UV Coating

UV Curable

UV curable coatings offer several advantages:

  • Fast curing - reduced Work In Process
  • Stable at room temperature – Easier processing and longer shelf life
  • 100% solids technology – no VOCs (volatile organic compounds)
  • Primers not required – lower cost
  • Flexible processing – spin, dip, flow, spray, web

UV curable coatings are available in both solvent-based and 100% solids formulations. The choice is largely dependent on the geometry of the part to be coated and the application method utilized. Solvent-based coatings can be used with most application techniques and are required for dip and flow applications. 100% solids coatings can be applied by spin, spray, screen, and web systems.

The absence of solvents makes these coatings attractive from a health and environmental perspective. LTI is at the forefront of development of 100% solids technology and pioneered the use of these coatings in the ophthalmic lens industry.
