Brands

Laromer®, Irgacure®

Properties

  • Laromer® is our trademark for radiation-curable binders and monomers.
  • Irgacure® is the trademark for our photoinitiator range. Combining our additives with our extensive range of epoxy acrylates, polyester acrylates, polyether acrylates, urethane acrylates and functional monomers yields coatings with specific properties.

Applications

  • BTC’s Laromer® types are unsaturated acrylic ester resins and functional acrylic ester monomers for radiation-curable coatings. Functional acrylic ester monomers are non-volatile reactive thinners that serve both to adjust the processing viscosity and, through incorporation into the cured films, to modify the properties of the final coating. Unsaturated acrylic ester resins, due to their different chemical structures, determine within broad limits the basic properties of coatings.
  • BTC’s Irgacure® types are photoiniators used to radiation-curable coatings.
