Cytec Launches EBECRYL® 891 Resin for UV On-Site Concrete Coatings

Published on 2009-01-29. Author : SpecialChem

Woodland Park, NJ -- Cytec Industries Inc. announced it has launched the EBECRYL® 891 resin, a UV curable acrylate specifically developed for on-site or field applied applications on concrete flooring.

The new modified polyester acrylate provides a good balance of properties required to protect concrete flooring-viscosity, abrasion resistance, and cure speed.

When formulated with Cytec's other EBECRYL UV curable resin systems, more specific properties can also be achieved, including toughness, adhesion, and chemical resistance.

On-site or field applied UV coatings is a fast emerging technology capable of helping manufacturing plants, warehouses, and other facilities meet environmental regulations, decrease downtime, and reduce labor and maintenance costs.

It involves formulating UV curable coatings, and using the new generation of on-site UV curing equipment to apply single or multiple coats which cure instantly, and allow coated surfaces to be put back in service immediately.

The EBECRYL® 891 resin was developed at Cytec's Field Applied Lab, a state-of-the-art laboratory in Smyrna, GA, where scientists are currently working on UV curable solutions for all hard flooring substrates, including wood, vinyl, concrete and tile flooring.
