Deuteron® UV 3100 is designed to facilitate the hardening process of binder systems that undergo cationic polymerization upon UV exposure. This solution is soluble in various binder systems, including common solvents and reactive diluents. It employs C12/C14 glycidilether as a reactive thinner and is characterized by minimal benzene emission and a low-odor profile, contributing to more environmentally conscious and user-friendly applications.

Functions: Hardener, Photoinitiator

Labeling Claims: Antimony-free, Heavy Metal-free, Low Odor

Features & Benefits

Product Highlights
  • The photoinitiator Deuteron® UV 3100 hardens binder systems that polymerise cationically under UV exposure. Deuteron® UV 3101 is soluble in these binder systems including the usual solvents and reactive diluents. The start of polymerisation is initiated by exposure to UV light in the wavelength range of 220 to 250 nm.
  • The maximum absorption is about 240 nm. Its own colour disappears when it is exposed to light so that for all practical purposes there is not any impairment of colour by using Deuteron® UV 3100. The handling is unproblematic at a normal daylight.

The initiator has the following benefits in relation to other initiators:

  • no benzene emission 
  • only slight odour 
  • no heavy metals

Deuteron® UV 3100 does not have a negative effect on film shrinkage because it contents no volatile solvents.
