Coat applied to the surface after preparation and before the application of
a finish coat.
Corrosion that occurs under films in the form of randomly distributed hairlines.
Recommended content of a coating additive in a paint formulation expressed
in weight percentage per solids of total formulation.
Compounding material which, through its ability to absorb ultraviolet radiation
and render it harmless, retards the deterioration caused by sunlight and other
UV light sources. Incorporated into coating, this additive screens the most
harmful UV portion of light and thereby protects films and sensitive substrates
from the photo-destruction.
UV/EB cured coating
Coating in which the liquid application changes under UV/Electron Beam
exposure within seconds into the completely cured film.
Environmentally process using UV light or Electron beam exposure to cure coating films.
It converts the incoming radiation energy into a chemical
reaction of non-saturated oligomers and/or monomers, in which the photoinitiator
plays a key role.
Chemical added to paint to absorb the ultraviolet radiation present in sunlight and stabilize
