Sartomer, a business line of Arkema, has launched in-house electron beam (EB) labs with equipment to enable customers to develop and test innovative EB curing formulations on a small scale using Sartomer’s advanced liquid resin solutions. The company has recently installed EB lab units—standalone, compact, simple-to-use electron accelerators—in its France and USA R&D centers. A third installation is planned for its Asia operations.

About EB curing

EB curing is a green technology with very low VOC emissions and no solvent waste. Therefore, demand for EB-curable materials is growing for many applications including coatings, inks and adhesives. EB curing also is a highly productive process because it enables high-speed processing. Because it does not require heat, it is ideal for sensitive substrates. Moreover, EB curing does not require the use of photoinitiators, which minimises migration.

Applications include food packaging, flooring, laminated adhesives, pressure sensitive adhesives, metal coatings, architectural and industrial foils, high-pressure laminates and furniture, and graphic arts.
