Specialty Oligomers for Adhesion

Product range


Formulators of cure-in-place coatings for inks, adhesives and electronics need an oligomer that satisfies a range of performance requirements. Sartomer understands the importance of helping formulators find the right oligomers that promote fast cure speed and excellent adhesion for a variety of applications.


That's why Sartomer offers Sarbox® specialty oligomers that provide a broad range of viscosities, physical properties, and cure performance.

Sartomer’s Sarbox® specialty oligomers are unique oligomers offering improved performance in electronics, inks, coatings, adhesives, and plastisol applications. Sarbox® specialty oligomers are high molecular weight, reactive materials that can be cured (polymerized) using any of several free-radical mechanisms, including electron beam (EB), ultraviolet radiation (UV), and peroxide composition. Key determinants of Sarbox® specialty oligomer performance lie in the structural elements of the molecule. Sarbox® specialty oligomers are anhydride and carboxylic acid-containing aromatic acid acrylate and methacrylate half ester blends in solvent or monomer. Acrylation provides the unsaturation or the (C=C) group to the oligomer.


Like most oligomers, the Sarbox® specialty oligomers are typically high in molecular weight and viscosity. Diluents, particularly multifunctional acrylate monomers, typically are used to reduce viscosity to manageable levels and to provide crosslinking. Additionally, the wide variety of available monomer types provide selective enhancement to adhesion, substrate wetting, flow out, cure rate, hardness, and other desired properties. Sartomer provides Sarbox® specialty oligomers as blends in a variety of monomers and solvents.




Sabox specialty oligomers allow formulators to:

  • Harden or flexibilize the cured material
  • Boost hardness, toughness and strength
  • Improve cure rate


Sartomer can assist you with the selection of the most effective Sarbox oligomers to meet your application challenges.
