EBECRYL® P115 is a copolymerizable amine used as a hydrogen donor, or photoactivator, in ultraviolet light (UV) curable coatings and inks. When used in formulations in combination with a photosensitizer (e.g. ADDITOL® BP), EBECRYL® P115 provides rapid UV cure response in air by mitigating the effects of oxygen inhibition at the coating or ink surface. It has recommended levels are from 5 to 15% based on the total formulation, usually combined with 3-5% photosensitizer.

Performance Highlights

EBECRYL P115 is characterized by:
• Light color
• Low viscosity
• Improved stability vs. conventional tertiary amines
• Low volatility

UV/EB cured products based on EBECRYL P115 are characterized by the
following performance properties:
• Excellent UV cure response
• Reduced odor
• No surface migration of amine
• High gloss

The final properties of UV/EB cured products also depend on the selection of
other formulation components such as reactive diluents, additives and
photoinitiators.

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.
