New Monomer from Sartomer Improves Weatherability and Elongation in UV/EB-Curable Formulations

Published on 2010-10-22. Author : SpecialChem

EXTON, Pa. -- CD420 is a new UV/EB-curable monomer developed to fit a wide range of applications, including specialty coatings for metals and plastics, inkjet and screen inks, and adhesives. This monofunctional, aliphatic monomer is characterized by low viscosity and low surface tension, which make it a good diluent and substrate wetting agent.

In addition to adhesion promotion, CD420 improves elongation and demonstrates excellent weathering resistance. It is also an effective comonomer that can function as a performance enhancing supplement in formulations containing isobornyl acrylate (IBOA).
