Ultraviolet Radiation (UV) The portion of the radiant energy of the sun’s spectrum that causes damage to coatings and sealants and to the surface of unprotected wood.
Undercoat The coat applied to the surface after preparation and before the application of a finish coat (usually used in metal finishing).
UV/EB cured coating Coating in which the liquid application changes under UV/Electron Beam exposure within seconds into the completely cured film.
UV/Light stabilizer Chemical added to a coating to absorb the ultraviolet radiation present in sunlight and stabilize organic materials.
UV-absorber Compounding material which, through its ability to absorb ultraviolet radiation and render it harmless, retards the deterioration caused by sunlight and other UV light sources. Incorporated into a coating, this additive screens the most harmful UV portion of light and thereby protects films and sensitive substrates from the photo-destruction.
UV-curing Process using UV light or Electron beam exposure to cure coating films. It converts the incoming radiation energy into a chemical reaction of non-saturated oligomers and/or monomers, in which the photoinitiator plays a key role.
