UV-initiated Cationic Curing in Electro and Electronics Applications
UV-initiated cationic curing is a way to create useful materials for coatings, sealings and adhesives in diverse application areas. From the past three decades up to now several special development examples are presented from the field of electronics and electro technology.For optimum results from reactive resin chemistry it is neces
UV curing and sol-gel based chemistry: towards nanocomposite coatings in a one step process
The synthesis of organic-inorganic sol-gel coatings was performed using alkoxysilanes bearing either an epoxy or a methacrylate reactive function. These hybrid materials combine numerous advantages such as good adhesion to substrates, abrasion and chemical resistance. Usually, they are synthesized through the successive conventional
UV cured coatings for household appliances and decorative panels
• AFP-coated stainless steel is a high-end “design” product.• The trend for the adoption of AFP stainless is growing (future?)• Quality and function requirements are extremely high.• UV-cured coatings help reduce the “plastic-like” effect of AFPs.• Also: reduction of surface defects, energy consumption, emissions.
UV Curable Textile Finishes: superhydrophobic and oleophobic, side-specific, dual finish treatment of cotton for apparel, home, technical and sport textiles
Cellulose-based materials are one of the most widely used materials provided by nature to mankind. In particular, cotton fibres have been used for millennia to produce clothing items due to its properties such as hydrophilicity and permeability to water vapour. However, increasingly sophisticated uses for cotton-based clothing (e.g.
Using the method of atomic layer deposition (chemical assembly of coatings on the metal surface) for high-performance anti-corrosion coatings of UV-curing
Coil coating - a modern way of applying paint to the metal roller facing materials. Coating process is carried out on automated production lines. The technology was invented in the U.S. 60 years ago. In the production of profiled metal sheets there are practically no competitors.
Transparent and conductive UV-cured coatings
Graphene, a new class of two-dimensional sp2 carbon nanostructure, holds great promise for potential applications in many technological fields such as optoelectronics. One of the most common preparation method of graphene starts from the oxidation and exfoliation of graphite oxide to graphene oxide (GO). raphene oxide sheets consists
The secrets of matting 100% radiation curable coatings
Over the last years, there have been many publications and presentations dealing with the subject of matting 100% radiation curable coatings.The following presentation was compiled within the scope of a bachelor paper and deals less with the specific statements about potential matting materials and more with the connections between m
Study the curing and mechanical properties of a pigmented UV curable epoxy acrylate system
In this research the effect of the presence of a micro tio2 pigment on the curing behavior and mechanical properties of a UV curable epoxy system was studied. The formulations contained different acrylate monomers with different structures and functionalities. The results showed that there were significant interactions between pigmen
