Access NAGASE’s detailed presentation about cationic and hybrid curing systems, and how your formulations and products can benefit from utilizing them.

What is cationic cure?

Cationic cure is a UV curing method in which unique photoinitiators promote the polymerization of materials like cycloaliphatic epoxies or oxetanes. It’s a useful tool for any UV formulator, especially in applications like 3D printing, can coating, and industrial adhesives. Now widely available through NAGASE, cationic curable materials can help you accomplish a range of enhanced performance properties, including:

  • Better adhesion
  • Superior dimensional accuracy
  • Excellent hardness
  • Better resilience
  • No oxygen inhibition
  • Low shrinkage

Dr. Mike Idacavage, Advisor for NAGASE Specialty Materials, recorded an in-depth presentation to help explain formulating strategies for both cationic and hybrid systems, key properties, and range of materials available.
