By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Research findings on Life Science Research are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting originating in Ypsilanti, Michigan, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "UV-curable polyurethane dispersions (UV-PUDs) are fast expanding commercial applications since they combine benefits of both water-borne as well as UV-curing technologies while addressing many technical, environmental and performance benefits. Varying the compositions and cross-link density of UV-PUD polymeric chain backbone can control the film properties of UV-PUDs."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Eastern Michigan University, "There are many design restrictions posed by availability of commercial materials. In the present research work we demonstrate synthesis and application of a multi-functional acrylate polyol derived from soybean oil, as soft-segment of UV-PUDs. A series of UV-PUDs have been designed for high performance coatings that are specifically hydrophobic and oil-resistant. To this end, UV-PUDs based on acrylated soy-polyol have been further modified by siloxane and perfluoro compounds and their films with varying cross-link density have been investigated. The UVPUD films were characterized for their film properties, particle size, contact angle and solvent swelling ratio."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The outcome of this study provides useful insights into design considerations for hydrophobic and oil-resistant UV-curable coatings."
