Application

• AOMA™ is a lower viscosity among existing functional monomers.
AOMA™ excels at dissolving and diluting various oligomers and polymers, and exhibits high radical polymerizability comparable to acrylic monomers. When AOMA™ is used as a reactive diluent, base agents can be formulated in high concentrations, and are expected to outperform conventional products in applications such as UV-curable inkjet inks.

• AOMA™'s polymers are highly valued as materials that have both "hardness & heat resistance" and "flexibility & toughness" that have been difficult to achieve until now.
Using a UV-curable 3D printer, AOMA™ can impart toughness and heat resistance to molded products.
It shows good adhesion to a wide range of substrates such as glass, metal, and various plastics, and is expected to be applied to various applications such as coating agents for flexible devices and adhesives for joining dissimilar materials.
