Deuteron® UV RS20 is suitable for all 100 % UV curing coatings and printing inks in particular for solvent-free systems.

The use of Deuteron® UV RS20 especially improves performance in:

  • Smooth / slip surface properties
  • Very low impact on viscosity
  • Water-repellent surfaces
  • Mechanical properties
  • No adverse effect on flexibility


  • 1 - 15 % (calculated on the complete formulation) depending on binder, application and required properties.
  • The optimum dosage can vary significantly and is highly dependent on the used resins, monomers and initiators.


  • The incorporation should be done without shear forces only with a stirrer at a late stage of production to avoid foaming. Grinding processes should be avoided. It can be added either pre-diluted or pure.
