New Class of High Performance Photosensitizers for Photocurable Polymer Coatings ready for commercialization


A technological university from Poland wants to develop and commercialize a technology for the production of polymer coatings curable by ultraviolet radiation (UV) imposed on various types of surface, such as aluminum, paper, plastics, wood and metals. The technolgy is compatible with UV LED diodes, which make it advantageous in several fields compared to traditional mercury MPM lamps. Partners are sought to cooperate with via license agreement.

Partner sought

The applicability of the technology covers printing, paints and varnishes, adhesives and sealants, furniture, automotive and electronics.The university is seeking for university/R & D companies able to develop and commercialize the product and to cooperate via license agreement. The role of the partner is to further develop the technology to the industrial scale and introduce it internationally.


Technological University from Poland which deals with production of polymer coatings curable by ultraviolet radiation (UV) imposed on various types of surface applicable in several types of industry such as printing, paints and varnishes, adhesives and sealants, furniture, automotive and electronics is looking for cooperation. Ionic photopolimerization is supposed to be widely used in all processes where the oxygen access to the reagents cannot be limited particularly for coating of paints and protective layers as well as in rapid prototyping techniques. Different from classical mercury MPM lamp diffusing the wide range of radiation, UV LED lamps diffuse the narrow zone of radiation; the user has the possibility to choose particular valve length which is advantageous in the case when the radiation of strictly defined valve lenghts shall be used. Despite the classical mercury UV lamps in terms of valve lenght can be considered as more flexible, they consumme more energy, thus optimization of operational costs may consists of application of more units of smaller LED lamps. LED diods usage advantage is also the radiation focused on unique direction nor requiring shielding. The university is looking for partners to cooperate with via license agreement ready to develop and commercialize the technology.

Advantages and innovations

- much higher initiation efficiency; shortening of the photopolymerization induction period and increase of monomers photocure process speed, - increase the rate of photocurable polymer layer production lines, - optical - advantageous properties, so that they can be used as photopolymerization processes photosensitizers for many monomers (vinyl, epoxy, acrylates, methacrylates and others), - compatibility with UV LED diodes, which secure process without ozone emission and heat release, - energy savings through an increase in the production rate, - environmental friendly due to the possibility of running processes using UV-LED panels.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
