Bomar® oligomers exhibit excellent durability and provide a non-yellowing, high-gloss finish in the formulation of LED-curable gel, hard, and soak-off nail coatings. LumiSet™ film-forming resins can also be used to produce hybrid nail polishes. They help overcome common issues like low gloss, color drift, regulatory compliance, and premature chipping associated with traditional nail coatings.
Complete formulation flexibility is possible due to the diverse range of mechanical properties that Bomar oligomers offer, making it easy for formulators to get the coating properties they need.
These oligomers are well suited for nail extensions and sculpted nails, as well as topcoat, color coat, or base coat nail gel polishes sold in professional salons or do-it-at-home kits.
One of the major challenges when formulating hard gels is obtaining a material with a combination of very high viscosity, high hardness, and low heat generation. UV and LED-curable hard gel oligomers will have the highest viscosity and hardness because they are used as an extension of the nail.
Bomar polyether urethane acrylate and methacrylate oligomers provide formulators with the necessary mechanical properties to formulate non-yellowing, high-gloss, high strength hard nail gel coatings.
Formulate LED-curable nail gel coatings that look salon fresh longer with Bomar oligomers that exhibit excellent durability and provide a non-yellowing, high-gloss finish. These LED-curable coatings offer significant advantages over broad-spectrum UV coatings including faster cure times, lower heat generation during cure, and reduced energy and maintenance costs associated with LED-curing equipment.
Bomar oligomers also help overcome common issues like low gloss, color drift, regulatory compliance, and premature chipping associated with traditional nail gel coatings. They also cover a diverse range of mechanical properties allowing complete formulation flexibility, making it easy for formulators to get the desired coating properties. Bomar oligomers are ideally suited for topcoat, color coat, or base coat LED-curable nail gel polishes sold in professional salons or do-it-at-home kits.
A highly desired characteristic of cured nail coatings is easy removal by acetone because it prevents skin irritation. Bomar urethane acrylates aid in the formulation of long-lasting, non-yellowing soak-off nail gel coatings with low MeHQ properties. These oligomers require a lower viscosity relative to hard gel oligomers to make the coating more flexible and easier to remove. Obtaining a medium viscosity oligomer with good adhesion to the nail as well as the ability to soak off easily from the nail is the primary challenge with these types of nail coatings.
Formulate simple, durable long-wear and natural-light-curable hybrid nail polishes with Bomar LumiSet™ film-forming polyurethane methacrylate resins. These tack-free film-forming resins provide the formulations with excellent adhesion, easy removal, inherent toughness, and fast dry times. Their superior flexibility over cellulose resins enable nail polish formulators to easily create 5-free formulations without suspect materials like TSF, DBP, or other plasticizers and adhesion promoters. LumiSet resins also have excellent compatibility with common organic solvents like butyl and ethyl acetate, and with common film formers like nitrocellulose.
Bomar oligomers work to solve challenges with UV and LED cured nail coatings. Bomar oligomers contain properties such as non-yellowing, high gloss, low MeHQ, and low heat generation. These properties make Bomar oligomers suitable for various nail gel coatings including hard gels, soak-off gels, top coats, color coats, and base coats. With Bomar oligomers nail gel coatings look salon-fresh longer.
