Radiation Curing — A Personal Perspective

  • S. Peter Pappas
Part of the Topics in Applied Chemistry book series (TAPP)

Abstract

Radiation curing involves the polymerization and cross-linking of functional monomers and oligomers (usually liquid) into a cross-linked polymer network (usually a solid film) induced by photons (UV curing) or electrons (EB curing). Curing can occur by either free radical or cationic polymerization, although the former process has commercial predominance. Several volumes on radiation curing are available.1–5
