The main application for ExoCure™ LED is for UV-cure litho and flexographic inks for use with LED lamps in the 365-405 nanometer spectrum. ExoCure™ LED- is supplied as a translucent crystalline solid with a pale yellow color. Upon storage, Exocure™ LED will exhibit crystallization which can be successfully reversed by the application of heat ( maximum 145°F/63°C) and mild agitation. Typically 7%-9% of ExoCure™ LED is used for lighter, more photo-transparent colors, and 10% to 15% of ExoCure™ LED-XL is used for darker and more photo-opaque colors.
