Acrylated dipentaerythritol (DPHA) is a multifunctional reactive diluent that polymerizes when exposed to sources of free radicals. DPHA is particularly useful in ultraviolet light (UV) and electron beam (EB) curable coatings and inks where improved cure response, hardness and scratch/abrasion resistance are desired. DPHA is composed predominately of the penta- and hexa-acrylate esters of dipentaerythritol, with the overall composition represented by the included chemical structure.
