UV LED curing resins & additives

UV LED curing is the safe and eco-friendly alternative

The UV LED curing technology is a novel and accepted method for industrial curing alongside full spectrum UV, Electron Beam curing or heat curing. In the UV LED curing process, liquids are exposed to UV light which causes a chemical reaction that hardens the liquid. UV LEDs can be faster, cleaner and safer that other light sources for curing. The switch on/off capability, fast curing cycles and generally low curing temperatures make UV LED curing the perfect ecological alternative.

Our versatile product line for UV LED curing systems

The UV LED curing resins EBECRYL® LED 02 and EBECRYL® LED 03 can both be added as a co-resin to UV curable formulations and transform these into powerful UV LED, UV-A, or low energy curable systems by providing improved surface cure. Furthermore, the EBECRYL® LED line enhances other formulation properties like pigment wetting and adhesion. The UV LED resins are suited for performance applications and packaging coatings, plus, they are BPA-free and emit low to zero VOC which make them a perfect fit for a greener UV LED curing. Final UV LED coatings benefit from improved scratch and chemical resistance, and improved hardness.
