LS® Light-Sensitive Urethane Acrylates

Aliphatic and aromatic urethane acrylates with photoinitiator grafted into the oligomer backbone. These custom oligomers can incorporate a variety of different Type I photoinitiators (PIs). Formulations can be designed to produce coatings, adhesives, and inks that exhibit little or no PI fragments and benzaldehyde. These LS® oligomers are suitable for FDA applications.

Water-Dilutable Oligomers

Water dilutable oligomers contain no water, but are infinitely dilutable with water (deionized). A key advantage of water dilutable oligomers is their low viscosity. Dymax’s water-based oligomers exhibit good adhesion to most plastics and wood and have a hydrophilic nature when cured, which results in anti-fogging properties.

Silicone Urethane Acrylates

Silicone urethane acrylates combine the characteristics of silicones and urethanes and possess acrylate functionality for UV/EB curing. These unique oligomers exhibit low shrinkage, hydrophobicity, chemical resistance, and higher temperature capability, making them ideally suited for producing films that are compounded for flexible systems, as well as hard coats.
