EBECRYL® 5850 stands out as a high-performing, medium-viscosity bio-based diacrylate. Coatings and inks formulated with EBECRYL® 5850, cured through ultraviolet light (UV) or electron beam (EB) energy, demonstrate exceptional reactivity along with impressive hardness and scratch resistance. This versatile product finds applications in radiation-curable coatings, inkjet inks, varnishes, and flexography inks. Noteworthy features include high gloss, faster cycle time, and low-temperature curing. Claims labels such as bio-based, bisphenol-A-free, and low carbon footprint (PCF).
