EBECRYL® P115

EBECRYL® P115 is a copolymerizable amine used as a hydrogen donor, or photoactivator, in ultraviolet light (UV) curable coatings and inks. When used in formulations in combination with a photosensitizer (e.g. ADDITOL® BP), EBECRYL® P115 provides rapid UV cure response in air by mitigating the effects of oxygen inhibition at the coating or ink surface. It has recommended levels are from 5 to 15% based on the total formulation, usually combined with 3-5% photosensitizer. EBECRYL® P115 is recommended as a reactive co-initiator in the following applications: overprint varnishes, screen and flexo inks, wood topcoats, clear coatings on paper and plastics, and pigmented coatings.
