New Developments in UV Curable Laminating Adhesives - Formulating for Enhanced Adhesion and Service Properties

Michael Bailey, Sartomer Americas

Abstract: UV curable laminating adhesive use has grown in applications ranging from flexible packaging to complex electronic assemblies. This presents quite a challenge in terms of delivering formulations that provide adhesion to a variety of substrates while simultaneously meeting the demand for continuous improvement in service environment performance. This paper will describe the development of laminating adhesive oligomers and formulating strategies that give formulators the ability to keep pace with the ever evolving end-use performance requirements.
