Are Dendritic Oligomers the Answer to LED Curing's Shortcomings?

LED curing has seen significant growth in recent years and although it provides many benefits, it does have its drawbacks. Low cure speeds and oxygen inhibition are among the chief issues associated with LED curing, either of which can possibly lead to incomplete cure and inferior mechanical properties relative to traditional, broad-spectrum curing. In light of these problems, our white paper, "Dendritic Oligomers for LED-Curable Formulations", explores the use of dendritic acrylate oligomers in LED-curable formulations. Dendritic materials are known to impart very rapid cure speeds, exceptional chemical and scratch resistance, and high film hardness when cured with traditional methods. With strengths such as these, it seems that dendritic acrylate oligomers are potentially good candidates for use in LED formulations.

New! BlueWave® MX-250 LED Flood Curing System

This next generation LED curing system provides manufacturers with the curing flexibility of past systems but with new expansion capabilities. The system has a 50 x 50 mm active curing area but multiple systems can be grouped together to create larger curing pattern matrixes as needed. With this new design, the system can be truly tailored to users’ curing needs – allowing them to choose from three different wavelength LED emitters (365, 385, or 405 nm) and providing additional flexibility with the size and pattern of the active curing area. Watch the video to see a short demonstration of the system.

BDT-1015 Dendritic Acrylate
 
BR-1015 Dendritic Acrylate
 

Great for hard, protective coatings such as overprint varnishes or wood coatings. The hyper-branched structure of BDT-1015 imparts a unique combination of low diluted viscosity with unmatched chemical and thermal resistance. This is ideal in applications where withstanding exposure to the hardest of conditions is paramount.
