EBECRYL® 160, a reactive diluent, is a staple in ultraviolet light (UV) and electron beam (EB) energy-curable coatings and inks. This versatile compound imparts crosslinking to coatings and inks, maintaining flexibility and toughness. Among common triacrylate diluents in energy-curable formulations, EBECRYL® 160 leads in reactivity and viscosity reduction of oligomers. Compatible with a broad spectrum of acrylated resins used in UV/EB curing applications, EBECRYL® 160's attributes, including hardness, abrasion resistance, and high gloss, contribute to its popularity in overprint varnishes, inks, coatings, and electronic applications like photoresists.

Storage and Handling
Care should be taken not to expose radiation curable products to temperatures exceeding 40°C for prolonged periods or to direct sunlight. This might cause uncontrollable polymerization of the product with generation of heat. Storage and handling should be in stainless steel, amber glass, amber polyethylene or baked phenolic lined containers. Do not store this material under an oxygen free atmosphere. Use dry air to displace material removed from the container. This material should not be stored for more than 2 years.
