Deuteron® UV RMP is a micronized wax compound specifically crafted as a matting additive for UV-curable inks and coatings. When incorporated into UV-curable systems undergoing free radical polymerization, Deuteron® UV RMP induces controlled incompatibility during the curing process. This micronized wax compound offers robust matting effects for 100% UV systems and is free from monomers.

Product Highlights
  • Deuteron® UV RMP is a micronized wax compound de- signed as matting additive for UV curable inks and coat- ings. In UV curable systems (free radical polymerization) the addition of Deuteron® UV RMP leads to a controlled incompatibility during the curing process.
  • The incompatibility between wax and resin is initiated by the crosslinking during the curing process and leads to a microscopic surface deformation of the resin. Films matted using Deuteron® UV RMP show an outstanding mechanical stability (no particle-based matting), high chemical resistance and pleasant feel.

Application and Dosage Information

Deuteron® UV RMP is suitable for a wide range of applications including:

  • Wood and joinery coatings
  • Floor coatings
  • Overprint varnishes

The use of Deuteron® UV RMP especially improves performance in:

  • Matting
  • Burnishing / Polishing resistance
  • Smooth feel
  • Chemical resistance
  • Low impact on viscosity


  • 2.5 - 15 % (calculated on the complete formulation) – the needed addition level depends on the system reactivity, curing conditions and desired gloss level and should be tested individually.


  • Deuteron® UV RMP can be incorporated using a common high-speed stirrer. In low viscous systems it might be necessary to use a high shear dispersing unit to properly disperse the material. Because of the non-polar character Deuteron® UV RMP can potentially stabilize foam in the system. It is recommended to disperse the material at a high viscosity step (i.e. into the resin) and try to prevent the incorporation of air during stirring.
