Global specialty chemicals manufacturer Sartomer Co. has launched a line of acrylate oligomers for photovoltaic applications. Based on polybutadiene or hydrogenated polybutadiene, Sartomer's oligomers are ideally suited as formulation ingredients for PV barrier coatings, sealants, adhesives, dielectrics and encapsulents.
According to the company, Sartomer oligomers offer good oxygen-, moisture- and chemical resistance, and will yield films that are flexible and have low Tg. Hydrogenated products offer the additional benefit of color and physical property stability against light and environmental degradation.
CN307, CN308, CN309 and CN9014 oligomers are currently commercially available. Additional products will be released soon.
