ADDITOL® ITX

ADDITOL® ITX is used as a radical photoinitiator in UV inks and coatings. In combination with amine co-initiators or alpha cleavage photoinitiators, ADDITOL® ITX is used in formulations containing unsaturated materials such as acrylates, methacrylates, vinyls and unsaturated polyesters. With exposure to UV light, ADDITOL® ITX undergoes a photochemical reaction that generates radicals. These radicals will initiate polymerization through the unsaturated groups present in the system. ADDITOL® ITX is particularly suited to the curing of inks and pigmented coatings. In combinations with tertiary amine co-initiators such as EBECRYL® P104, EBECRYL® P115, EBECRYL® 7100 or MDEA, ADDITOL® ITX provides good through cure along with surface cure. ADDITOL® ITX is also effective as a sensitizer for alpha cleavage photoinitiators such as ADDITOL® DMMTA.
