High-Performance Oligomer and Coating Solutions

Dymax Oligomers & Coatings, formerly Bomar Specialties, Inc., manufacturers advanced performance materials for energy (UV/EB), light, and other free-radical cure applications. With extensive experience in the development of proprietary oligomer technology tailored for specific applications and precise performance requirements, we provide unmatched technical knowledge of acrylate and urethane chemistry.

We offer a full line of aliphatic and aromatic urethane, polyether urethane, and polyester urethane acrylates and methacrylates, with a strong emphasis on new product development. Our technical team excels in designing and synthesizing previously unheard of materials, such as dendritic polyester acrylates and methacrylates, and LS® (light sensitive) self-initiating oligomers. Dymax products, many of which are "industry exclusive" oligomers, are utilized in numerous energy-cure applications worldwide.

In addition to neat oligomers, we offer:

  • Diluted and partially formulated mixtures of performance oligomers with specialty monomers and other performance additives
  • Toll and custom manufacture of formulated coatings and systems
  • Proprietary Dymax in-house formulated coatings solutions

New White Paper! New Developments in Acrylate Oligomers for 3D Printing

With the widespread adoption of 3D printing for rapid manufacturing, the need for materials with a wider variety of physical properties has grown drastically. Rigid materials, with high tensile strength and low elongation, are readily available, but offerings of tough, flexible materials with high elongation are more limited. This paper discusses the challenges of formulating light-curable 3D printing resins and studies whether new free-radical-curing acrylate and hybrid formulations could overcome those challenges.
