Bomar-Oligomere

Bomar® Oligomers

Advanced Performance UV/EB-Curing Oligomers

Used to Formulate Adhesives, Inks, Coatings, and Other Products

Bomar® oligomers are used to formulate adhesives, inks, coatings, and a variety of other products. In addition to their ability to undergo free radical polymerization, these versatile oligomers are the most significant contributor to the physical performance characteristics of the product including flexibility, chemical resistance, hardness, adhesion, and more.

Dymax Oligomers & Coatings has the materials you need to meet the requirements of your unique applications. From a full line of commercially available polyether, polyester urethane acrylate, and multifunctional oligomers to newly synthesized and select developmental materials, Bomar oligomers provide solutions to your most difficult formulation challenges.

UV/EB-Curing Advance Performance Oligomer Chemistries
Dendritic Acrylates

Dendritic Acrylates


Dendritic acrylates mimic the performance of dendrimers, star- or ball-shaped polymers that are built up layer by layer, without all of the cost. Dendritics are more spherical than rod shaped, and because of their spherical shape, they have significantly lower viscosity than typical linear oligomers of comparable molecular weights.

Polyester Urethane Acrylates

Polyester Urethane Acrylates


Polyester urethane acrylates exhibit good adhesion properties to a variety of substrates along with a balance of toughness and flexibility. They have higher viscosities compared to other urethane acrylates, and therefore, require more diluent. Aliphatic polyester urethane acrylates have excellent outdoor durability and UV resistance and provide excellent cured-film characteristics. Applications for aliphatic polyester urethane acrylates include adhesives and coatings where toughness and non-yellowing characteristics are required.

Polyester Urethane Methacrylates

Polyester Urethane Methacrylates


Polyester urethane methacrylates are most commonly used in applications where low shrinkage and excellent adhesion are required. Polyester urethane methacrylates give slower cure response and therefore need to be formulated accordingly. These oligomers are preferred over their acrylate counterparts for applications requiring ultra-low skin sensitivity.

Polyether Urethane Acrylates

Polyether Urethane Acrylates


This is a workhorse family of urethane acrylate oligomer products. With polyether urethane acrylates, it is possible to cost effectively obtain a wide range of properties. Applications range from adhesives, including laminating and pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSA), to high-quality coatings for wood, metal, and glass.
