EBECRYL® LED 04 is an acrylated polyamine that can be added as a co-resin to UV curable formulations. EBECRYL® LED 04 – when combined with an appropriate photo initiator system – transforms formulations into UV LED, UVA, or low energy curable systems by providing improved surface cure. In addition, this effect is also seen in high energy cure formulations. The improved surface cure is obtained by mitigating oxygen inhibition of the free radical process and/or by being an amine synergist for Norrish type II photo initiators.\nCoating and inks based on EBECRYL® LED 04 exhibit a low odor after UV or EB curing. Due to its hydrophobic nature EBECRYL® LED 04 can also be used in offset inks applications as a replacement of aminobenzoate synergists.
