LaromerĀ® PO 9026
Category: Additives for coatings
Description:

Laromer® PO 9026 is a polyether acrylate resin with 50% nano-scale silica for the formulation of radiation-curable coatings for plastics, wood and wood products.

Typical Use:
Laromer® PO 9026 shows an extraordinarily good resistance to scratching and is used in combination with other radiation-curable resins to formulate UV- or electron-beam-curable coatings for wood, wood products and plastics.
 
Scratch resistance can be improved dramatically by adding approx. 30 % (by weight of the recipe) of Laromer® PO 9026.
