Elucidating Reaction Mechanisms of Photoinitiators by Magnetic Resonance
Photoinitiators (PI) are a very important part in a light curable system. They have a biginfluence on the performance and the economy of the reaction as they influence the usablewavelength, curing rate, double bond conversion, as well as polymer properties. Initiatorseither directly absorb a photon and form radicals (type I) or work as a bimolecula

Latest Development in Energy Curable Resins for Hardcoat Application
Energy curing of acrylated resins is a well established coating technology gaining further market acceptance for the protection and decoration of surfaces in many applications like furniture, flooring, construction, printing inks and others. Compared to conventional thermally-cured coatings, energy cured coatings offer the additional benefits of lo
UV-cured hybrid sol-gel coatings for aeronautical and Direct-To-Metal (DTM) applications
Corrosion protection in the aeronautic industry is a key issue. Nowadays, multilayer coatings are used to protect aeronautical metallic substrates. A typical system contains hexavalent chromium, or chromate, to provide high active corrosion protection, and is made up of three layers applied on a previously prepared surface. However, hexavalent chro
Development of new UV-curable paints for metal using high-throughput technologies
Besides the increase of productivity, the reduction of energy costs and the absence of solvent release, UV technology brings extra added value to metal for specific applications by obtaining a synergy of excellent coating properties like surface hardness, abrasion, chemical and corrosion resistance while still allowing the necessary adhesion and fl
