EBECRYL® 3605 is a partially acrylated ester of a bisphenol A-type epoxy resin, featuring both acrylate and epoxy functionalities. It can be cured with UV radiation using a mixed photoinitiator system comprising free radicals and cationic photoinitiators. This resin has been specifically developed for applications demanding enhanced coating performance properties beyond what conventional UV/EB curing alone can achieve. The end use for EBECRYL® 3605 is in radiation-curable coatings. With a focus on eco-friendly practices, this product carries labeling claims of low carbon footprint (PCF), solvent-free, and VOC-free.
