Based on the unique properties of the fluorine atom, fluorochemicals are chemicals that possess various characteristics that other organic compounds cannot achieve. DIC features a lineup of fluorochemicals that includes fluorosurfactants which possess advanced leveling capabilities.
DIC has begun offering MEGAFACE RS-75 UV-reactive fluorine-based surface modifier
MEGAFACE RS-75 is a surface modifier developed by DIC's unique additive design techniques. Adding RS-75 to UV coating provides functions to repel water and oil well and to prevent the adherence of fingerprints or stains to a coating film surface.
Since it possesses UV-reactive groups, it has excellent durability because fluorine components are secured to the surface of the coating. It can be used to protect the surface of optical films and the bodies of electronic devices.
Surfactants and surface modifiers have different surface activating effects according to the materials they are added to or the methods with which they are used. DIC develops surfactants and surface modifiers according to your demands by matching them to the intended materials.
The DEFENSA OP Series is a UV-reactive low refractive index resin with superb transparency primarily for products that make use of optical materials such as PCF (polymer clad fiber) clad (sheathed) materials.
