The new standard epoxy acrylates of the Laromer EA brand are characterized by high reactivity and chemical resistance.

LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF expands its UV resins portfolio by including five new standard epoxy acrylates from the Laromer EA product family.

The five new UV resins include:

  • Laromer EA 9138 (75 percent standard epoxy acrylate in 25 percent TPGDA)
  • Laromer EA 9143 (75 percent standard epoxy acrylate in 25 percent GPTA)
  • Laromer EA 9124 (80 percent standard epoxy acrylate in 20 percent HDDA)
  • Laromer EA 9082 (70 percent standard epoxy acrylate in 30 percent TPGDA)
  • Laromer EA 9145 (70 percent standard epoxy acrylate in 30 percent DPGDA)

TPGDA refers to tripropylene glycol diacrylate; GPTA, propoxylated glycerol triacrylate; HDDA, hexanediol diacrylate and DPGDA refer to dipropyleneglycol diacrylate.

These binders are used for UV-curable coatings for the furniture and flooring industry as well as for overprint varnishes and printing inks. They are categorised by high reactivity and chemical resistance and make coatings and printing inks particularly durable.

“With the new UV resins, we continue to focus on radiation-curing technologies and offer our customers an even broader range of products for the formulation of coatings and printing inks,” said Ulf Neidlein, vice president, who is responsible for BASF’s resin and additive business in Europe.

“To meet the increasing demand for UV acrylates, BASF had announced its expansion of existing production facilities in Europe in June 2016,” added Neidlein.
