Sartomer's New Dual-cure Oligomer Enhances Cure and Performance of Coatings

Share Article

The CN9302 oligomer delivers both acrylate and isocyanate functionality. The reactive isocyanate gives UV/EB formulations a secondary cure of shadowed areas with ambient moisture, which results in enhanced coating performance.

These combined features and performance properties make the oligomer excellent for conformal coatings and other high-performance coatings on metal, plastic, and wood surfaces.

To continue providing the coatings market with innovative formulation options, Sartomer Americas (a business unit of Arkema Inc.) announces the release of the new CN9302 dual-cure urethane acrylate oligomer. The CN9302 oligomer delivers both acrylate and isocyanate functionality. The reactive isocyanate gives UV/EB formulations a secondary cure of shadowed areas with ambient moisture, which results in enhanced coating performance.

The CN9302 oligomer can be used in UV/EB-curable, two-part urethane, and dual-cure formulations. It offers low color and low viscosity, while also providing exceptional adhesion and resistance to abrasions and chemicals. Additional benefits of formulating with the CN9302 oligomer include coating toughness and pigment wetting for better distribution in liquids. These combined features and performance properties make the oligomer excellent for conformal coatings and other high-performance coatings on metal, plastic, and wood surfaces. It can also be used to improve the cure and performance of laminating adhesives, pressure-sensitive adhesives, and screen printing inks.
