Radical photopolymerization controlling agents

Radical photopolymerization is a process commonly used in photoresist manufacturing and other applications, because solid products are quickly obtained by applying low energies. However, the high polymerization rate entails problems in adhesiveness, contraction, broad molecular weight distribution, and many other aspects. The polymerization rate may generally be controlled through light irradiation and temperature, but a facility requires flexibility.

Kawasaki Kasei is developing “photopolymerization controlling agents” capable of controlling the rate of radical photopolymerization.

These efforts are expected to permit production of polymers with desired properties simply by addition of the radical photopolymerization controlling agents at any photopolymerization facilities.
