Abstract: In order to achieve high acrylate functionality and reactivity of energy cure inks and coatings, there are frequently compromises in flexibility and viscosity. Typically, as the molecular weight and functionality of an energy cure resin increase, the associated viscosity increases and limits the utility of the material. In this presentation we will discuss the effect of material properties on formulating latitude.
