept of UV curing, It has been a
Electron Beam For Controlled, Environmentally Friendly Through-Curing Of Lacquers, Foils And Adhesives
INTRODUCTION2. 1 EBC for the avoidance of solvents and NOxGerman lacquer manufacturers produced 1.55 mio. to (100 %) of lacquers, coatingmaterials and solvents worth DM 7.5 Mrd in 1991(see also table on page 2).The increase in quantity compared with 1990 amounted to 8.3 %.From them 67.100 to (4,3 %) were apportioned to environmentally friendly elec
Formulation Strategies For Uv Curable Adhesives. Photoinitiator And Light, Intensity Considerations
UV curable adhesives have enjoyed relatively rapid commercialgrowth within the last 10 years. Nevertheless, they typicallyconstitute a relatively small share of most marketareas, a situation which signifies that potential advantages are perceivednot to overcome their limitations. Recently, the strategy ofutilizing auxiliary dark cure processes to s
