EXOTHANE(tm) ELASTOMERS

Product Code: X-991-0000

Synonyms:  EXOTHANE 108

Exothane 108 is the acrylate analog of our Exothane 8.  It shares similar properties to Exothane 8 such as enhanced toughness, high percent elongation and good tensile strength but, cures much faster.

 

Product Code: X-992-0000

Synonyms:  EXOTHANE 126

Exothane 126 is the acrylate analog of Exothane 126.  When cured “neat”, Exothane 126 has very high conversion and very low shrinkage.  The resulting homopolymer is very soft and rubber-like.

Share This Post!

One of Esstech’s own, Jim Duff, had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Bicuspid’s Assistant Editor, Rob Goszkowski about EXOTHANE Elastomers.

These unique materials continue to gain popularity for their low volumetric shrinkage, low shrinkage stress and high conversion!  Click the following link to read the whole article.

Radtech UV & EB 2012 Technology Expo and Conference

April 30 – May 2, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, Illinois

Esstech is excited to announce that two of their own will be presenting the upcoming Radtech UV & EB show!  Join us in Chicago and learn more about Esstech’s latest technology, the EXOTHANE™ Elastomers as well as the fundamentals of UV-curable nail gel formulations.

Dr. Mike Idacavage, Director, Business Development
Presenting: Exothane™ Elastomers: A New Series of Versatile Urethane (Meth)acrylates
A novel set of energy curable materials, urethane (meth)acrylates, have been developed. Results of this work indicate that these UV and EB curable urethanes have superior toughness at max strength compared to the controls. In an unusual and unexpected finding, these materials exhibit low shrinkage while at the same time demonstrating high conversion rates. The enhanced properties of the UV curable elastomers, specifically the high percent elongation and hardness, suggest that these novel materials could be used as functional key components to increase the toughness and durability of coatings in a wide range of industrial applications.   The combination of high conversion, low volumetric shrinkage and low shrinkage stress brings interesting attributes to a large variety of applications such as adhesives, photopolymer printing plates, floor coatings, etc.

Dr. Idacavage is also teaching:  UV/EB Professional Short Course: Undergraduate-Level, and chairing the following two sessions: Session: 13 – Photovoltaics & Electronics and Session: 14 – Barrier Coatings & Conductive Films For Flexible Electronics

.
Presenter:  Tom Barclift, Director, Sales and Marketing
Presenting: Chemistry and Formulation of UV Curable Nail Enhancements
The nail enhancement industry has evolved from chemical-cure, methyl methacrylate-based liquid and powder systems to UV-curable systems.  These systems are a precise mix of resins, additives, rheological modifiers and photoinitiators. The basic chemistry of these components will be discussed along with examples of typical formulation strategies.

LOW SHRINK, HIGH CONVERSION

Friday, November 11th, 2011

EXOTHANE Elastomers

Do not sacrifice conversion and the risk of residual monomer contamination to achieve low-shrink properties.  New testing has demonstrated that EXOTHANE(TM) Elastomers have low shrinkage stress, low volumetric shrinkage, AND high conversion.

  • Exothane 8, 94% Conversion, 3% Shrinkage, high % elongation
  • Exothane 26, 96% Conversion, 4% Shrinkage, increased flexibility/toughness
  • Exothane 32, 97% Conversion, 3% Shrinkage, low color and low viscosity

This new data, in addition to superior toughness, tensilse strength and percent elongation make the EXOTHANE product line ideal form many applications including, low-shrink dental restoratives, non-curling industrial coatings, unique UV nail enhancements, tougher anaerobic adhesives and more.
