Evonik Industries is now bringing on to the market the successful TAICROS crosslinking booster. As an additive in UV-curable clear coatings, TAICROS ensures chemical resistance and improved mechanical properties. Market demand is growing for eco-friendly alternatives to conventional solvent-borne coatings; for this reason, UV-curable clear coatings are becoming increasingly important. Their weak point so far has been a less than optimal resistance to chemical attack; TAICROS, however, shows good results in overcoming this problem. Moreover, the chemical structure of the additive improves the mechanical properties, particularly for intercoat adhesion in multicoat structures.
