Photoinitiator-Free Daylight Curing of Maleimide Functional Coatings
In Car Refinnish bodyshops daylight bulbs/UV-A lamps are preferred for obvious safety reasons. These light sources do not expose dangerous irrediation. Recently, a robust daylight curing clearcoat based on isocyanate/thiol chemistry had been launched on the market.
Organometallic Complexes as Initiators for UV Printing Inks
Several arene-iron complexes were tested as photoinitiators for cationic polymerization. The UV light decomposes arene-iconcyclopentadienyl cation selectively to the corresponding aromatic compound and iron cyclopentadiene cation.
Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Coatings Based on Sol-Gel Chemistry and Photopolymerization Process
The improved or unusual features of organic-inorgannic hybrid materials are today well established. They allow the development of innovative industrial applications in mary areas: optics, electronics, biology, medicine...
Novel Photolatent Amines: Expanding the Scope of Photolatent Base Technology
Radiation curing is a well established technology that has enabled a wide variety of applications in coatings, graphic arts and electronic materials. Most applications rely on radically curable formulation, since this process allows a very fast transformation of a liquid high-solid formulation into a cured material at ambient temperature.
Novel Electron Transfer Photoinitiators for Free Radicals Polymerization
Schuster an co-workers discovered that 1.4-disyanonaphthalene solutions containing an alkyltriphenylborate salt, when irradiated, yield one electron oxidation of the alkyltriphenylborate leading to carbon-boron bond clravage and formation of free alkyl radicals.
Novel Acrylated Building Blocks for UV Curable Polyurethane Dispersions
Radiation curable polyurethane dispersions have recently shown increasing and market interest as they axhibit high technical performance together with low viscosity and low VOC without the use of solvents or irritant monomers.
