Global Acrylate oligomer Market Introduction
Acrylate oligomer are the group of dimers, trimers and tetramers of acrylates. By molecular structure, Acrylate oligomer consists of complex of few acrylate monomers. Acrylate oligomers are majorly used as UV or electron beam curing resin. The mentioned application thus enables the use of acrylate oligomer mainly in paints & coatings, inks and adhesives. Less price of acrylic oligomers compared to other oligomer along with the better curing properties of acrylate oligomers makes it a first choice of the coating, ink, adhesives and others. UV and electron beam are widely used as curing in various industries including adhesives, paints & coatings, automotive, building & construction, and electronics industry. Acrylate oligomers play a vital role in UV and electron beam curing applications. The advantages of using acrylate oligomers is that, it can cure at a faster rate compared to that of conventional curing. Acrylate oligomers use can create low thermal stress on substrate, therefore it is highly preferred in such applications where thermal stress is not allowed on the substrate. Combination of various chemistries with acrylate oligomers can improve cure speed, adhesion, weatherability, scratch resistance, and hardness.
