Acrylate monomers provide an environmentally friendly alternative to solvent.
Acrylate monomers can replace solvent in UV/EB curable formulations to provide the unique advantage of environmentally friendly, high to 100% solids, low VOC solutions. The choice of acrylate monomers vary in functionality including monofunctional, difunctional, trifunctional and higher functionality; by chemical structures including linear to branched, aliphatic to aromatic; and by many other chemical attributes to deliver high performing solutions that solve many application and performance challenges.
More specialized monomers include ethoxylated and propoxylated monomers can provide increased molecular weights and deliver improved flexibility, better cure speed and lower skin irritation.
From soft to hard, flexible to rigid, or environmental resistance, and many combinations of properties in between, acrylate monomers influence both the liquid properties and cured film properties to customize the solution.
allnex acrylate monomers are well suited for all UV/EB cure applications. With choice of monofunctional, di-functional or tri-functional and higher, these products are easy to use and can be combined in number of ways to customize the solution that best meets your application needs.
