150 mW/cm2 at 20 cm distance and 75 mW/cm2 at 50 cm distance), however, often without characterization of the wavelength range. Thus they are better measured with radiometry (as discussed later on) for the actual UV system. 1. Terms and SI units of light emission Quantity SI unit Symbol Radiant energy joule J Radiant flux = radiant power watt W radiant energy/unit time Radiant intensity watts per steradian W sr−1 power/unit solid angle Radiance watts per steradian per square meter W sr−1 m−2 power/(unit solid angle × unit area) Irradiance watts per square meter W m−2 power/unit area Energy density joules per square meter J m−2 Spectral radiance watts per steradian per square meter per nanometer (wavelength) watts per square meter per nanometer Spectral irradiance Remarks measured in W sr−1 m−2 n m−1 measured in W m−2 nm−1 One of the most important parameters is the energy density, which is the radiant energy arriving at the surface per unit area, the time integral of irradiance, usually expressed in J/cm2 or mJ/cm2 .

The technical feasibility of LED’s has been evaluated by comparing the properties of a urethane acrylate adhesives cured with an LED light vs. a multiple wavelength mercury arc 48 UV COATINGS – BASICS, RECENT DEVELOPMENTS AND NEW APPLICATIONS F IG . 22. Reflector geometries. lamps, showing that similar properties can be obtained. Curing studies with epoxies, on the other hand, illustrate that curing with LED systems is limited by the absorption of common cationic photoinitiator systems. Current LEDs are commercially available at wavelengths of 400 nm or higher.

8, Chapters 3 and 4). 6) is the key step to very efficient curing, since it is a chain reaction where for instance one produced radical can add more than 1000 monomer units within a fraction of a second. The steps after the initiation are very similar to the normal radical polymerization of monofunctional monomers, which are widely used to synthesize thermoplastic polymers, like polyethylenes, polypropylene or polystyrenes. The main difference in coating systems is the use of multifunctional monomers or oligomers, which 26 UV COATINGS – BASICS, RECENT DEVELOPMENTS AND NEW APPLICATIONS leads to the formation of networks.
