VHM to introduce new Radcure (UV/EB) - Monomers and Oligomers

(Conshohocken, PA, September 1st, 2013) In their continuing effort to better serve their coatings and ink customers, Van Horn, Metz & Company, Inc. (VHM) is pleased to announce the addition of a high quality, Radcure (UV/EB) product line to their portfolio. Radcure products curable by ultraviolet light (UV) or electron beam (EB) radiation, have been adopted by many graphic arts (overprint varnish, ink), wood (coatings, fillers) and industrial coating formulators. VHM has a strong position in serving these markets. Whereas conventional coatings/inks are cured by heat, formulations based on Wincure products offer many advantages over the traditional methods:
- high production rate
- high and consistent coating quality
- reduced reject rates
- improved scratch and solvent resistance and superior bonding
UV/EB curing processes are very energy efficient and formulations are characterized by low VOC providing suppliers with an environmentally friendly option.

VHM will be offering acrylate raw materials: oligomers and monomers. The initial portfolio will consist of a basic epoxy acrylate (EA), EA/monomer blends, HDDA, TMPTA, TPGDA, and TMP(EO)3TA all of which are used extensively in graphic arts, wood and industrial coatings:
• EA-129 Diacrylate ester of Bisphenol A Epoxy
• EA-129P75 EA-129 blended with 25% TPGDA
• EA-129T80 EA-129 blended with 20% TMPTA
• TPGDA Tripropylene Glycol Diacrylate
• HDDA 1,6 Hexanediol Diacrylate
• TMPTA Trimethylpropane Triacrylate
• TMP(EO)3TA Trimethylpropane Triacrylate

Following this launch, VHM has plans to bring a more complete line of the oligomers to the market including specialty EA, Urethane Acrylates, and Polyester Acrylates to meet the various application needs. The monomer line will also be expanded to include more low irritation products.
Van Horn, Metz & Company Inc. with the main office in Conshohocken, PA offers customers specialty raw materials for personal care and industrial use. Their portfolio of products includes Resins, Pigments, Dyes, Additives, Fragrances, Extenders and Fillers for industrial markets, and Surfactants, Silicones, Esters, Rheology Modifiers, Exotic Oils and Butters and Color Effect Pigments for the personal care industry.
