UV curing resin brings new hope to various industries

With the concept of low-carbon, green and environmental protection going deeper and deeper into people’s lives, the chemical industry, which has been criticized by people, is also actively self-adjusting in terms of environmental protection. In this tide of transformation, UV curing resin curing technology, as a new environmental protection technology, also welcomes a historic opportunity for development.  

In the 1960s, Germany Z first introduced the UV curing resin coating applied to wood coating. Since then, the UV curing resin curing technology has gradually expanded from a single base material of wood to the coating application of paper, various plastics, metals, stones, and even cement products, fabrics, leather and other base materials. With the development of high gloss and sub gloss products, the appearance of Z-type and sub type can also meet the needs of different bronzing and sub type.  

UV curing resin curing technology is a curing process that uses ultraviolet light (UV curing resin) or electron beam as energy to trigger a chemically active liquid formula and realize rapid reaction on the substrate surface. Because the components in its formula, such as UV curing resin, are involved in the curing reaction and no volatile harmful substances are discharged into the atmosphere, its technical advantages of low-carbon, environmental protection and no VOC emission have attracted the attention of all countries in the world. China has carried out the research and application of UV curing resin curing technology since the 1970s, and achieved rapid development in the 1990s. According to relevant statistical data, the output of UV curing resin coatings (UV curing resin coatings) in China is about 200000 tons, with an output value of about 8.3 billion yuan, an increase of 24.7% over 2007. The product line involves bamboo and wood coatings, paper coatings, PVC coatings, plastic coatings, motorcycle coatings, household appliance coatings (3C coatings), metal coatings, mobile phone coatings, optical disc coatings and stone coatings, Architectural coatings, etc. The total output of UV curable resin ink in Guangzhou in 2008 was about 20000 tons, and successfully penetrated into offset printing, gravure printing, embossing, silk screen printing, flexo printing and other fields that originally belonged to the territory of highly polluting solvent ink.  

Although UV curing resin curing technology has excellent technical advantages, more and more domestic manufacturers begin to turn to the development of UV curing resin curing technology. However, through the observation of the industry, the marketing level of UV curing resin manufacturers is still far behind that of traditional solvent based enterprises. We can often see some marketing strategies of traditional coating and ink enterprises from TV, Internet, newspapers and other media, but rarely see enterprises in the field of UV curing resin curing have such ideas and skills, which is undoubtedly not conducive to the rapid and healthy development of the industry.
