EBECRYL 5849 resin is the latest addition to Allnex's portfolio of versatile energy curable polyester acrylates.
The polymer contains a silane crossllnker added to acrylates, forming alkylslloxyl groups in the acrylate copolymers.
In separate vessel, sprinkle the Acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acrylate into the water of phase B with mixing.
Acrylic resins, manufactured by the polymerization of acrylates or methacry-lates, find use in several applications ranging from paints and coatings to automotive and construction.
From the NMR analysis of monomers and copolymers, it is apparent that there is a deficiency of electrons in alkyl acrylates compared with alkyl methacrylates.
Headquartered in The Netherlands, IGM Resins is global specialty chemical company that supplies photo-initiators and acrylates to the UV-curable coatings and inks markets.
It is said to offer lower crosslink density than other highly functional urethane acrylates and is, therefore, said to be more flexible at higher coat weights, according to the company.
This article presents the preparation conditions and mechanical performance of a series of UV-curable hyperbranehed polyurethane acrylates (HBPUA) that are characterized by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, [.
The olefinically unsaturated monomer corresponds to one or more monomers selected from at least one olefinically unsaturated monomer selected from the group consisting of: a) mono- and di-esters of crotonic acid, cinnamic acid, fumaric acid, maleic acid, citraconic acid, and itaconic acid; b) carboxyfunctional monomers; c) N-vinyl caprolactam, vinyl phosphonates, N-vinyl formamides, N-vinyl acetamides, hydroxypropyl acrylates and methacrylates, monoacrylates and monomethacrylates of polyalkylene glycols, acrylates, methacrylates, acrylic acid and methacrylic acid amides containing amine groups; d) vinyl esters corresponding to general formula (I) CH2xCH--O--C(O)--R1, with R1=C11-21.
The inventors indicate many cycloalkenyl acrylates could act as potential oxygen-scavenging comonomers.
While methacrylates will continue to account for the majority of acrylic resins demand, acrylates will record more rapid growth through 2005, the result of the latter's lower level of dependence upon highly cyclical markets, such as transportation equipment and construction.
The Elvaloy AC resin family includes eight ethylene methyl acrylates (EMAs), four ethylene ethyl acrylates (EEAs) and six ethylene butyl acrylates (EBAs).
