UV cure adhesives are generally based on free radical curing of acrylate monomers
and oligomers in the presence of a photoinitiator. UV/EB technology is one of the
most rapidly growing technologies in recent times, having undisputed advantages
that explain this recent growth, among them:
UV cure adhesives allow curing on demand: formulators can manage the curing speed
of the related application.
Curing speed of UV/EB adhesives is much faster than a lot of alternatives. It generates
big production cost savings.
UV/EB technology exhibit environmental benefits, being zero emission / low VOC,
which of course is a big subject of concern nowadays.
