Bomar® specialty urethane acrylates are important to the formulation of UV/EB and LED light-curable adhesives because they provide high-performance, functionality, and a range of mechanical properties to the chemistry, such as improved adhesion, flexibility, resilience, hydrolytic stability, good weatherability, and toughness.
Formulators can select the oligomer with the properties they need to develop an adhesive with the desired qualities required for the application.
Bomar acrylated urethanes are utilized in the formulation of optically clear laminating and pressure-sensitive adhesives for labels and decals. They are also used to create adhesives used in automotive headlamps, potting and encapsulation of electronic components, bonding small parts, and medical adhesives.
Bomar oligomers can be used to formulate a range of adhesives. These adhesives include pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSA), potting resins and encapsulants, medical device adhesives, laminating adhesives, and industrial adhesives. When formulated as an adhesive, Bomar oligomers are excellent as an adhesion promoter or reactive tackifier, improving adhesion to a variety of substrates. They also provide excellent mechanical properties, giving the adhesive desired characteristics like toughness or flexibility. Our oligomers provide several advantages compared to epoxy, 2K, CA, and solvent-based additives. These advantages include productivity and speed, long pot-life, single component, consistency, improved fixturing and dry/cure process.
