Sartomer’s New High-Performance UV-Curable
PUDs Improve Formulating Latitude of Coatings
With its new line of UV-curable water-based PUDs, Sartomer, a business unit of Arkema Inc.,
marks an innovative approach to UV PUD chemistry. Developed to be free of solvents, surfactants
and tin catalysts, CN9500 and CN9501 provide enhanced formulation latitude. Both products are
supplied at approximately 40 percent solids content and are compatible with other water-based
CN9500 and CN9501 contribute excellent coatings properties after water removal and UV curing, including
good flow and leveling and a low minimum film formation temperature (MFFT). Both are dry to the touch after
water removal. They create a warm appearance on wood, are non-yellowing and are easily matted to a lowgloss finish.
CN9500 exhibits balanced flexibility and hardness, while CN9501
has exceptional hardness and abrasion resistance without
brittleness. A shared resistance to water, stain and chemicals
makes these PUDs ideal for:
Coatings (wood, plastic, paper, paperboard and metal)
Adhesives (laminating and pressure sensitive)
Both CN9500 and CN9501 are also suitable for flooring
applications, electronics and fabric treatments.
“With the release of this PUD product line, we are delivering
greater formulating latitude with the consistent quality that
Sartomer customers rely on,” said Terry Quinn, coatings business
manager. “CN9500 and CN9501 meet or exceed the PUD industry norm in every tested performance aspect –
with top marks for flexibility, yellowing, abrasion resistance and hardness.”
