  • Patent number: 11613509
    Abstract: A conventional polymerization inhibitor is for example an agent to scavenge radicals generated during storage of a radical polymerizable compound and used to stably handle the radical polymerizable compound, but is unnecessary when the radical polymerizable compound is to be subjected to radical polymerization reaction, and is preferably removed at the time of the radical polymerization reaction. The object of the present invention is to obviate inconvenience of removing the polymerization inhibitor at the time of radical polymerization. The radical polymerization control agent contained in a radical polymerizable composition of the present invention functions as a radical polymerization inhibitor for example stored in a dark place, but loses its radical polymerization inhibiting effect when polymerization is initiated while being irradiated with light at a certain specific wavelength at the time of polymerization.

  • Publication number: 20150004374
    Abstract: A plasticized ultraviolet or electron beam (UV/EB) cationically cured coating, such as a release layer or print from UV/EB cured inks, comprises polymers with a reactive plasticizer incorporated therein. The cured coating contains the plasticizing additives permanently attached to the polymer matrix, locking them in place, and permanently flexibilizing the cured coating. The cured coating finds use on varied substrates including printable substrates used in conventional printers and those with release layers for adhesive labels. Coating formulations which form these cationically cured coatings comprise cationically polymerizable monomers and/or oligomers, a reactive plasticizer which is food grade, cosmetic grade, medical grade or biologically benign when incorporated in the polymer backbone, and a catalyst.

  • Publication number: 20140336301
    Abstract: The invention provides highly functional epoxy resins that may be used themselves in coating formulations and applications but which may be further functionalized via ring-opening reactions of the epoxy groups yielding derivative resins with other useful functionalities. The highly functional epoxy resins are synthesized from the epoxidation of vegetable or seed oil esters of polyols having 4 or more hydroxyl groups/molecule. In one embodiment, the polyol is sucrose and the vegetable or seed oil is selected from corn oil, castor oil, soybean oil, safflower oil, sunflower oil, linseed oil, tall oil fatty acid, tung oil, vernonia oil, and mixtures thereof. Methods of making of the epoxy resin and each of its derivative resins are disclosed as are coating compositions and coated objects using each of the resins.
