In terms of raw materials, the Radiation Curable Coatings are largely dominated by polyester with a small but steady share. The second-largest category is made up of alkyds with a little bit of acrylic and rubber making up the rest. The sales of polyester tend to lag those of the alkyds though the increase in popularity of acrylic and rubber has resulted in an increase in sales of both materials. Increasing woodware industries in APAC regions have increased the requirements for radiation curable coatings. For instance, according to Industries and Associations, there are around 100,000 registered woodware units in India.
It is not necessary to apply Radiation Curable Coatings on freshly cut wood or metal. The finished article will be safe to handle without such application, provided that the surface has been properly prepared. Abrasive preparation is one of the main factors in determining the suitability of an application. Abrasive preparation is also important in protecting the finished product from ultraviolet light radiation. In cases where the surface has already been exposed to ultraviolet light radiation, exposure to radiation-cured coating may reduce the effectiveness of such coating.
