NEW - Our two new GENOMERS* 3414 and 4514.
is a di-functional Urethane Methacrylate, it provides films with a very good toughness, flexibility and clarity and has a very interesting balance of mechanical properties.
GENORAD* 24 is the latest complement to RAHN'S stabilizer product range. GENORAD* 24 is a unique all-purpose in-can stabilizer for UV LED and other (UV cured) free radical inks, coatings and adhesives.
GENOMER* 4691 is an aliphatic urethane hexaacrylate. GENOMER* 4691 is recommended for systems where outstanding hardness, scratch and abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, and low yellowing are required.

Formulating of UV inkjet inks is a difficult challange to achieve adhesion, flow and printablity performance attributes needed.
RAHN’s product range recommended for different vat photopolymerization processes (e.g. SLA, DLP) and other 3D printing methods.
This Lab Report discusses oligomers and photoinitiator types and includes a detailed UV/LED benchmark study.
Report outlines requirements needed to develop a UV curing ink series for state-of-the-art flexographic presses
Report addresses key subjects of shrinkage in UV/EB cured formulations.
Formulation optimization is necessary to determine the maximum adhesive quality of coating on substrate
Lab Report Oligomer Screening
Lab Report describes how Photoinitiators for UV–LED can be chosen and mixed to provide good cure response, especially where pigments and fillers interfere with light absorption. This Lab Report compares photoinitiators choices with traditional mercury lamp curing and UV LED curing for clear coats as well as pigmented systems.
Laminating adhesives (LAs) comprise a relevant and growing segment among energy curable product markets. Initially regarded as being too expensive and not technically advanced enough for laminating applications, energy curable LA products have become major players in the converting and packaging industries, particularly in specialty applications.
