Study on Performance of Adherence of Water-Base UV Varnish
Adherence is very important for performance of water-base UV varnish and has directly effect on the quality of the coating and the following process. The samples of water-base UV varnish were prepared by different pre-polymers and monomers. The effect of volume shrinkage and wet-ability on the adhesion of water-base UV varnish is studied through a series of experiments. The results show that the volume shrinkage has apparent effect on the adhesion, the smaller the volume shrinkage is, the better adhesion of water-base UV varnish is; the volume shrinkage is increasing with the increasing of the numbers of the functional groups; wet-ability is necessary for the varnish which can adhere to the substrate and has no directly effect on the adherence.
