DSM’s NeoRad™ U-6288- the first Easy-to-Matt 100% UV curable resin with excellent performance

Waalwijk, NL, 08 Nov 2010 00:00 CET

DSM NeoResins+ announces the launch of NeoRad™ U-6288, a 100% UV curable resin, which can be used in coatings and overprint varnishes for luxury packaging and high end promotional printing. NeoRad U-6288 offers broad formulating latitude and high matt efficiency, working with most common matting agents.


This new resin is compatible with a wide range of epoxy, urethane and polyester acrylates making it easy for the formulator to enhance the performance of the coating or varnish. Additionally, NeoRad U-6288’s highly efficient use of matting agent can result in lower total cost of formulation, as less matt additive is required.

Soft-Feel Capable:

NeoRad U-6288 offers the formulator opportunities to develop customized matt overprint varnishes and coatings for flexo and screen applications. For screen printing specifically, by using our formulating guide, NeoRad U-6288 can be designed to provide a combination of matt and soft feel properties that can differentiate your products in the market.

Sustainability is one of DSM NeoResins+ key drivers for new product development. NeoRad U-6288 offers a fast cure response, which translates to fast processing; saving time and energy.

Superior Performance:

Matt coatings and varnishes produced with NeoRad U-6288 do not burnish. They outperform existing market standards with proven superior chemical and abrasion resistance. Moreover, because of its low viscosity, the resin has improved flow and more effective pigment wetting. This allows the formulator to create matt products with superior application properties.

Until now, in the UV curing market, there was no universal resin available that would give a perfect matt appearance in combination with exceptional performance in other fields. NeoRad U-6288 provides these benefits, as well as the freedom to formulate with a wide variety of materials.

There are many possible application areas that can be enhanced with a matt and soft feel experience. NeoRad U-6288 is especially recommended for luxury packaging, direct mail advertising, and high end publication printing.

NeoRad U-6288 is developed by DSM NeoResins+, a leading developer and manufacturer of specialty resins for the Graphic Arts industry, as an extension of the current range of UV curable resins. The product is now available globally, via DSM and DSM’s distributors.
