LumiSet™ Film Formers

LumiSet™ Film Formers for Long-Wear Nail Polish

Strong on Their Own. Tougher with Light.

Welcome to the future of simple, durable raw materials for long-wear and natural-light curable hybrid nail polishes! Building on the strengths of Bomar® oligomers for UV nail gels, Dymax's all-new LumiSet™ film-forming polyurethane and polyurethane methacrylate resins offer excellent adhesion, easy removal, inherent toughness, and fast dry times. Their superior flexibility over cellulose resins allows nail polish formulators to easily create 5-free formulations without suspect materials like TSF, DBP, or other plasticizers and adhesion promoters. LumiSet™ resins also have excellent compatibility with common organic solvents like butyl and ethyl acetate, and with common film formers like nitrocellulose.

Different material options are available for base/color coat formulations or top coat formulations, allowing either for improved adhesion to the nail bed or excellent intrinsic hydrophobicity built into the resin backbone. Both reactive and non-reactive versions of LumiSet™ resins are available.

  • Great adhesion to nails, eliminating the need for a base coat or adhesion promoter
  • Extreme toughness for improved durability and wear
  • Compatible with organic solvents and common film formers
  • Fast, tack-free dry time – excellent properties dried, superior properties cured
  • No need for soaking – the resins are easily removed with traditional nail polish removers
  • INCI registered & MeHQ free
