EBECRYL® 452

EBECRYL® 452 is a low viscosity polyester acrylate oligomer. Because of the chemical structure of the backbone of this molecule it gives exceptional pigment wetting properties. This combined with the low viscosity of this material (typically 600 mPa.s at 25°C) makes it ideal as a pigment grinding resin. EBECRYL® 452 also gives a fast cure response when formulated with other oligomers and cured via ultraviolet light (UV) or electron beam (EB). EBECRYL® 452 is used for the preparation of high pigment loading pigment pastes produced using a triple roll mill or bead mill. EBECRYL® 452 can be used for grinding all process colours and spot colours.
