Abstract

Since the introduction of photocuring of coatings as a viable industrial process well over a decade ago, the UV curing industry has followed a line of steady growth. This paper deals with the mechanisms and components which characterize photocurable coatings. Free radical and cationic photoinitiated polymerization are discussed in light of key review references from the recent literature. In addition, a section is dedicated to discussion of the lamp sources available for photocuring operations.
