Purity: 99%
Omnirad 819 is a versatile photoinitiator for radical polymerisation of
unsaturated resins upon UV light exposure. It is especially suited for
white pigmented formulations, the curing of glass fiber reinforced
polyester/styrene systems and for clearcoats for outdoor use in
combinations with light stabilizers. Thick section curing is also possible
with this photoinitiator.
Omnirad 819 may be used, after adequate testing, in UV curable
formulations for clear and for pigmented coatings on wood, metal,
plastic, paper and optical fibers as well as for printing inks and
Omnirad 819 exhibits at low concentrations an outstanding curing
performance in highly opaque white and colored furniture coatings or
screen inks containing rutile titanium dioxide or colored pigments and
affords minimum yellowing after exposure to sufficient amounts of UV
radiation. Additionally the outstanding absorption properties of
Omnirad 819 allow curing of thick sections.
Omnirad 819 can be used in combination with other photoinitiators
such as Omnirad 184 or Omnirad 651. With the latter it is especially
suited to cure polyester/styrene resins as used for glass reinforced
Due to its photosensitivity at longer wavelengths, Omnirad 819 can
easily be used in combinations with UV absorbers. It
is therefore ideally suited for use in weatresistant UV curable
The amount of Omnirad 819 required for optimum performance
should be determined in trials covering a concentration range.
