Product description

A significant disadvantage of conventional UV Curing is the mandatory use of photoinitiators. It is not uncommon
that they migrate from the product, which can lead to major problems, especially in the food packaging industry.
The DirectCure technology represents an innovative and cost-efficient alternative to electron beam curing (EB)
and makes a photoinitiator free UV curing possible. In this process, the polymerization and crosslinking of
acrylates are triggered directly by photons. The chromophore required for the formation of radicals is in this case
the acrylate molecule itself.
