Production of Multi-Functional Polyether (Meth)Acrylates
WMB’s innovative technology leads to production of multi-functional polyether (meth)acrylates (MF-PEMA, PEA) that can be used as reactive diluents in the products of UV curable coatings, adhesives, ink, and 3D printing media, providing the above products with adjustable flexibility, hardness, and resilience. Compared with similar diluents on the market, WMB’s MF-PEMA are colorless, non-volatile, non-toxic, non-irritating and pollution-free. What’s more, WMB’s technology produces a series of MF-PEMA, MF-PEA products at a lower cost with varying functionality and molecular weight to meet wide applications in solvent-free products and waterborne coatings.
Production of Multi-Functional Polyether Vinyl Ethers
Vinyl ethers with electron rich character can copolymerize readily with most of vinyl monomers that are electron deficient. When being used as diluents for UV curable coatings or adhesives, Multi-Functional Polyether Vinyl Ethers (MF-PEVE) have much higher reactivity with a shorter curing time, which can be applied not only in radical polymerization system, but also in cationic polymerization system such as epoxy resins. WMB has developed a highly efficient catalytic process for continuous production of MF-PEVE to minimize the safety issues associated with acetylene use. WMB’s technology produces a variety of MF-PEVE products at a lower cost with different functionality and molecular weights that can be applied in solvent-free products and waterborne coatings.
