Using its industry-leading strength in molecular design and organic synthesis, FUJIFILM Manufacturing U.S.A., Inc. will showcase five new water-soluble acrylamide monomers and a photoinitiator to attendees at the 188th annual International Elastomer Conference (IEC), October 12-15, 2015 at the Cleveland Convention Center in Cleveland at booth #1059. Combining a product expo, technical meeting, education symposium and various specialized events, IEC is the premier annual conference for customers, educators and suppliers of materials, equipment, tools and services for the elastomer industry.
Expanding on its well known product line for photographic imaging, printing and electronic materials, the new Fujifilm products include polyfunctional acrylamide monomers FFM-2, FFM-3, FFM-4 and FFM-5; monofunctional methacrylamide monomer FFM-21; and photoinitiator FFI-1. Unlike other competing materials, Fujifilm’s monomers’ and initiator’s unique chemistry combines all of the following properties: UV curability, water and hydrophilic solvent solubility, and stability across a wide pH range.
The new monomers and initiator provide substantial benefits for Fujifilm customers in a wide range of industries, notably those producing medical devices, adhesives, optical films, coated films and antifouling agents for building materials and glass. Recent testing of the monomers and photoinitiator by manufacturers of high value products in a number of targeted industries have shown improvements in key physical properties including hardness, adhesion, durability, antistatic and flexibility of cured materials.
