Photo initiator and Radiation Curing Specialties


Susan E Bailey, IGM Resins

Radiation curing technology continues to evolve as do the materials available for formulation design.  New materials and formulation strategies have been developed that are optimized for new LED technology as well as high performance coating requirements.  Examples of photo initiator design for high efficiency with low visible signature will be discussed. Future directions for the technology will be driven by continuing technology improvements in the equipment and performance requirements by the customer.
