Amines and amine acrylates as effective synergists for improved surface cure in Type I and II systems.
Lizeth Mendez, iGM Resins
Monday, May 20, 2024 from 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM

LED lamps are becoming more established as a low energy UV-light source for inks and coatings. Due to the lower number of radicals generated at the surface with UV-A light, oxygen inhibition is becoming a more critical issue. With the upcoming new German legislation, the choice of the synergists will also be strictly regulated for food packaging applications. This presentation will provide guidance on the use of aromatic amines as well as aliphatic amine acrylates to obtain a better surface reactivity/yellowing balance in both Type I and Type II photoinitiator systems for sensitive and other applications.

Formulating Urethane Arylate Oligomers for Tough 3D Printing Materials
May 20, 2024  from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Brian Dillman, iGM Resins

The shift from rapid prototyping to durable good manufacture via 3D printing has steadily increased the performance demands of the resins used the manufacturing process. Herein experimental data for the cured properties of formulations based on urethane acrylate oligomers is shown. Tensile mechanical properties, glass transition temperature, and cure-induced shrinkage properties are related back to the urethane acrylate structure, diluent level, and diluent type used in the test formula.

High solubility, Bisacyl Phosphine Oxide photoinitiator with high reactivity for LED curing
May 21, 2024 from 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM
Stefan Van den Branden, iGM Resins

For many years phosphine oxides have been the photoinitiator (PI) of choice in systems requiring absorption in the near-visible light UV-spectrum. With the reclassification of TPO and the limited solubility of the current Bisacyl Phosphine Oxide (BAPO) photoinitiators, there is a need for a new generation of UV-A active photoinitiators. This presentation will show results of a new BAPO type PI, which can be used with both classical Hg-lamp and new LED curing equipment. This type of BAPO is characterized by high solubility in UV-formulations, and improved reactivity. It can be used in both printing inks and industrial coating applications.

Glyoxylates as versatile photoinitiator class for LED curing of standard and low migration systems
May 21, 2024 from 3:00 PM  5:00 PM
Camila Baroni, iGM Resins

With the reclassification of various classical photoinitiators like alpha-amino ketones, and the growing success of LED curing formulators are looking for high performing and safe alternatives. This paper will describe new Type II photoinitiators based on glyoxylate chemistry, showing good reactivity under both Hg and LED lamps. This technology offers new opportunities to formulate inks and coatings, including low migration options for food packaging applications.
