Photopolymerization initiated by UV light - solutions for polymer coatings industry

Summary of the technology

Photopolymerization initiated by UV light - solutions for polymer coatings industry

Main advantages of its use

  • much higher initiation efficiency, shortening of the photopolymerization induction period and increase of monomers photocure process speed
  • increase the rate of photocurable polymer layer production lines
  • Optical - advantageous properties, so that they can be used as photopolymerization processes photo-sensitizers for many monomers (vinyl, epoxy, acrylates, methacrylates and others)......
  • compatibility with UV LED diodes, which secure process without ozone emission and heat release, which distinguishes them from traditional mercury MPM lamps
  • energy savings through an increase in the production rate
  • proenvironmental thanks to the possibility of running processes using UV-LED panels


  • The technology can be used in the production of polymer coatings curable by ultraviolet radiation (UV) imposed on various types of surface such as aluminum, paper, plastics, wood and metals, mainly in such industries as: printing, paints and varnishes, adhesives and sealants, furniture, automotive and electronics.
