BASF broadens portfolio of UV resins to include standard epoxy acrylates
- Five new products of the Laromer® EA brand for radiation curable coatings and printing inks
- High-performance UV resins with a special degree of hardness, high reactivity and very good chemical resistance
- BASF is to present these and other product innovations at the European Coatings Show 2017
BASF is broadening its portfolio of UV resins to include five new standard epoxy acrylates from the Laromer® EA product family. The binders are used for UV-curable coatings for the furniture and flooring industry as well as for overprint varnishes and printing inks. They are characterized by high reactivity and chemical resistance and make coatings and printing inks particularly durable. BASF is going to present these products as well as other innovations at its booth 523 in hall 7A at the European Coatings Show 2017, which will take place in Nuremberg from April 4 to 6, 2017.
“With the new UV resins we continue to focus on radiation-curing technologies and offer our customers an even broader range of products for the formulation of coatings and printing inks,” says Ulf Neidlein, Vice President, who is responsible for BASF’s resin and additive business in Europe. To meet the increasing demand for UV acrylates, BASF had announced its expansion of existing production facilities in Europe in June 2016.
The five new UV resins include:
- Laromer® EA 9138 (75% standard epoxy acrylate in 25% TPGDA)
- Laromer® EA 9143 (75% standard epoxy acrylate in 25% GPTA)
- Laromer® EA 9124 (80% standard epoxy acrylate in 20% HDDA)
- Laromer® EA 9082 (70% standard epoxy acrylate in 30% TPGDA)
- Laromer® EA 9145 (70% standard epoxy acrylate in 30% DPGDA)
