Radiation-Curable Coatings with Emphasis on the Graphic Arts

  • Howard R. Ragin
Part of the Topics in Applied Chemistry book series (TAPP)


Coatings (including paints, lacquers, varnishes, and similar products) have two general purposes. Regardless of end use or end market, these products are designed for aesthetic enhancement and functional performance. By definition, coatings are nothing more than liquid materials which, after application, solidify to a dry film providing certain desired properties.
