EBECRYL® 118 is an aromatic monofunctional acrylate that can be used as a reactive diluent in ultraviolet light (UV) or electron beam (EB) curing formulations. It is a good diluent for a variety of acrylated oligomers. In formulations, it can lower Tg and increase flexibility of the UV/EB cured polymer while maintaining strength and toughness and improve substrate adhesion.
