EBECRYL LED 03 is a low viscosity amine modified polyether acrylate oligomer that can be added as a co‐resin to UV curable formulations. EBECRYL LED 03, when combined with an appropriate photoinitiator system, provides formulations curable with UV LED, UVA, or other lower energy UV sources by providing improved surface cure. In addition, this effect is also seen when curing with high energy UV systems. The improved surface cure is obtained by mitigating oxygen inhibition of the free radical process.

Performance Highlights

EBECRYL LED 03 is characterized by:
• Low viscosity
• Light color                                                                                                                             
UV/EB cured products based on EBECRYL LED 03 are characterized by the following performance properties:
• Good surface cure response
• Good flexibility
• Adhesion promotion
• High gloss
• Low odor
• Low migration potential

The actual properties of UV/EB cured products also depend on the selection of
other formulation components such as the main binder, reactive diluents,
additives and photoinitiator system.

Suggested Applications

EBECRYL LED 03 is recommended as a co‐resin at 5‐20% by weight on formulation solids to increase surface cure of formulations for overprint varnishes, coatings, flexographic, gravure, screen and inkjet inks that are cured with UV LED, UVA or low energy lamps.

Compatibility

EBECRYL LED 03 is compatible with a broad range of selected resins of different chemical families, such as urethane acrylates, polyester acrylates, and epoxy acrylates. EBECRYL LED 03 is also compatible with alkali additives.                                                                                   
However, EBECRYL LED 03 is not compatible with all resins, and this should be checked prior to use. Acidic resins, such as some adhesion promoters, should not be used in combination with EBECRYL LED 03 as all advantage will be eliminated when quaternary ammonium salts are formed.

Storage & Handling

+
Storage and Handling

Care should be taken not to expose the product to high temperature conditions, direct sunlight, ignition sources, oxidizing agents, alkalis or acids. This might cause uncontrollable polymerization of the product with the generation of heat. Storage and handling should be in stainless steel, amber glass, amber polyethylene or baked phenolic lined containers. Procedures that remove or displace oxygen from the material should be avoided. Do not store this material under an oxygen free atmosphere. Dry air is recommended to displace material removed from the container. Wash thoroughly after handling. Keep container tightly closed. Use with adequate ventilation.
