“We are once again eager to participate in RadTech Europe to introduce our most recent resins and photoinitiators for energy-curable systems,” said Magdalena Doherty, general manager at Sartomer EMEA. “In addition to discussing innovative offerings that enable exceptional freedom of performance design, our scientists are presenting on the latest technological developments for UV, LED, excimer, and EB curing.”

Sartomer’s featured products 

Sarbio high-performance acrylate oligomer and monomer resins based on renewable raw materials to help our customers meet their sustainability goals.

Structured urethane acrylate resins, a new class of acrylated urethane oligomers to help enhance and expand end properties of cured materials, together with a fast time-to-market development concept. 

New specialty low-migration photoactive liquid resin designed for indirect food contact applications. Ideal for flexible packaging, direct to pack, labels, and folded carton and board. A new formulation approach will be introduced using photoactive acrylate via photoinitiating moieties into the resin backbone.

New LED-curable liquid thioxanthone photoinitiator Speedcure LTX enables high photoinitiator/resin compatibility and provides better solubility than traditional solid photoinitiators. It features very desirable overall properties and is particularly suitable for low-viscosity applications.

Specialty oligomers and monomers for UV/LED/EB and excimer-curable coatings. Performance advantages of this technology include special surface effects such as ultra-gloss or matte effects. These materials are ideal for automotive, construction, flooring, and other demanding consumer goods applications.

Resins enhance the dielectric performance of conformal coatings, which are thin, transparent polymeric coatings applied to the surface of printed circuit boards and other electronic components. These resins provide performance advantages, including protection from the end-use environment, adhesion to substrates and electronic components, low dielectric loss, and improved mechanical properties.

N3xtDimension building blocks and additives for UV-curable 3D printing, a unique toolbox of specialty oligomers, monomers, cationic resins, and photoinitiators, as well as the possibility to tailor-make solutions to customers’ specific needs. A focus on developing easier characterization methods for elasticity and evaluation of new elastomer materials will be introduced.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
