ADDITOL® MBF is a radical photoinitiator exhibiting very good surface cure. It can be used alone or in combination with other photoinitiators in formulations containing unsaturated materials such as acrylates, methacrylates, vinyls and unsaturared polyesters. With exposure to UV light, ADDITOL® MBF undergoes a photochemical reaction that generates radicals. These radicals will initiate polymerization through the unsaturated groups present in the system.
