Abstract

A thin-film calorimeter was used to evaluate the polymerization rates of pigmented photopolymerizable systems. As a result of a wide linear response range, which is more than an order of magnitude greater than that of the photo-DSC, the thin-film calorimeter is capable of measuring both small and large signals accurately. It was used to measure the polymerization exotherms of thin-films of a photocurable acrylate monomer with added pigment as well as commercial UV curable pigmented ink formulations.
